To say that the new Skoda Superb Estate offers plenty of space is quite an understatement.
With all five seats in place, the big wagon has a boot capacity of 660 liters (23.3 cu-ft), a record in the segment and 27 liters more than the previous Superb Combi.
Then there’s the impressive legroom for rear passengers, likened by Auto Express’ Jack Rix to what the Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers. But while all these details about interior space and loading capacity have been known for quite a while, it’s the car’s handling and ride that potential customers must be curious about.
The car tested was fitted with the 150PS (148hp) 2.0-liter TDI engine mated to a six-speed manual, arguably the configuration that will attract most buyers.
The reviewer described it as “all the engine you’ll ever need,” praising its quietness and comfort. The suspension is supple even in the firmest setting, making the Superb Estate a very comfortable car to be in. Obviously, it’s not the sportiest estate car, but no one will have such expectations from the Superb.
