The Top Gear car review:Skoda Superb
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It’s customary in reviews of big cars to note that there’s ‘room for one six-footer behind another’, but in the Superb you could squeeze another in the rear-seat footwell for good measure. It’s truly cavernous inside - feeling far airier than even a Vauxhall Insignia or its ilk - while the boot is commensurately vast too. Budget enough for options-list extravagance and you can turn your Superb into a proper upmarket limo, Skoda offering everything from adaptive damping to an in-car telly and park assist. Best of all, you’ll discover (in higher-spec Superbs at least) an umbrella cunningly stowed within each of the front door, a feature only otherwise found on Rolls-Royces. Because this is, um, the Rolls-Royce of supersized family saloons.
