The Skoda Superb is a compact executive car competing against the likes of the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat as well as more premium offerings such as the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. The range features petrol and diesel engines, a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes and even two or four-wheel drive on selected models.
There are many reasons to consider a Superb: it’s competitively priced (even when judged against other value propositions such as the Ford Mondeo), it’s well equipped and its efficient engines and strong resale values make it surprisingly cheap to own. One of the Superb’s strongest assets, though, is how roomy it is.
For all buyers, but particularly business users, the 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel in SE Business trim makes the most sense because it delivers strong performance with low CO2 emissions. A cheaper alternative for private buyers is the 1.4 SE petrol.
