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

Range-topping Laurin & Klement effectively comes with all the options boxes ticked, so you get luxuries such as Dynamic Chassis Control (which we discussed earlier in the ride section), virtual dials, a rearview camera, a park assist feature, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, rear climate control, a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, and more powerful Canton sound system.

This engine turns the Superb into a real wolf in sheep’s clothing that looks unassuming from the outside but has enough pace (0-62mph in 5.2sec) to keep up with a BMW M340i. It’s very smooth and comes with four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox, but running costs are quite high. There's no manual gearbox option available.
