Brits happier with new cars

Driver Power, in a recent survey, revealed that Britons are happier in 2018 with their new cars than ever before.

Overall vehicle satisfaction is up this year, with an average score of 90.94%, up from 89.83% in 2017. Every single category showed an increase in satisfaction compared to last year, proving Brits are enjoying their cars more.

Martin Saarinen, consumer editor at Auto Express, said, ‘The results from this year’s survey show an improvement in driver satisfaction in every single category, as well as a rise in overall satisfaction. The last 12 months have seen some exceptional cars launched, so it’s no surprise to see Brits happy with their new motors. There’s still work to be done, though, as new car owners continue to tell us that their motors aren’t always trouble-free.’

Of the 75 cars in this year’s survey, the Peugeot 3008 is the car which makes its owners happiest, with a 93.88% satisfaction score. That’s a record score compared to previous winners such as the Skoda Superb in 2017 at 93.42%.
