How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s more room in the front of the Skoda Superb than you'll find in many premium execs, including the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. It's on a par with the capacious VW Passat, so head and leg room won't be an issue unless you're humongous. The interior is wider than average, which means there's plenty of shoulder and elbow room.

There are also lots of storage options, including a large air-conditioned glovebox, cupholders in the centre console and a hinged cubby below the steering wheel. The door bins are large and shaped to hold a 500ml bottle. Thoughtful touches include a sunglasses holder by the rear-view mirror and space for an umbrella to be stowed neatly inside each front door (you get one umbrella as standard).

The fold-down centre armrest includes two cupholders. There are two map pockets on the backs of the front seats and each door has a pocket that’ll hold a 500ml bottle.

Skoda Superb 2021 RHD rear seats

Seat folding and flexibility

The rear seats are split 60/40, but there's also a ski hatch if you need to accommodate people with something long and thin like, well, a set of skis. A fold-flat front seat is available with certain trims. That means you can accommodate extra-long loads, stretching from the tailgate right up to the dashboard.

The rear seatbacks can be lowered by pulling a lever on the top of each backrest or, at extra cost, with handy release levers that are more conveniently located next to the boot opening.
