Read the Honest John Review

  • Skoda Superb (2008 - 2015)
    Limousine-like amounts of rear legroom. Clever dual tailgate means it's both a hatch and a saloon. GreenLine model is very economical. A lot of car for the money.
  • Skoda Superb (2002 - 2008)
    Old model Passat stretched with extra rear legroom. Well liked by owners, especially taxi drivers.
