Review

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.

The sportiest trim comes with a sports steering wheel, Alcantara seat trim, heated sports front seats, an electrically adjustable driver's seat, 19in alloy wheels, a 9.2in infotainment screen, Wi-Fi and performance monitor (extra readouts for g-force, oil temperature, oil pressure etc in the infotainment system), carbon-effect interior trims and sports suspension.

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.
