The Superb Estate combines the best of the hatchback with an even bigger load area. It's still comfortable and easy to drive, while its 633 litres of boot space expands to a vast 1,865 litres with the rear seats down. No rival comes close. The most efficient engine in the range is the 140bhp 2.0 TDI diesel, which returns 52.3mpg. Petrol options include the 170bhp 1.8 TSI and the 3.6-litre V6 petrol with four-wheel drive. From the driver's seat, the estate is like the hatchback: comfortable and well built. The only difference is a small button that opens the tailgate automatically.
