No pun needed: the Skoda Superb is excellent. Every inch an Audi A6 rival. Honest

Good stuff

Skoda's made an already excellent car even better. Truly desirable

Bad stuff

It's a car for keen drivers to be driven in

Overview

What is it?

The Skoda Superb, the third generation of Skoda's giant, range-topping saloon, now more giant and range-topping than ever. Spun off the VW Group's ubiquitous MQB platform, the Superb is 3cm longer and 5cm wider that its not-very-small predecessor, with more space inside. Even more so if you opt for the ginormous Skoda Superb Estate.

Impressively, although it may be larger, it's also lighter too, having shed a hefty 75kg (that's an adult passenger's worth of mass). Engines are mostly from the VW Group's Sensible Range, with four-cylinder turbodiesels ranging from 118bhp to 187bhp, or petrols spanning from 123bhp to 217bhp. However, there's a wildcard in the line-up: a four-wheel drive Superb with the 276bhp 2.0 TSI from the Leon Cupra ST.

What's the verdict?

Bigger and better than ever, the Superb offers a whole lot of car for the cash.
