Skoda Superb is Luxurious Used Bargain

The Skoda Superb saloon is an excellent used purchase for those who love beans on toast.

The Skoda Superb saloon is an excellent used purchase for those who love beans on toast. This luxurious leviathan, much like the aforementioned meal, is affordable and unpretentious yet surprisingly satisfying for those who look beyond its dreary image.

The second generation Superb was introduced in 2008 and shares various components with the Volkswagen Passat. There is a choice of five engines including two diesels, but the most enthralling unit is the 3.6-litre V6. This top of the range model produces 256bhp, hits 60mph in 6.4 seconds, and reaches a maximum speed of 155mph.

Despite these impressive performance figures the Superb is not a sports car. Whereas the handling is perfectly composed and confident, this sensible used purchase is essentially a comfortable long distance cruiser. It is a vehicle for those 'in the know' who appreciate discrete quality and can disregard the unfashionable badge. Standard equipment includes stability control, front fog lights, and a radio/CD player. Top of the range Elegance models feature touch-screen satellite navigation, leather upholstery, and heated front seats.

A used 2008 Skoda Superb 3.6-litre costs in the region of £19,000. Baked beans cost considerably less.
