2020 Skoda Superb iV review: verdict

The new Skoda Superb iV is the brand's first hybrid, but is it the pick of the Superb range?...

The Superb iV costs some £5500 more than what remains the best version of the Superb overall, the 2.0 TDI 150. That’s a big hike, although company car drivers will then pay just 16% BIK tax, rather than 28% for the diesel.

There’s much more merit in the plug-in hybrid, too, primarily its decent electric range and competitive price. Just don’t forget that for about £1800 more, you can have the slightly better refinement and ride of the Passat GTE.
