2016 Skoda Superb Wagon
The Superb is a ludicrously large family wagon that also offers an exhaustive list of features and creature comforts, a four-cylinder turbo engine from one of the world’s most celebrated hot hatches, while looking genuinely sporty from any angle.
It’s a tough ask for any manufacturer, even prestige brands and to do so means Skoda has, what I consider, a best-in-class effort on its hands.
If you thought our 206TSI wagon looked big on the outside, cabin and boot space will leave you gobsmacked. The previous generation was hardly lacking in this department, but this latest iteration is bigger in almost every dimension. Rear-seat legroom boarders on limo spec, while boot space grows by 60 litres to an impressive 660 for the wagon (625 for the sedan).
Folding the rear seats frees up a staggering 1950 litres of load space in the wagon and 1760 litres for the sedan. Either way, this is considerably more space than the current Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon (1625 litres) and still more than you’ll find in many large SUVs.
