What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Superb hatchback?
The Volkswagen Passat is a cousin of the Skoda Superb and is just as good to drive and huge inside. It rides well, too, and the diesel engines are a touch more refined than those in the Superb. The interior is a classy place to be and it’s good value on the used car forecourts.
The Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport is relatively cheap to buy both new and used, as well as being well-equipped and reasonable to drive. Its rear head room is a little tight for an otherwise large car and the boot is much smaller than a Superb's but it’s still worth a look.
