    My car

    Fantastic car! Huge room all-round. Comfy. Full of kit blah blah. Bought the estate (much prettier that the saloon/hatch) for not too much money, getting over 25% off in the vat free (plus a bit more) offer, and 3 years free servicing. An Audi A6, with approx spec would have been about twice the price, and the Skoda's quality is fantastic. I've had the car over a year now and i've not had a single rattle or fault. The reason of the discount is that the car is petrol, and the residuals will be worse than the diesel, but its a fine, smooth engine, and pretty economical too. I'm getting 40mpg, which is exactly what the book says it should get. The 170ps diesel will give me 10mpg more, and save about 30 quid a year on tax, but saving about £5000 on differentials of the cars in the first place (very little discount on the diesel models) made it a no brainer as i don't do a massive mileage. Wholly recommend the car. My wife bought a Fabia a few months early which great too, which just shows how much we like the Skoda brand. I wouldn't say its highy underrated but the cars are way better than VW, better quality, cheaper, and most Skoda drivers appear very happy! Just look at the surveys......

    My car

    Cont. 3. Equipment / Comfort The list is endless in the Elegance, Full Leather (heated/memory/lumber/fullelec)/Sat Nav(its better than a TomTom), Electric everything / Directional Bi Xenons / 30GB HDD, radio,MP3, CD, DVD player/ elec heated memory mirrors / parking sensors and ambient lighting everywhere……..i could go on for ever, ( and all that spec is standard ). With reference to comfort the front seats are like comfy arm chairs (so great on long journeys, I regularly do 450 mile day trips) yet supportive for when you decide to have some fun on the windy roads, Oh yeh and I almost forgot there is limousine standard leg room in the rear too.

    4. Value Well put it this way. To spec a top of the range BMW 3 series / Merc C Class to the same level as the Superb Elegance would cost between £10,000 to £12,000 extra on there list price!!!! Plus you will get around 45mpg and lower co2 taxing too. Nuf Sed. Not sure if I have missed anything but to sum up, if your only reason for not getting this car is its badge – WAKE UP! You are missing out on one of the best cars money can buy in this segment. Take one for a test drive, you WILL be impressed.

    The Skoda Superb is supposed to be the VW Passat’s ugly sister. All I can say is it’s turned out to be Cinderella and she will go to the ball!!

    My car

    New company car, replaced a Honda Civic Hybrid. The Skoda Superb is excellent, loads of toys and my favorite is the electronic memory function for the seats and mirrors, makes it far easier if there is more than one driver of the car. I have only had this car for 7 weeks and have only done 3,000 miles, but so far it appears to be performing well. The MPG is ok, but not as high as the average claimed yet, With previous diesel cars I've had I have found that higher MPG does not come in until the engine has done at least 10,000 miles. so hopefully it will be more than capable of the stated MPG. The car is excellent to drive and does not feel "almost, too big" with front and rear parking sensors it is easy to park and manouvere. The reversing lights are not bright enough in my opinion though, which is quite common with newer cars, not much use in the dark where reversing is the only option. The Superb feels safe, and the 1.6 engine is more than capable. On long journeys the car is more than comfortable for both the driver and passengers. On bends and country roads the car feels very safe, and the headlights on the ellegance model are crystal clear for night driving, although other driver sometimes think that you have full beam on, but they soon stop flashing if you flash back!! The front heated seats stopped working after two weeks, but the Skoda dealer have sorted them with no issues.

    My car

    The arrival of twins prompted me to replace my Mini Clubman Cooper S with a Superb and I haven't been disappointed. Whilst the Superb dosen't offer the same thrills as the Mini it is quiet, comfortable and reasonably fast when required. It provides masses of space inside and swallows up the twins in their baby seats and the double pram whilst leaving plently of space for other things. I bought mine new with the Bluetooth phone and heated seats for just over £18,000, which is a bargin considering the levels of standard equipment. Against the Passat it is cheaper, better equipped, better to drive and just as well made. The only reasons for giving your money to VW are either badge snobbery or the stlying, which is the only area that isn't top notch.
