Skoda Superb is what it says Superb
SKODA SUPERB 1.9 TDI PD 100 Classic 4dr (Review date: 23rd March '12)
I have a Superb. Initally I went looking for a Toyota Avensis, however I'm pleased I didn't find one.
The Superb has a large boot and plenty of room in the back, perfect for a young family. The pram can easily fit in the boot and space in the rear compartment is perfectly suited for putting the baby seats in and still having the space for the baby bags on the floor.
On long journeys it is very economical and very comfortable.
I left London once with a full tank and when I arrived in Co. Donegal, Ireland I still had half a tank left. It is very quick to respond when required.
The only fault I have had to deal with is the replacement of 2 drive shafts after over 90k miles.
When I go looking for my next car it will definately be a Skoda again and perhaps the new Superb.
Spacious and good to drive
SKODA SUPERB 1.9 TDI PD 130 Comfort 4dr Tip Auto (Review date: 20th January '12)
Love my skoda, first time for me driving an automatic car. Its spacious and comfortable. I drive roughly 300 miles per week and spend roughly 2 hours per day in my car. The reverse parking is great for me. It costs me £75.00 a week diesel, however considering the miles I drive I still think my car is economical. Sometimes when I am overtaking I think my car is sluggish and would love it to have more power.One thing I do really like is the cruise control for long journeys on the motorway, have to stay focused when using it. Looking at the pro's I would say its very comfortable to drive, reliable and easy to maintain and run.
The cons would be it is quite big to park, although the parking sensors are are a great help.
Would recommend this car and do think Skoda is a very reliable make of car.
SKODA SUPERB 1.9 TDI PD 130 Elegance 4dr Tip Auto (Review date: 20th January '12)
I used to own Volvo's but after a few problems with an S80 I needed a quick fill in car and came across a cheapish Superb which I bought.
What a surprise the car was.
Inside the rear seat had masses of room even with the front seats fully back
The car controls were in the right place and at night they were all subtely lit including the gearstick which has an LED light shining down from above the windscreen to iluminate it
The boot is massive.
The TDi engineis as with all VW is responsive and very very economical.
It is not a sportscar and does not drive like one but if you want to drive from Germany to the UK and get out as fresh as you felt when you got in this is the car for you.
I am now on my second Superb having given my first to my daughter.
Very Very reliable over 100,000 on my first Superb no faults and still going
72,000 on my second no faults and still going
SKODA SUPERB 2.5 V6 TDI 160 Elegance 4dr Tip Auto (Review date: 31st October '11)
SKODA SUPERB 2.0 TDI PD 140 Elegance 4dr (Review date: 29th May '11)
A VAG car better built than VW Audi. Longer leg room than a Passat in rear. Anything in a Passat is on board this car, instruments, controls, all fittings, but when new it was £21,000 compared with circa £24k for a Passat without all the equipment and extras that the Superb Elegance has.
The performance and acceleration is very good for a diesel, effortless motoring on motorways and economical. The ride is that of a large car with all the comfort that goes with it despite having sports suspension. Services are minimal with no set time, car chooses when! This can be as high as 20,000 miles between services.
It's a comfortable car in traffic jams, an important feature nowdays!
I've had 8 Audis and 4 Skodas and I rate this the best of all of them yet.
Dealership back-up in my area is also excellent, attitude and response excellent.
SKODA SUPERB 2.5 V6 TDI 160 Elegance 4dr Tip Auto (Review date: 22nd April '11)
IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE OWNING A SKODA SUPERB. I'D SAY THAT FOR US, THE BIGGEST BENEFIT HAS BEEN THE SPACE INSIDE - IT IS HUGE!! YOU CAN EASILY TAKE A LONG JOURNEY WITH 4 OR 5 ADULTS. THE V6 ENGINE IS LOVELY AND HAS BEEN MOST RELIABLE. OVERALL IT HAS BEEN THE BEST CAR I'VE OWNED. ITS A SHAME IT'S SO UGLY!!
Superb TDI 140. Nice but Boring
SKODA SUPERB 2.0 TDI PD 140 Classic 4dr (Review date: 11th April '11)
The superb is a fantastic workhorse and family car.
Motorway driving is effortless and comfortable even after a couple hundred miles without a stop. The boot is big enough to fit my bike in without having to fold the seats down, the back seats have loads of leg room even if you are well over 6 foot tall. Basically its massive.
Unfortunately the skoda feels massive when cornering. It may feel rock solid on the straights but you lose all confidence in it on tight, twisting roads because it feels unsteady as it wallows through corners with its soft suspension set up for comfort rather than fun. After a few weeks of ownership i got used to the strange handling and realised that there was more grip than i thought but the superb was never going to be a drivers car.
The superb with the 140 diesel has plenty of torque making it quick enough for everyday driving and delivering 40-50mpg depending on driving style and type of journey. I think that is impressive for a huge car. 80 odd quid to fill the tank but it'l go 500-600 miles at a time.
Our superb was in the family from new and after 5 years and 110,000 miles nothing notable went wrong and was still mechanically perfect when it was sold last month. Servicing can be pricey especially at a dealer so stick to a decent independant, preferably specialising in cars within the VW group.
Cant remember exactly how much but tax and insurance wasn't expensive.
If your not bothered by the image (or lack of it) and are unlikely to race around the back lanes. Then the skoda superb is a solid, spacious, reliable and comfortable option to seriously consider.
ps. the 140 diesel is the probably the best choice of engines
