The Skoda Superb estate has a quality interior and a five-star Euro NCAP rating

Reliability & safety Rating

4.6 out of 5

Skoda’s reputation for reliability and customer service is one of the best of any car manufacturer and the Superb estate is right up there with the cream of the company’s cars. The manufacturer can apparently do no wrong in the eyes of its customers and this car isn’t short on safety gear, either.

Skoda Superb Estate reliability

Skoda outperformed every other car manufacturer in our Driver Power 2014 customer satisfaction survey, cementing its excellent reputation for customer service and long-term reliability. The top three cars in the survey were Skodas, with the Superb finishing on the podium in third place behind the Skoda Yeti and Skoda Citigo.

The company’s dealers did well, too. Though they’re not quite as far up the league table as the cars, a fifth-place finish out of 32 manufacturers is still extremely impressive and the four brands ahead of them (Subaru, Porsche, Honda and Lexus) typically specialise in more expensive and luxurious cars than the affordable models that Skoda produces.

Skoda Superb Estate safety

The Superb is a big car and has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, so you can be confident it’ll protect you in the event of a crash. Standard safety equipment on every model includes seven airbags, daytime running lights, electronic stability control and a brake pad wear indicator.

SE models add rear parking sensors, while Elegance trim includes adaptive headlights and hill-start assistance. The top-of-the-range Laurin & Klement version includes parking cameras.

Hill-start assistance can be added to lower-spec Superbs for £115, while rear side airbags can be fitted for £275. Front and rear parking sensors cost £340 and the full parking assistance pack (including the cameras that are standard on the Superb Laurin & Klement) will set you back £540.
