Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 27 - 65 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

As with most other cars, depreciation is the biggest factor when looking at Skoda Superb Estate running costs, but even this is respectable. The estate fares a little better than the saloon, because buyers prefer the added versatility, but both retain a significant chunk of their original purchase prices.

Only the V6 petrol falls into a higher road tax band and all the diesels, plus the petrol 1.4 TSI, are competitive in terms of their road fund licence – especially the diesel Greenline II. Skoda dealers offer excellent customer care and servicing rates are very affordable.

Skoda Superb Estate emissions are seriously low for a car of this size.

The cleanest model is the 1.6-litre diesel Greenline II, which emits 114g/km of CO2, resulting in very cheap road tax. Not bad for a huge estate car.

Other models in the range perform reasonably well for their sizes, though the V6 emits 237g/km.

The diesels return impressive fuel economy, with up to 64mpg on offer, while the 1.4-litre is the most economical petrol – you can expect 42mpg in everyday driving.

You shouldn’t need to worry about Skoda Superb Estate reliability.

Previous generation Superb owners reported enviable reliability records and there were few major problems reported.

The excellent build quality of this model bodes well for the future and uses some existing technology from other models from within the Volkswagen Group, of which Skoda is part of.
