Skoda Superb Estate - Best estate cars

The Superb Estate is even more versatile than the hatchback on which it's based

The Skoda Superb Estate is a great estate car choice. Gone is the dowdy design of the previous model, replaced with sharp creases and a lower, wider body - yet the car is cheaper than all of its main rivals.

There's a wide engine choice, starting with a 1.5-litre TSI petrol, although we'd recommend either the 2.0 TDI diesel engine with 148bhp, or the 1.4-litre iV plug-in hybrid model delivering 215bhp.

As with the last car, the main selling point of the Skoda Superb Estate is its unrivalled practicality. The boot has grown from the previous model and now provides a cavernous 660-litre load area, or 1,950 litres with the seats down. That's on a level with cars like the Mercedes E-Class Estate

For rear passengers, luxury is the order of the day - the Skoda Superb provides more rear legroom than every car across the VW Group, bar the long-wheelbase Audi A8. It's wider than the previous car too, making it a better choice for carrying three abreast.

If there's any criticism, it's that the interior design is a bit plain - and of course, the sheer size of the Superb Estate can make it tricky to park.
