    My car

    Having moved to the Superb from an A6 Avant 2.0 Tdi, I could probably sum up very succinctly. Is the Skoda an excellent value for money, spacious, extremely well equipped car, capable in more or less every respect? - undoubtedly yes. Do I prefer it to the Audi A6?- no chance.

    Although it shares a platform with the Audi and many common parts, you just realise where the extra money spent goes on the Audi. The Skoda gets access to the VW parts bin, whereas the Audi has its own supply. Ergonomically inside as well there are a number of little things that make the driving experience that much more pleasant.

    Nevertheless to judge the Skoda on its own merits, I opted as a company car primarily for three reasons - 1) budget 2) company car tax 3) space for a tall driver (me) and a growing family. Whatever you have heard about space is true, it has insane amounts of room.

    In Elegance trim, everything you want is there and more besides. Lots of nice luxuries like footwell lighting, heated rear seats, xenon led lights and yes ... that umbrella in the rear door compartment.

    The MPG is excellent, I now have the 170 BHP as opposed to the 140 in the Audi and am getting better MPG (45 average over 6500 miles so far and improving steadily). Motorway cruising is extremely relaxed and the 170 engine provides loads of mid-range torque when needed.

    My one gripe with the Skoda - the Columbus multimedia system, (the VW RDS510 I think). Give me the Audi MMI back any day of the week.

    My car

    In DSG form this is quite simply the best car to buy. It's fast, the leather seats are a match for Volvo's best, the space in the back is bigger than Range Rover provide, the ride and handling are switchable so you can have a bit of fun when in Daft mode (not like a Porsche mid you!)and it costs so little to run(£100 1st Service) everyone can run one. The sat nav system lets you play DVD's, the Bluetooth lets you play your iPhone and ITS JUST GREAT. Forget the badge (All the bits under the bonnet are AUDI)and toddle off and one. I had to give mine back to my employer and couldn't get another and I still hanker after it.

    My car

    If you have a family I think this is one of the best cars you can buy. I came to this as my company car from a lotus so it was always going to be hard to win me over however the spec of the car is fantastic for he price it has every option and the sat nav and touchscreen media system is super easy to use. The car is massively comfortable has tonnes of room for everything, loads of leg room in the back and extremely well made. The 1.6 works fine on the motorway and I've never really regretted not opting for the 2l diesel (although the dsg on that is very good), fuel consumption is 45mpg on 22k miles to date. Risky to call a car the superb but I think it really reflects how good the car is. Definitely recommended.

    My car

    Purchased 13 pre-reg Superb Estate ex Skoda with approx. 6000 miles on clock in November 2013. First impressions excellent and moved up from Octavia Elegances previously owned.

    The interior is well equipped and top quality. Space is exceptional and load restraint system great. Have covered about 3500 miles so far in what has been horrendous weather but still has returned approx. 48 mpg overall. Expect more in summer. excellent motorway vehicle and very comfortable even on winding A class roads.

    Door retracting mirror system has failed using the key fob and dealer has had one go at repairing same but computers down so they could not get further advice from Skoda so still pending.

    Tyre wear appears excellent and fronts still over 5.5mm and rears 6.75mm measured with calibrated gauge Delighted with vehicle so far and look forward to long distance trip soon
