Described by Auto Express as “a revelation”, the elegant ŠKODA Superb provides an abundance of interior space – including a vast boot – and plenty of safety technology. This widely acclaimed hatchback is available in S, SE, SE L Executive and Laurin & Klement trim lines.
Sleek and crisply fashioned, the Superb boasts a number of eye-catching fixtures, including stylish and lightweight 16-inch alloy wheels that are protected by anti-theft bolts. The vehicle sports several body-coloured features too, such as a bumper that bisects a smart-looking radiator grille, as well as door handles and side-view mirrors. The latter are electrically adjustable and heated and feature integrated indicators. Further standard illumination includes daytime running lights, front fog lamps and LED tail lights.
The ŠKODA Superb provides a limousine-like ride for up to five passengers, with plenty of head and legroom in its well-appointed cabin. Front-row travellers are also treated to height-adjustable seating, and the driver can get to grips with a three-spoke leather steering wheel that also offers rake-and-reach adjustability. Other standard features include power-operated front and rear windows and air conditioning, each helping to regulate the cabin’s climate. Smart stowage provision includes an illuminated and refrigerated glove compartment and a removable parcel shelf.
The vehicle features a 625-litre boot space, which is larger than that offered by the Volkswagen Passat or Ford Mondeo. Even better, cargo capacity can be increased to 1,760 litres when rear seats are folded – and a removable LED flashlight is included too.
The ŠKODA Superb is powered by a 1.4-litre 123bhp petrol engine, which is fitted as standard. Hooked to a six-speed manual gearbox, this delivers up to 52.3mpg and a 125g/km CO2 emissions figure. A 1.6-litre diesel GreenLine unit (also available with entry-level S grades) produces 118bhp, and returns as much as 76.4mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 96g/km.
Helping to keep everyone on board entertained is an eight-speaker sound system (including DAB radio and an FM/AM radio). This can be operated using steering wheel-mounted controls. Bluetooth connectivity, USB, SD and AUX inputs and MP3 compatibility are featured too, enabling a wide range of audio-enjoying opportunities.
The ŠKODA Superb has been rated a maximum five-star crash-test score by Euro NCAP. The vehicle includes all the safety features you might expect, such as multiple airbags, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and childproof door locks. Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Brakes and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are included too, as is XDS+, a Cross Differential System. XDS+ helps to minimise understeer by monitoring data that is produced by sensors connected to each wheel.
