Car of the Year Awards 2023: Best executive car for value
A top-notch executive car must do it all – frugally and in style. Buyers want effortless long-haul capability, a comfortable and classy interior, and low benefit-in-kind tax rates...
Skoda Superb 1.5 TSI 150 SE Technology
If you fall into that camp and are considering a Skoda Superb, you might ask yourself: “Why should I pay more for a premium badge?”And on the inside, certainly, that’s a valid question; the Superb outdoes the Mercedes C-Class for solidity, and SE Technology trim gives you all the kit you’ll need, with full leather trim and electric seat adjustment.
Space inside is also impressive; no one will be cramped up front, and there’s enough knee room in the back to chauffeur a basketball player around. Plus, the boot is vast, matching the Tesla Model 3’s appetite for luggage in one big gulp.
The Superb’s entry-level 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine has enough power and is pretty economical. Overall, it’s no Tesla tax haven, but it’s still a sweet deal.
