4.7 out of 5

The vast size of the Skoda Superb estate’s interior means it’s an extremely relaxing car to travel in, especially in the back, where the huge amount of legroom stops passengers feeling cramped on long journeys. The cabin’s logical layout also means you rarely have to hunt around for buttons or controls, while on cars equipped with sat nav, the system is simple and straightforward to use.

The Volkswagen Group connection is obvious inside the Superb, where the dashboard feels solidly constructed and is easy to use, although it doesn’t quite have the same polish of a more upmarket model. The seats are very comfortable, regardless of whether you’re in the front or the back, and there’s plenty of space for adult occupants.

Skoda Superb Estate equipment

The basic S version of the Skoda Superb estate is reasonably well equipped, especially when you consider how affordable it is. You get 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air-conditioning with an air-conditioned glovebox, front foglights and Bluetooth phone connectivity.

Step up to the popular SE specification and Skoda adds suede and artificial leather seats, a pair of umbrellas hidden in rear door compartments, 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights that turn with the steering wheel, rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, dual-zone air-conditioning and an upgraded stereo. There’s also an SE Business model aimed at company-car drivers, which comes with sat nav and a DAB digital radio as standard.

Elegance trim gets luxurious features including full leather seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, bright xenon headlights, sat nav, a DAB radio, adaptive headlights, electrically adjustable heated front seats, a heated windscreen and hill-start assistance, plus automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.

Finally, the top-end Laurin & Klement model is as swish as the Superb comes, with a brown leather interior and numerous bits of upgraded trim, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, parking cameras, a TV tuner and a powerful 10-speaker stereo. There are also a couple of useful practicality features including a boot net and a moveable aluminium bar on the boot floor that can be shifted to separate luggage.

Skoda Superb Estate options

There aren’t any option packs to speak of on the Superb, but there are heaps of individual options – far too many to list here, in fact. We think it makes the most sense to find a trim level that meets your needs and stick with that rather than ticking lots of boxes, but there are some worthwhile upgrades offered, such as metallic paint and an electrically operated boot with a retractable parcel shelf – both costing £535.

Although rear parking sensors are standard on all but the S model, front and rear sensors at £340 are worth considering given the Skoda’s size.
