Yes the Auto Express Driver Power Survey for 2014 is out.
with the Skoda Yeti winning again.
Best cars to own in 2014 | Auto Express

However if you switch to the reliability section the picture changes with several Hybrid:crazy: vehicles featuring at the top. e.g the Toyota Prius. But ignoring the inherent bias of such surveys and the "holier than thou" hatred such vehicles appear to engender. :devil: Could it be that coupling an internal combustion engine to an electric generator/motor type of powertrain is inherently longer lasting/ more reliable than a conventionally engineered car? After all if its good enough for railways submarines and ships round the world even FORMULA 1 :eek: maybe its the future. Maximum torque at Zero RPM might not be all bad. :dk:

Interesting thought. By the way, the Yeti section on the Skoda forum have been running a campaign for months to get people to vote on the Auto Express poll. They are v well organised.

Very true. But at least they can rest assured that they own the best car ;)

Well one with better residuals based on an albeit artificially inflated reputation , so perhaps not too stupid after all.;)

I must admit that I have been very impressed by the Yeti that we own. Would certainly agree with the survey results!
