Used Skoda Superb for sale
Flagship of the Skoda brand, the Superb is a large executive car that provides a premium feel at an affordable price tag. Perfect for long business trips or ferrying the family around, all bases are covered by this spacious vehicle.
Since the Volkswagen group's takeover of the Czech brand many moons ago, Skoda have been churning out a number of brilliant cars, and the Superb follows suit. At such great value for money, there are plenty of excellent examples within the used car market and a number of reasons why they're a 'superb' option, such as:
- High level of technology as standard
- Strong and dependable engines
- Sleek exterior styling
- Uber-practical hatchback and estate bodystyles
Discover the benefits of the Skoda Superb in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
With the Superb, it's clear that Skoda have put a focus on comfort and refinement over performance and thrills. There's three driving modes to choose from: 'Comfort' mode sacrifices performance, 'Sport' mode sacrifices comfort, and 'Normal' mode is a nice balance between the two for a daily drive.
A number of petrol engines are available with differing amounts of power ranging from 148 to 276bhp. Thrill seekers may opt for the high-powered variants, which can catapult you from 0 to 62mph in 5.5 seconds. If you don't fancy something quite as powerful, Skoda's first petrol plug-in hybrid is also on offer.
Diesel engines are also obtainable, in the form of either a 1.6 or a 2.0-litre TDI block, which are even more economical and comfortable when covering long distance than their petrol counterparts.
Practicality and Running Costs
'Huge' is the most fitting word to describe the Skoda Superb's boot space, offering a healthy 625 litres with the rear seats in place, increasing to 1,760 litres when folded down - expect an extra 250 litres, or so, if you opt for the estate bodystyle.
Cabin space is impressive, with plenty of legroom available for even the tallest of passengers to have a stretch. The Superb also has good towing capabilities, all models are able to pull at least 1,300kg of braked cargo, but having a diesel or four-wheel drive example provides the most pulling power.
Entry-level and lower-powered versions are the most cost-effective when it comes to insurance, starting at group 12 (out of 50), rising up to a maximum of 31 if you want more power. Your local Evans Halshaw dealership is well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Executive cars are known for coming with a plethora of kit and Skoda haven't cut corners with the Superb. The range starts with the SE, which gives the driver front and rear parking sensors, Smartlink+ (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and adaptive cruise control.
Higher specifications such as the SE L offer more luxury, making the already-comfortable interior a bit more special. Leather seats, larger-screened satellite navigation systems and electronically operated boot lids can be found across used car examples.
Being Skoda's most technologically advanced vehicle, an extensive list of safety equipment helps the Superb earn the full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, including:
- Lane assist system
- Blind-spot assist
- Hill-hold control
- Driver fatigue monitor
Is the Skoda Superb right for me?
The Skoda Superb can do it all, thanks to a spacious cabin, comfortable interior design, and wide range of engine choice. You can be confident this executive car will get you and the family from A to B in a safe manner thanks to a list of useful gadgets to assist the driver.
More premium alternatives are available on the used car market, such as the usual German suspects - the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3 Series - offering higher quality interior materials and a prestige status symbol. The futuristically-styled Peugeot 508 is another great contender if you're looking for something a little different.
But with the Superb, Skoda offer upper-echelon standards at a more affordable price than many other executive cars on the used car market.
