Which used Skoda Superb hatchback should I buy?
The 1.9-litre diesel is old and noisy, while the 138bhp 2.0 is rough under acceleration. The 168bhp 2.0-litre is the most refined, but it will push up the purchase price. There's also an efficient 1.9-litre Greenline diesel version.
For petrol cars there's a 123bhp 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine that's not a slow as it sounds. There's also a 1.8 TSI, and four-wheel-drive versions are available with either the 1.8-litre petrol or an automatic-only 3.6-litre V6.
The entry-level S comes with air-con, alloys, four electric windows and an MP3-compatible stereo. The SE gets climate control, parking sensors and a touchscreen stereo with a six-CD multichanger. Range-topping Elegance adds leather seats, sat-nav, electric seats, Bluetooth and automatic wipers.
