The Skoda Superb is one of the most underrated cars available on the UK market. We take a look and discuss why it has the attributes to satisfy most family drivers.

Performance

The 1.8 TSI engines, with either 150 BHP or 158 BHP is a better option than the 1.4 TSI 123 BHP as this may struggle when the Superb is carrying a lot of weight. The 3.6 litre diesel V6 produces 256 BHP but is not economical meaning you will be filling up at the pumps quite often. The 1.6 litre producing 138 BHP and the 2.0 litre 168 BHP however are much more efficient diesels.

Practicality

The Skoda Superb Estate has a tremendous amount of space within for passengers to sit in comfort. The boot is very spacious and is able to contain a great amount of luggage.

The drive

The Skoda Superb Estate offers a wholly satisfying drive which gets better as the vehicle gets faster. Motorway cruising is quite a pleasurable experience. There is a great amount of grip and steering accuracy too.

Running costs

Running the vehicle will not be too expensive and is overall great value for a car of this size. The Skoda Superb also holds its value very well too.  The 1.6 TDI Greenline II is a great purchase for considering its low fuel emissions and low petrol costs.
