2009 Skoda Superb 1 | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

This largest and most luxurious model line is proud of its state-of-the-art technology, original-design, user-friendly comfort and a broad assortment of added equipment, along with a choice of two modern petrol engines. Its foremost advantage, however, is space. It’s extremely comfortable interior, both for passengers in the front and rear seats, is right up there with the space available in vehicles recognized for their luxury, rather than their affordability.

Modern Skoda cars have won a host of awards and top ratings in safety tests. Now that their designers have come up with some affordable luxury, they offer a viable alternative to other European brands with a more up-market reputation.

The features of the Classic version include clear-optics headlights, fog lights and manually-controlled air-conditioning or electrical control on all windows.

The Superb stands out thanks to numerous creative and original solutions.

Take the footboard, for example, or the front passenger seat whose back support can be folded in the middle, so that the rear seat passenger to make himself comfortable and stretch his legs, foldable elbow support between the rear seats, with storage space in it, beverage holder, and a case for a SkiSack or WetCase, special storage space in rear doors, where you can put your wet umbrella without any problem, because its design has a clever, built-in drain.

For the standard version, the Classic comes with a 1.8 T/150 bhp engine, with automatic transmission. For those who want the go with the show would do well to have a closer look at the bigger 2.8-litre V6 powerplant which is a willing performer, putting some bigger-engined cars to shame in the driveability department.
