Read the Honest John Review

  • Skoda Superb Estate (2010 - 2015)
    Huge interior and load space. More legroom in the back than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Clever touches throughout. Well specified as standard and great value for money.
  • 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.
