Skoda Superb Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

You have to be pretty confident about your product before you decide to call it ‘Superb’, don’t you? Nearly after a decade and a half since we first saw the big Czech, it’s back in an all-new avatar. Its predecessor cemented Skoda’s premium appeal, offering quality, luxury and unparalleled space for the money. The new one promises to be better than ever before. Well, is it?

Pros
  • Phenomenal amount of rear-seat legroom. One can sit cross-legged with ease.
  • Quality of plastics and leather used in the cabin is top class. Leaves very little room for complaint.
  • Pliant suspension gobbles up surface irregularities.
  • Super-smooth 7-speed DSG automatic is a joy to use.
  • Loaded with features - touchscreen audio system, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control, sunroof, 8 airbags etc.
Cons
  • The diesel engine gets slightly vocal on the move. Dampens the premium experience.
  • No hybrid variant on offer - both the Camry and the Accord offer hybrid tech.

Stand Out Features

  • Only one in its class to offer petrol as well as diesel powertrain options.

CarDekho Verdict

The third-gen Skoda Superb simply approves its old recipe of space, pace and grace. There’s practically nothing to dislike about the car, save for a slightly gruff engine note. There’s enough space for five occupants, and the massive 625-litre boot will swallow their luggage whole as well.

"More than anything, it is phenomenal value-for-money."

The plethora of tech is enough to keep a millennial busy, and the engines feel in their element as well. If you have close to Rs 35 lakh to spend on car and are looking at entry-level luxury cars such as the Mercedes-Benz CLA or the Audi A3, we recommend you take a look at the Superb.
