The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
All versions of the Skoda Superb have a multiway adjustable steering wheel, although the reach extension it offers isn't as good as in the BMW 3 Series. A height-adjustable driver’s seat and adjustable lumbar support are also standard, and from SE Technology trim, the driver's seat is electrically adjustable with memory settings.
With electric adjustment fitted, the driver’s seat doesn't drop down as low as the manually adjustable version, but either version will be supportive on a long trip. A large adjustable centre armrest is fitted to all models.
You're helped by a prolific number of parking sensors (they’re standard front and rear on all trims), while a rear-view camera is a reasonably priced option or standard on the top Laurin & Klement trim.
It’s just as good at night. You get bright LED dipped and main-beam headlights fitted as standard, but it’s worth considering the excellent matrix LED adaptive headlights. They're expensive, but adapt their light output automatically to shadow the cars in front, so you can leave them on main beams without dazzling other road users.
Sat nav and infotainment
Entry-level SE trim gets an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, a DAB radio, voice control, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, which lets you use your phone apps on the car’s screen. From SE Technology, that's boosted to include built-in sat-nav. Sportline Plus and Laurin & Klement models have a larger, 9.2in touchscreen that can display 3D maps and has enhanced connectivity.
