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.
