If you’re looking for a large estate car that combines value for money, quality and the most up-to-date tech, you’re going to have to go a long way to beat the Skoda Superb. This full-sized family car has been around since 2015, but thanks to a facelift in 2018 and the 2020 introduction of a plug-in hybrid version known as the iV, it’s still a serious choice in this market sector.

If you want big, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Its enormity ensures it can be regarded as a legitimate rival to the vast Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate. Even though this and the Volvo V90 are far more expensive. Indeed, pricing is better value than the smaller Volkswagen Passat Estate to which the Superb is related.

As with the Skoda Superb hatchback, the Superb estate’s cabin is roomier than most other cars of its size. It’s truly vast with limo-like space in the rear seats, and since the facelift, the front of the cabin feels suitably upmarket too. Small details like the way the large infotainment screen fits in with the dashboard just seem to be more cohesive than VW’s Passat.

Traditionally, the vast majority of Skoda Superb Estate customers have opted for one of the economical diesels, particularly where maximising efficiency across higher mileages is the primary consideration. But in line with the industry norm, diesel sales are dropping in favour of the plug-in hybrid.

The range kicks off with an efficient 120hp 1.6-litre TDI, but our pick would be the 150hp 2.0-litre TDI, the most popular model. There’s a 190hp available as well, but the differences in most driving situations are hard to pick up on. You do get a choice of manual and DSG automatic transmissions, as well as the option of four-wheel drive on higher-output cars.

Although you can’t buy a Skoda Superb Estate for the bargain cash price it once was, it’s still usefully cheaper than the Volkswagen Passat it’s so closely related to. It’s also well equipped for your money. Food for thought if you’re considering a more premium rival.

However, if you are in the market, know that an all-new Skoda Superb Estate is likely to be on sale in the UK in 2024.
