The on-the-road price for each Outdoor model is £26,995 and £29,235 respectively. That is a £2,000 premium over the SE trim but with such a high specification it represents exceptional value-for-money.

Additional kit includes 18-inch ‘Trinity’ anthracite alloys, Hill Hold Control, tyre pressure monitor, integrated front headlight washers, heated washer nozzles and sunset glass.

If you choose the Skoda Superb Outdoor Plus then full leather upholstery and an ‘Amundsen’ satellite navigation system with integrated DAB digital radio is all there just for a further £1,000.
The Skoda Superb was voted the ‘UK’s Best Car’ and the ‘most loved’ in a JD Power satisfaction survey, the Skoda Yeti was hot at its heels in second place. The Superb was rated best in class especially for rear passenger comfort, but the highest praise was for the huge boot, it is easy to load and unload because of its TwinDoor rear hatch, which can open either as a saloon-style boot or full tailgate. The Superb offers the choice of six engines; a 1.6-litre diesel and two 2.0-litre diesels, 1.4- and 1.8-litre turbocharged petrols and a 3.6-litre V6 petrol that drives all four wheels through a twin-clutch, semi-auto gearbox. All Superbs have an iPod-compatible CD player, electric windows and door mirrors, alloy wheels and some form of air-conditioning. SE spec adds parking sensors, cruise control and a 6-CD touch-screen stereo, to which SE Plus adds touch-screen sat-nav and Bluetooth The range-topping Elegance cars have a tyre-pressure monitoring system, rain-sensing wipers, heated front seats, leather upholstery and electric seats.
