For families and drivers racking up big mileages alike the Superb Estate is supremely comfortable. It’s a big car and the steering is a bit numb but it feels stable and secure in corners and doesn’t have that top-heavy wallow of high-riding crossovers. It’s pretty quiet on the move, too, with most exterior noises kept at bay. To top things off, the driving position is comfortable and has bags of adjustment, while your visibility is clear in all directions, again a point in its favour compared with SUVs of equivalent size.
The Superb treats its passengers just as generously too, especially in the rear. There’s as much rear legroom as in most luxury limousines, and headroom isn’t in short supply, either. Two tall adults will be able to stretch out, and three will be able to travel back there in reasonable comfort. The boot
is quite simply enormous and for those who prefer the convenience of driving to their summer holiday over flying it’s got all the space you need. It’s just a shame there’s no seven-seat option, though if you like the way Skoda does things you can stay within the family and have that in the Kodiaq
Space aside, the Superb has plenty of clever little features to make your life easier, from velcro dividers in the boot to stop small items rolling around, to a removable boot light that can act as a torch. Oh, and the front doors each have an umbrella stored in them. Great stuff.
