Comfortable, lots of legroom in the back
Fixed rear seat limits practicality, Skoda badge prejudice
Skoda's big car is big on space and big on value. It's an easy car to recommend as it's surprisingly cheap to buy used, has as much rear legroom as a Mercedes-Benz S-Class and is packed with equipment that would be optional on most other cars. Plus there are great engines (including punchy diesels), it's good to drive and has a thoughtfully designed interior (some models even have an umbrella concealed in the door).
The only major downside is that it's a traditional saloon with fixed back seats, so it isn't especially practical, even though it has a large boot.
