Skoda had to Superb already very much legroom in the offer, the Superb Combi is the immense trunk.

That Skoda is now part of the Volkswagen group is certainly known to everyone, as a brand to jump into a large group, you'd better come up with a unique selling point. For its flagship Skoda is the way of space and reliability into storage, with an especially large amount of legroom in the rear as remarkable fact. In the sedan was only the unique rear, but the Superb Combi is also the case immensely. His broad dimensions, the Superb Combi is 4.8 meters long, 1.8 meters wide and 1.5 meters high, the car has a lot of luggage. Standard 633 liter can lose stuff in the suitcase, folding down the rear than you can carry up to 1865 liters. For that extra user-friendly systems provide convenient Skoda to put your luggage down. Question of the luggage is not the immense bagegeruim to spin around.

That Skoda is part of the Volkswagen Group brands, we also at the interior of the Superb Combi. The whole looks good, feels good and is very solid finish. The navigation system gets to the Skoda name into Columbus, but we saw this earlier in the Golf GTD RNS 510 as he goes through life. This navigation system is one of the best country in cars, the ease by the combination of a touchscreen with clear buttons and unsurpassed visuals are very clever and clear. The interior of the Elegance version is finished with a wood trim and the Superb Combi gives a rather classic look.
Furthermore, the less accessible areas highlighted by a cheaper material produced, but it does not really bother. If you enjoy driving a lot of compartments within reach, simple controls on the steering wheel and a cooled glove box for your drink to make fresh.

Where the front Superb Combi already excels in usability and ergonomics than Skoda does have a little something back there. The amount of legroom that the Superb Combi provides is huge, even a basketball player can not feel stuffy. The main room is huge with the high roofline. The amount of legroom that the Superb Combi offers is only comparable to what one BMW 7-Series or Mercedes S-Class can offer. In order to further inflame feelings limousine Skoda rear also provides an information that both the hours when the outside temperature reading can be. If you can last in the left rear indeed lost your umbrella, all in Rolls-Royce style.

Superb Combi tested by us, the middle petrol engine under the bonnet, the 1.8 TSI with 160 hp. This unit feels very smooth and responds very directly to the instructions of the accelerator. That the engine quite what his personal qualifications can you read all the zero to one hundred time is 8.6 seconds and top speed at 220 km / h remains stabbing. Yet it is especially the comfortable nature of this engine that appealed to us, know that you can sue 160 horses gives you a calm feeling that you are not required to lower the pitcher to get out. The wallet is anyway not wise to the 1.8 TSI to the limit to drive, what we mean by a driving test on a consumption of 9.3 litres/100 km ended up with a wild driving style that can quickly add up to 11 litres/100 km . These values are not uncommon but is much higher than the 7.2 litres/100 km specify which Skoda.

Skoda Standard combines the 1.8 TSI with a manual zesbak that very quickly turns and certainly managed to seduce us. Who needs help eco-driving indicator, the handy link in the onboard computer consulting. Optional link Skoda However, the 1.8 TSI to a seven-speed DSG automatic so the sprint time by 0.1 second and improve consumption decreases in parallel with 0.1 litres/100 km. In addition you can optionally choose four-wheel drive, by default, ie the front wheels driven. Not that we needed seemed so high, the Superb Combi was even in the cold winter weather of recent weeks are rarely affected by loss of traction. Only when abrupt acceleration may begin summer tires spinning on the ground, but given the temperatures around the freezing point that seemed only natural.

The entry for the Superb Combi engines are the 1.4 TSI with 125 hp and the 1.9 TDI with 105 hp, but these seem to us both something to light the 1500 kilogram Superb Combi continue to draw. Belgium provides land for diesel Skoda still two 2.0 TDI engines with 140 or 170 hp. The choice for one of these engines seems perfect for them many times to kilometers. The average consumption is 5.9 litres/100 km in the 170 hp version in any case much lower than the 1.8 TSI. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h with the 2.0 TDI 170 bhp by in 8.9 seconds. The topmotor is a 3.6 FSI petrol V6 with 260 hp, four-wheel drive and a standard six-speed DSG automatic. With the 3.6 FSI Combi Superb sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.5 seconds and can dial in the electronic speed limit of 250 km / h hang.

Superb Combi what so pleasant is its comfortable handling, which seems to find nice balance between comfort and sportiness. Thus the suspension filters bumps effortlessly on the road but can Superb Combi in a relatively tight twisty trail be sent. Do not expect hyper dynamic steering response, the Superb excels because like the Volkswagen Passat from his pleasant compromise. For the French way of traffic islands take the Superb not seem appropriate, but despite the 18 "wheels on our test model did we never go back to our attack. The whole closes with the excellent noise then effortlessly with the character of the limousine Superb Combi.

You already have a Skoda Superb Combi from 24,000 euro, but then you make it with the 1.9 TDI with 105 hp in the Classic version. The model we tested was there from 25,230 euros, for the Elegance trim level are you off but at least 30,820 euros. On top of that you have a choice Elegance package containing the Columbus GPS system, a parking system, heated front and rear seats, rear sun blinds and carpets where you would put 1550 euro counts down. A bargain. With additional options such as Cargo Platform Concept (190 euros), the electrical box (450 euros) and 18 "alloy wheels (350 euro) clocks we are heading for 33,855 euros. With this pricing, we dare to say that the Skoda Superb Combi in the segment of the Breaks price / quality is currently the best choice. The 2.0 TDI with 140 hp performance Elegance is from 32,020 euros. It is a shame that Skoda are not tax-friendly version with 136 horsepower is available, that would be 400 euros soon IPI care.

The Skoda Superb Combi seems the best choice for people who do not succumb to a badge. Fear threshold would not really exist in this Skoda Superb Combi, which is at least as it offers space and comfort as an Audi A6 Avant but goes on the counter for the price of an Audi A4 Avant. It is unfortunate that no tax friendly motorisaties available, a 2.0 TDI with 136 hp would be a welcome addition to a car that gets its charm from functionality.
