Superb is a Super
Version Reviewed: Superb Elegance TSI AT Purchased As:New Familiarity : It's my mate since ages .
Fuel Economy : 12 kpl Good : Extremely spacious, comfortable, highly refined
Bad : Poor service If we talk about the brand skoda .... am speechless to talk about its features, biggest quality is safety . person is totally safe in the car. The engine will automatically off while accident. The single key of superb is having at least 25 features. boot lid of superb will not close if forget the key inside it. and the special thing is that if a person forgets the key at home and through mobile another person can be able to help the other by pressing the button of a key through cell. luxurious feel as like Mercedes, BMW Audi etc. let me share you my personal experience. I am a tall boy and it is comfortable for me sit properly even with any adjustment. good leg space and head room. automatic climatic control air condition. Full Review Skoda Superb. Exterior Understated styling, not the 'in-your-face' Jarring appeal, very functional exterior features that don't come standard even with a Merc or a Beamer. Not overly aerodynamic since you'll begin to feel the wind resistance drag over 200 kmph. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) This is the best part of the car, you'll probably get similar interiors in cars over three times the price. High-quality leather seats, wide and comfortable, 4 axis electrically/ automatic adjustable seats (front), the rear has acres of room that tempt you to use a chauffer. You can feel the quality just sitting in one - truly superb! Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Highly refined engine, throws out 160 HP of power, meshed with an awesome DSG gearbox (7 speed), you could out run any street car in a flash. Thanks to the dual clutch mechanism you barely notice the up-shifts. Downshifts are mindblowing when you need more power to overtake/ outrun someone on the road. Though this looks like a relaxed banker's car meant to be chauffered around, it can suddenly transform into a driver's car and drag race anyone around. Word of advice, go for petrol. It's silky smooth and more powerful. Mileage in the city is an awesome 10, and the highways on an average of 16 if driven well. Moreover, you'll not have a care in the world for fuel economy once you are inside the lap of luxury it has to offer - truly Superb! Moreover, petrol fuel costs almost the same as diesel. And it's expected to come down. All that you gain out of the difference in fuel cost is lost in advance with the difference in the models. Ride Quality & Handling Ride quality is comparable with the 5 series or the E class, definitely miles ahead of their smaller siblings. Automatic DSG gearbox has the option of regular and sports modes, and a manual mode. Paddle shifters add to the fun while racing - all standard equipment. The only downside being slightly higher body roll around high-speed corners (trust me you'll not care). Not to worry, ESP comes standard and handy if you lose the corner anyway. Final Words The total hardware package is value for money, no doubts on that. Comes with problems associated with any big car - mainly with the electronics since they are not very tuned for Indian conditions. Safety comes standard with 8 airbags, ESP, EBD, et all. Each part is meticulously crafted to offer you a fulfilling package. Subsequently bought a 3 series for the wife and later a C class for myself, can't help imagining if I was taken for a sucker for having paid a high premium for lesser comfort and features! I still have the Superb, though. I've driven it for over 70,000 km and 6 years now (2009 model), and puts a smile on my face everytime I get into the car. Don't fall for catalog features list of other cars; they are available in a Nano too these days. Areas of improvement The servicing of these beasts seem to be the greatest challenge if you are not technically sound to grossly figure identifying the trouble yourself. The service advisors/ technicians are not really qualified/ sound enough handling high-end cars since most Indian companies don't really focus on this aspect and invest in training of quality personnel. There's also the perennial problem of corruption among mechanics of the 'authorized' service centers, coupled with a lack of technical knowledge, make you feel miserable for your purchase. But that should not turn you off, since this is a common problem with any big car in India today.
