Cheaper Superbs represent good bargains for buyers but the more costly models offer even better value. They are loaded down with kit and luxurious creature comforts. Many have suggested that Skoda’s build quality has surpassed that of Volkswagen. The Superb delivers an extra smooth ride. This is facilitated by its long wheelbase and excellent suspension settings. It is not sporty or racy, but for motorway comfort it is unbeatable. There are some prestigious rivals out there that deliver comparable quality and results, but it’s important to know that the price is almost double of what buyers will pay for the Superb.
The Superb has a low asking price, service charges, and insurance rates. The V6 option will be the only one that doesn’t give you decent fuel economy. Resale value will be a bit lower than you might hope.The cabin is large and occupants will have ample room to move about the cabin. The boot generously sized and will accommodate a days shopping easily, though oddly shaped items may be difficult to load. The gauges are all easy to read. Complementing the logical placement, are lights that illuminate the dash. This is helpful when embarking on long journeys as it makes the cabin more comfortable and relaxing. The dials and knobs are functional and don’t clutter the fascia. The cabin offers plenty of head and legroom. Front passengers will fare slightly better than those in the rear as far as legroom is concerned, but this shouldn’t be a problem.

The seats don’t sit too low, so reaching into them is unnecessary. The boot’s lid opens wide, allowing for larger items to be loaded without much fuss.

The car’s long wheelbases provide comfort and stability. The Superb performs best cruising along on smooth surfaces. The automatic gearbox is available with both V6 engines, but the standard manual works well too. Acceleration is modest due to the car’s weight. A Superb could make a practical family car. It could be used for many family oriented tasks. It would provide adequate family space, but there are probably more logical family cars available.The Superb would not make a good first car. It is way too big and wouldn’t be trendy enough for most young drivers. There are definitely better first cars available. The Superb is one of the best quality cars on the market. Skoda is better known for their smaller cars, and many buyers may not be ready to accept the firm as a producer of larger vehicles. The Superb is just as the name implies, a superb vehicle to drive.
