What used Skoda Superb estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Skoda Superb estate?

Used Superb buyers get masses of car for their money. Fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions are respectable, and the turbodiesels are impressively frugal.

Our favourite 1.4 TSI model is capable of 40mpg and emits just 157g/km CO2 so is cheap to tax, too. The 2.0 TDI 170bhp 4x4 manages 44mpg, but will demand a higher price on the forecourt. Conversely, prices will be cheapest on larger petrol models.

The 1.6 TDI Greenline II model makes a lot of sense if you do a lot of miles because of its low CO2 emissions, but was introduced in January 2011 so prices remain high.

Some people think of Skoda as Volkswagen's poor relation, but the Superb makes a mockery of that assumption. It has classy soft-touch plastics on the surfaces you touch most frequently and the build feels impressively solid.
