Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Superb’s interior wouldn’t look out of place in far more expensive cars. It’s classy, has an upmarket appearance and is easy to use on the move.

We found the interior materials worthy of special mention, while all the buttons and switches work with real precision.

The driving position is good and the steering wheel adjusts for height and reach plus there’s plenty of adjustment in the seat.

However, the biggest bug-bear is rear visibility. The long shape restricts the view out of the back, making reversing difficult. Thankfully, all but the base-model S have rear parking sensors.

Skoda Superb Estate comfort levels are extremely high. In fact, this is quite simply the most comfortable car that you can buy for the money.

Not only is it more impressive than similarly priced cars, but it gives the likes of the BMW 7-Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Jaguar XJ a run for their money – and they cost tens of thousands of pounds more.

Passengers in the front can really stretch out, while those in the back can fully appreciate the huge amount of leg-room (more than 100cm to be precise), with adjustable footrests for an added touch of luxury.

There is a little engine noise at lower speeds but once on the move Superb is exceptionally quiet and well insulated against wind and road noise. This combined with the excellent ride quality adds to the feeling of refinement and robust build quality.
