Skoda Superb Estate Is For People Who Don’t Care About The SUV Trend

Skoda’s addition to the midsize family car segment is called the Superb, and it’s the largest in its sector.

It builds upon the Volkswagen Passat, goes against vehicles such as the Ford Mondeo and slots above the Octavia, sitting at the top of Skoda’s range along with the Kodiaq SUV.

The Superb has always been considered a very practical D-segment car both as a sedan or an estate, but the latter does get something pretty impressive: a 660-liter (23.3cu-ft) boot space that can increase up to a massive 1,950 liters (68.9cu-ft) with the rear seats folded.

Combined with the all-wheel drive system that’s available on higher grades, the Superb Estate really is a great alternative for those who want passenger and boot space but won’t be drawn into the current crossover/SUV craze.

What else should a potential buyer know about it? According to CarsGuide review, it has a nice exterior, an interesting cabin with lots of equipment, plenty of safety systems and loads of room on the rear bench. Driving it is smooth and the grip is good even in front-wheel drive form, although having such a large car on European roads is not exactly easy, as it has quite a large turning circle.

So, without further ado, let’s see what else the reviewer had to say about it in the video that follows.

    That wasn’t a review. It was a promotional video.

      Seemed pretty unbiased to me, but then I was swayed by the accent

    • LeStori

      Carsales is an Australian listed company . It is involved in Online automotive, motorcycle and marine classifieds business so yes an advertisment of a sort.

      • Matt Campbell

        And Carsales is a different company to CarsGuide, which is the outlet that published this review… And the outlet I happen to work for!

  • Carenthusiast

    Hope Skoda Designers don’t ruin Superb’s facelift as they did on all of their other Skoda facelifts lately!!!

    I’m hypnotized.

    • Autoexperte

      Do you know what the Czech word škoda mean?

      • Bash

        No. tell me.

  • Love her accent and she’s easy on the eyes…

    • LeStori

      As an Australian I find her accent annoying. It is interesting how local accents often do not sound as sexy as non local accents. What you do not have you want…

  • jfalckt

    This car just seems to have it all, great review.

  • LeStori

    Buy it now. VW has warned that Skoda are doing it “too well” . Skoda thinks on it’s feet. VW is bogged down in corportate mire. VW. The the German Toyota.

    • wait a minute

      if you don’t like SUV band wagons

  • I’ve got the 162kW 2.0 TSI Superb wagon. It’s as practical as expected, but what really surprises me is the fuel consumption. I’ve achieved as low as 5.8L/100km combined and it rarely goes above 7.5L/100km.

  • Vassilis

    Superb car. Sorry :p

  • Bash

    Ok, now i know.
