Auto Express Driver Power 2009

Our sister publication Auto Express announces the UK's best and worst cars to own


The Driver Power 2009 results are in, and it’s time to name the best and worst cars in the UK.

The numbers have been crunched, the data compiled and the results analysed – now it’s time to dish the dirt on the UK’s cars.

Want to find out what the best car in Britain really is? Driver Power can reveal all. After processing more than 20,000 completed questionnaires, Auto Express’s annual motoring satisfaction report has now been released.

With a shock new winner and a big surprise in the top manufacturer ranking, the results are more fascinating than ever. The top five are revealed in this exclusive preview below – and it’s great news for Jaguar.

The firm’s British built XF has scooped the overall number one spot in its debut year, seeing off the challenge from Skoda’s top value Superb, and last year’s winner, the Octavia. In the end it was the Jaguar’s alluring combination of luxury, comfort and driving dynamics that secured the victory in the motoring community’s top driver satisfaction poll.

Two SUVs complete the top five, shattering the myth that drivers are getting tired of all of their 4x4s.
