Skoda Superb - best family cars
It's a cliché, but the spacious and stylish Superb really does live up to its name
The Skoda Superb is one of the best family cars on sale. While it shares much of its platform with the smaller Octavia, its large dimensions mean there's acres of space inside, especially in the back seats and boot.
Unlike its awkward looking predecessor, the Superb is a sharp looking hatchback. Its sporty lines and sharp nose look especially smart in top-spec trims, while all models get an upmarket interior that matches parent firm Volkswagen for quality. But it's the amount of kit and space on offer that really gets the Skoda noticed.
Rear passengers are treated to limousine levels of legroom and the gigantic boot swallows 625 litres of luggage (if that's not enough, the Estate is even bigger). Mid-range SE trim covers all of the essentials, but SE L Executive trim is comprehensively equipped, with heated leather seats, climate control, an electric bootlid and xenon headlamps.
