  • Skoda Superb (2015 on)
    Large hatchback that offers excellent value for money. Limousine-like legroom and bootspace. Efficient range of engines. Improved even more with 2019 facelift.
  • Skoda Superb Estate (2015 on)
    Near perfect as a practical family estate car. Great value for money. Comfortable and quiet on the move. Huge amounts of rear legroom.
