Every Superb comes with stability control, seven airbags – including a driver’s knee bag – and a post-collision braking system. An automatic city braking assist system is also fitted, which brakes the car automatically if the car senses an imminent collision at less than 30mph. Other standard safety equipment includes tyre-pressure monitoring, along with Isofix child-seat mounting points in the outer rear seats.
Optional equipment includes blind-spot and lane assist, and an automatic parking system that steers into a space for you, although all of this is standard on Laurin and Klement models.
In the Euro NCAP crash tests the Superb scored the maximum five-star rating, performing well in all the categories but gaining particular merit for adult and child protection.
The Superb comes with an alarm and immobiliser as standard, and security experts Thatcham rated it with a score of five out of five for its resistance to theft and four out of five for being broken into.
