For The Superb has an innovative boot/hatch arrangement, a cavernous cabin, excellent build quality and plenty of equipment as standard.

Against The ride can be a bit fidgety over patchy surfaces and it’s possible to buy similar space for less money. The car’s sheer size can make parking tricky.

With the Skoda Superb you get executive car space and quality at family car prices. Cheaper rivals offer almost as much room, though, so it doesn’t stand out in the class.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Skoda’s Superb serves up a super-size portion of space and safety.

Entry-level S trim provides all a family could reasonably ask for, so it’s what we recommend. SE is also good value, but while Elegance and Laurin & Klement trims provide further equipment, they’re pricey.

Running costs for most versions should be pretty low, because fuel economy and CO2 figures are competitive, especially for the 1.6-litre diesel models. The Greenline model unquestionably makes the most sense for company car drivers, but the 2.0 TDI 140 is another good bet because it’s only a bit more expensive to run and is quieter. Private buyers who don’t do many miles a year should go for a 1.8-litre petrol version.
