For The Skoda Superb Estate has an enormous amount of space for both people and luggage, and all at a competitive price. It's comfortable and relaxed to drive, and the cabin quality is top-notch.
Against It's not the prettiest car in the world, and it's a shame that the back seats aren't more intelligent in the way they fold down. Some of the diesel engines are too noisy.

The Skoda Superb Estate provides huge space, but not at a huge price. The cabin is classy, and the driving experience is relaxed. Shame it's not a little cleverer.

The Skoda badge is a symbol of value, and the Skoda Superb Estate is no exception. It provides Mondeo Estate space for Mazda 6 Estate money. It's not just the boot that's massive, either – the cabin also has more space than most will need.
We'd avoid any versions involving the DSG twin-clutch semi-automatic gearbox or four-wheel drive – both are nice to have, but add unnecessarily to your outlay. There are valid arguments for both the S and SE trims, but we can't see much point in choosing the expensive Elegance.
As for engines, we'd go for one of the diesels. The 138bhp 2.0 TDI is a good balance of price and performance, but the 103bhp 1.6 TDI Greenline II unquestionably makes the most sense for company car drivers, and still feels perky enough.
