What Car? says
For A used Skoda Superb Estate has an enormous amount of space for both people and luggage, and all at a great-value price on the used market. It's comfortable and relaxed to drive, and the cabin quality is top-notch.
Against The Superb Estate isn't 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.
