    My car

    I have had mine for just over a year, having had an Octavia estate before. Was looking for another Octavia but there were few nearly new around so picked up my Superb Se as a dealer demo 6 months old for a good deal. Great service from Blade Gloucester as well. It's huge and you're aware of that around town but it is surprisingly narrow. Ideal for my needs, though, as I have 2 young boys and bikes to cart around. The 4 year old looks lost in the back seat! Soon learnt to ignore the 61 "combined" mpg. Mine is averaging 43 mpg including daily town work. It's very reassuring and solid but not a driver's car. One day I'll have that Gti! Overall,very pleased but would probably downsize next time round.

    My car

    For the first time in 24 years, I have changed cars and stayed not only with the same brand, but also the same model. The only change this time was moving up from 140CR SE Twin-door to a 170CR Elegance Estate.

    I really enjoyed my 3 years with my last Superb and just 4 days with my new model has me convinced that the next 3 years will be even better.

    The 170CR has more punch but almost the same economy. The electric leather seats are noticeably more comfortable. The Columbus is a very decent Audio and SatNav setup which does not leave me missing my TomTom, and with the iPod connection and upgraded sound system, the audio is very impressive for the modest amount the options cost.

    The ride is significantly more comfortable, with less 'jiggling' that my old SE, even though I now have 18" rather than 17" rims, which was an unexpected bonus.

    Finally, the new face-lift version really looks excellent. Especially in the estate form, it can got toe-to-toe with the A6 or E-Class as possibly the most hansom estate available AND nearly the biggest.

    Well done Skoda!

    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.
