Review

The Skoda Superb is pretty comfortable, well equipped, great value for money and one of the roomiest cars in its class. If you can forego a premium German badge, it's a spankingly good car all round.

Trim: Laurin + Klement

The bells and whistles model adds (over the SE L trim) a 10.3in digital instrument screen, 18in alloy wheels, adaptive suspension, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, rear climate control, a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, a rear-view camera, park assist, lane assist, blind spot monitoring, a 9.2in infotainment screen and on-board Wi-Fi.

Engine: 1.4 TSI iV

The PHEV is highly recommendable. This uses an 85kW electric motor paired with a 1.4-litre petrol engine for a total power output of 215bhp, and it's one of the quicker versions of the Superb (0-62mph takes 7.7sec). It also has an official electric-only range of 35 miles, can be charged in 5 hours from a three-pin plug (3.5hrs from a home wall box) and has CO2 emissions of just 35g/km – that means very low company car tax.
