The Skoda Superb is a car that literally lives up to its name. Despite being pitched against everything from a Ford Mondeo up to a BMW 3 Series, the plucky Superb makes an excellent case for itself – especially if space is at the top of your agenda.

No matter where you sit inside the Superb, you'll have room to stretch out. Its boot is larger than those in most rvials, too, meaning that even with a couple of tall adults sitting in the back, you'll still have room on board for their holiday luggage. Skoda adds some neat touches to make your life easier, including carrying hooks to hang your shopping on, a rechargable torch and umbrellas hidden inside each front door – a feature that you might expect to find on a Rolls-Royce, but not usually on a mid-range family car.

Our full 16-point review can take you through the Superb's other virtues, but this guide is dedicated to the plethora of options you can add.

Assuming you've gone for our recommended 2.0-litre diesel engine and SE specification, you'll already have most of the kit you're going to want, including dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system.

Here's what we'd add, though, to bring even more luxury without upping the cost too much.
