Shell V-Power: Fuelling your passions
Thursday 8th June


What is it like to drive?

Discounting that 4WD, 276bhp oddity (which literally all buyers will) the Superb isn't really about on-the-doorhandles cornering. But if you do choose to unleash your inner Stig, then you'll find that the Superb gets round corners without trouble, only belying its sheer length in the fastest, tightest bends. Too much enthusiasm reveals plenty of tyre squeal, but generally it's a tidy steer.

Most of the time, though, you'll be cruising motorways, which the Superb manages with panache. Though it can't quite match the (admittedly rather pricier) Mercedes S-Class for unruffled, near-silent progress, the Superb does a fair impression of a top-drawer German limo, wafting along serenely and generally making a decent fist of keeping the outside world at bay. It's a car built to devour high-mileage trips.
