What Car? says...
If space is a luxury, the Skoda Superb Estate must be one of the most luxurious cars in the world. And yet, while its interior and boot are huge, its price is anything but. What's more, Skoda offers a wide range of petrol and diesel engines and manual and automatic gearboxes, as well as offering four-wheel drive on selected models, so there's something for everyone to pick from. There's even a plug-in hybrid version, with enough electric range for a fossil-fuel-free frolic across town.
However, there are many other aspects to consider when buying a new estate car. Is it well made? Does it offer a comfortable ride? Is the handling up to par? Can I work the infotainment system without a tech-savvy teen permanently on hand? All valid points and, because the Superb Estate has a multitude of appealing alternatives to pop on to your shopping list, worth thinking about. Those rivals include the ubiquitous Ford Mondeo Estate, the remarkably similar Volkswagen Passat Estate, and the premium offerings, such as the Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring.
