About SKODA SUPERB

The Superb launched its latest edition recently and it was a sea change. It didn't look like an overgrown Octavia, and it attracted attention like a luxury car should. Space in the Superb's rear seat got even better, which is what this is about. You'll find it hard to find many cars up to twice the Superb's price that will offer the comfort and space that this car does, and that makes it a bit of a bargain. It is also packed with goodies: a touchscreen audio system, powered front seats, and a world first in the 'twin door' system, which meant that the boot lid could be opened either like a normal sedan, with the hinges below the rear glass, or like the notchbacks that the Octavia and Laura are, with their tailgate hinges above the rear glass. The other features also include new start stop button and keyless entry on the Superb.

Motive power comes from a 160 bhp, 1.8 litre turbocharged petrol mated to a seven speed DSG gearbox, a 140 bhp, 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel. The petrol also comes with a six speed manual transmission. This is the variant for those who are chauffeur driven as this will help them to reduce the cost of the sedan, without affecting their comfort levels. The features for the rear passengers is the same, while some brownies have been removed for the driver and co-driver, which won't affect Superb owners. And all those who like simple stick shift, the Superb manual makes a lot of sense.

The place to be, however, is the rear seat - although the absence of a separate temperature control for the rear seats is puzzling. The cheapest variant is at a shockingly reasonable price and in terms of features and quality it can give competition to the German luxury sedans.
