How to spec a Skoda Superb Estate

If ever a car's name has summed up what we think about it, that car must be the Skoda Superb Estate. It really is a multi-talented people mover, being comfortable and luxurious enough to please even the most demanding executive car buyers, while also being spacious enough to take their family, all of their belongings and even the family pet along for the journey. Little wonder, then, that the Skoda Superb has been our favourite estate car for five years running.

Our full 16-point review will tell you more about the Superb Estate, including what it's like to drive and live with, but here we're more concerned about which boxes on Skoda's options list you should be ticking to get the best experience. Well, start with Skoda's 2.0-litre diesel engine and our recommended SE Technology trim and you'll already have most bases covered, with things like sat-nav and heated front seats coming as standard. Here's our guide on adding more luxury, though, without blowing your budget.

Skoda folding front passenger seat

Fold-flat front passenger seat (£105)

Let's imagine that you've taken an especially adventurous trip to Ikea and now need some way of loading that new bookcase into your car. Well, with one flick of a lever your Skoda Superb Estate is transformed into a van, because not only will its rear seats fold flat, but the front passenger seat does too. That means loading even the bulkiest of items should be a doddle, and it will cost you only £105.

Skoda boot release toggle

Rear backrest release from boot (£95)

Having realised that your weekend shop isn't going to fit into the Superb's already capacious boot, you'll want the process of lowering its rear seats to be as easy as possible. Well, with this option, it is, because all you need to do is flip two levers in the boot to drop the rear seats and free up more space for luggage. It's a cheap upgrade, too, at £95.
