Which used Skoda Superb estate should I buy?
The 123bhp 1.4 TSI petrol engine isn't as slovenly as it sounds, but it will struggle to pull a heavy load. The pokier 1.8 TSIs, with 150- or 158bhp, are better, but don't go near the thirsty 256bhp 3.6 V6.
The diesels are popular: we recommend the 138bhp 2.0 TDI as it has plenty of punch. The 168bhp version is stronger still, but more expensive. The fuel-sipping 1.6 TDI diesel models are adequate unless there's a full load onboard.
S trim forms the entry point for the Superb Estate range, and these cars come with all the basics: alloys, air-conditioning, four powered windows, remote locking and a CD stereo with MP3 socket.
Stepping up to SE trim provides Alcantara upholstery, cruise and climate controls, a CD changer and parking sensors, to which SE Plus adds touch-screen sat-nav and Bluetooth. Elegance trim adds xenon headlamps, leather upholstery and rain-sensing wipers.
