The Skoda Superb, in my mind, has always been the thinking man’s sedan. The build quality is outstanding; it’s incredibly spacious and absolutely incredible to drive! You could spend a little more and have an entry level German luxury sedan and cram yourself into the backseat with your belief that everybody thinks you’re cool, or you could invest the deficit and have a Superb. Sans the badging then, the Superb is probably the same if not better in every sense. This Superb gets a bit of a sprucing up on the cosmetic front, but the headlines focus on the new 2.0-litre TSI motor that replaces the 1.8 TSI. Additionaly there is no diesel option in the lineup in sync with the VW Group’s dramatic departure from diesels. There are two trims on offer, the driver-focused Sportline and the luxury oriented L&K (Laurin & Klement), though they are mostly separated by minor tweaks.
