The Skoda Superb 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 executive car.

SE L is our pick of the range because it's reasonably priced and adds plenty of kit to the SE Technology package, including 18in alloy wheels, full matrix LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, dynamic indicators, keyless entry and an electrically operated boot.

If diesel is not your thing but you have an eye on efficiency, then the plug-in hybrid 1.4 TSI iV 218 comes highly recommended. This uses an 85kW electric motor paired with a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine for a total power output of 215bhp. It's one of the quicker versions of the Superb (0-62mph takes 7.7sec) and has an official electric-only range of around 40 miles, which is similar to the BMW 330e.
