Which used Skoda Superb saloon should I buy?

You're spoilt for choice. Of the three petrol engines, we'd go for the 114bhp 2.0 petrol. Although it's not that quick, it's refined and cheaper than the others. The turbocharged 148bhp 1.8 T ups the pace for virtually no penalty at the fuel pumps, while the 2.8 V6 throws a 190bhp punch from within a silky-smooth glove.

As for the diesels, the 2.5 TDi V6 has huge reserves of smooth, strong pulling power and is pretty frugal given its performance, but it's a pricey used car. There's also a rarer 140bhp 2.0 turbodiesel, but the 1.9 TDi models (100bhp to 129bhp depending on the model) are better value, very economical, quick enough in everyday driving and our favourite diesel engine.

The entry-level models wear Classic badges and carry all you need for comfortable, safe family motoring. The bar is raised on Comfort models and Elegance is the plush, part-leather range-topper.
