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.

get the best price

SE L trim is a worthy upgrade if you want a few extra toys, because over and above SE you get Matrix LED headlights, 18in alloy wheels, a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, keyless entry, blind spot monitoring, privacy glass, heated electrically adjustable front seats and leather seat trim.

This petrol is our pick of the range. With 148bhp it has enough poke to match the 2.0 TDI 150 from 0-62mph (in 9.0sec for the record) and while you have to work it harder up hills than the diesel, it has the requisite oomph for most people's requirements. It's also smooth, reasonably fuel efficient and pretty good on company car tax.
