Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

Keen list prices and competitive PCP finance rates make the Skoda Superb Estate a shrewd private buy, but you'll pay even less if you look at our New Car Deals pages. Competitive servicing costs make the best-selling versions relatively cheap to run, although the Superb's depreciation over three years isn't as impressive as on premium alternatives, including the BMW 3 Series Touring.

If you're a company car user, there's little doubt that the best version is the plug-in hybrid 1.4 TSI iV 218. With low CO2 emissions and a reasonable electric range, its benefit-in-kind (BIK) car tax rate is lower than any petrol or diesel Superb – although not as low as some smaller plug-in rivals.

SE Technology includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, privacy glass and adaptive cruise control.

However, if you can afford it, we’d recommend stepping up to our favourite SE L trim. This brings 18in alloy wheels, dynamic indicators, keyless entry, an electrically operated boot and matrix LED headlights. Beyond that trim, the equipment lists get longer but the price advantage of the Superb Estate starts to wane.

Overview

The Skoda Superb Estate is a truly fabulous thing. For a start, it's absolutely massive, so it has the practicality base covered. Yet it's far from a one-trick pony, proving pretty comfy, nicely made, well equipped and great value for money. If you can forego a premium German or Swedish badge, it's a spankingly good estate car.

  • Great value and well equipped
  • Limo-like passenger space
  • Huge boot with lots of additional practical touches
  • Other rivals are more fun to drive
  • Some premium rivals have better resale values
  • The driving position isn't perfect
