Are you a badge snob? No? Good. Because have we got something special for you. To our eyes, Skoda’s big saloon – the Superb – is an utter bargain as a used car. This one comes courtesy of our friends at the Goytre Car Company, Pontypool, Monmouthshire.
If you’re not familiar with the Superb (and you may not be: it’s not by any means one you’ll see on every street) in size it’s closely resemble Volkswagen’s Passat but is a touch longer. As a result the cabin is simply huge and is notably good for those sat in the rear, where leg- and head-room is nothing short of magnificent. It also has a good-sized boot.
This is a soft-riding car, too: that and the distance between its front wheels and rear keeps everyone comfortable, while standard-fit climate-controlled air con ensures that the cabin is cosy. This one is the mid-range model, the Comfort, so you also get soft-faced velour seats, an eight-speaker music system that includes a CD autochanger and nice touches such as puddle lights to help you step out from the car at night. It also comes with a factory-fit alarm – although, being a Skoda, we’d not imagine it being an obvious target for crime.
And this one’s diesel engine makes it an utterly sensible prospect. This one 1.9 PD unit also appears in Volkswagens, Audis and Seats. With correct servicing it is tough and long lasting. This car promises a service history, so its 109,000 recorded miles means the engine is good for a long while yet. Its cambelt should have been changed every four years, so we’d consider that as an early job to be done, for peace of mind’s sake.
You won’t turn heads in this car and it’ll never make you the envy of your friends. No matter. What it will do is provide you with big-car comforts at a very modest price. And we strongly like the idea of that.
