What used Skoda Superb saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Skoda Superb saloon?

The big-engined Superbs become comparatively cheap used buys very quickly - their resale values are hit hard during their first year from new - but they won't be that cheap to run. The shrewder option for higher-mileage drivers, then, is to go for the 2.0 petrol or 1.9 TDi turbodiesels.

The petrol and diesel V6s, for instance, are noticeably dearer to service - about as expensive, for instance, as a BMW 5 Series - but the lesser models cost roughly the same as a VW Passat, with which the Superb shares much of its mechical parts.

No model will stiff you at the fuel pumps. The worst beating you'll get is from the V6 and 1.8 T petrols (34mpg), but the 1.9 TDi models can nudge 50mpg. Insurance ranges from the group 8 of the 2.0 petrol up to 15 for the 2.8 V6.
