The Skoda Superb: Some pros and cons

The Skoda Superb is a D-E segment car or a luxury large family vehicle first released by the Czech car manufacturer in 1934. The original Superb was in production until 1949 and was later on revived in 2001 with a fresh, modern version. The first-generation modern model ran until 2008, making way for the second-generation Superb in 2009 which is still in production today. Ditching the platform its older brother followed, the second-generation Superb boasts of not only being the largest but the most luxurious as well of all vehicles in Skoda’s lineup. In the simplest of words, the Skoda Superb translates to German craftsmanship with Czech pricing.

Pros

The Skoda Superb is a beautiful car, imposing to a certain degree as it ignores design trends. Pleasing details are more visible with higher-end models, such as side windows framed by metal and the optional bi-xenon headlamps, while clever engineering design is showcased in the Twindoor, a mechanism that utilizes electronic locking hinges between the rear window and bootlid. The mechanism is so seamless that you won’t even see the seal from the outside, thereby betraying the fact that the Superb can be a hatchback.

It’s typical for modern Skoda models to feature classy cabins but others usually show subtle hints at efforts to economize. This is not seen with the Superb though, as proven by the squeezable padding, for instance, that extends to surround the glove compartment and surrounding areas. If you get the Elegance version, you can expect leather trimming, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, dual-zone air conditioning, and a touchscreen stereo fitted with a six-disc CD changer. For wet days, the Superb smartly comes with an umbrella compartment with a drainage system by the left rear door.

The Superb is also spacious inside, providing rear passengers with a lot of foot room with a high-mounted seat that also aids in offering a good view facing front. Spaciousness also extends to the boot space that appears to be big enough to accommodate a small wardrobe.

The Skoda Superb cruises quietly, with a soothing purr coming from engine, which becomes refined once you’ve driven a certain distance. DSG transmission offers a great gearbox to use, most especially if you’re on the motorway a lot, but there’s also still enough precision in the standard gearbox should you use to go with a base model.

Cons

While the Twindoor is an amazing piece of work, neat and seamless and not at all revealing that it can open in the way it was designed, the mechanism is heavy and adds weight to the car. While there are other components to be considered, the Twindoor contributes to put the Skoda Superb at 1,512kg.

There are petrol and diesel engines to choose from so you can pick out what will suit your needs best. However, the top of the range is only available on petrol while auto double-clutch ‘DSG’ transmission is not offered on base petrol and diesel engine options.

Going for a diesel engine may make performance suffer a bit in terms of acceleration but it is nothing unpleasant to deal with. But if you choose the Greenline diesel model in favor of fuel economy, expect deal with paltry overtaking power.
