The 2020 Skoda Superb is a large family car that has been manufactured by Czech car manufacturer Skoda Autos. The Skoda offers just more than the price and capability, but the Skoda Superb hatchback offers enough to disappoint even the highest expectations. With a lovely interior, countless functions and plenty of machinery, Super is one of the best Skodas we can remember. While the price is directly competitive with competitors such as Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia, Super offers customers the ban and upgrade of the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes E-Class or Jaguar XF, costing thousands of pounds more. And if you completely ignore its price tag, Superb can still offer its top rivals a powerful test in several places.
Ever since it was launched by Superb it has always left us happy and perhaps our only criticism is that it is not very enjoyable to drive, but this is not its real purpose. For most trips, there are few cars at a price that can offer comfort and entertainment. With excellent construction quality, Skoda’s back badge is less likely to be ironic. In fact, the biggest challenge could be the apparent global trend when customers turn their backs on large family cars toward SUVs such as the Skoda Kodiaq.
2020 Skoda Superb Interior
Inside, the building materials are usually very high and appear to be neatly put together. The attention to detail is also impressive: there are soft softeners on the inside, as well as door-to-door drums and rubber hanging tubes. Any harsher items are usually limited to low-lying areas. The Superb switch is well-threatened and the nice driving-level fonts look changed. It may not be as hard on the inside as the BMW 3 Series or as well-executed as the Audi A4, but Super feels less comfortable like the Volkswagen Passat with a much higher premium than other leading competitors, including Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia. The trim-level S entry gets an 8.0in touch screen and SmartLink +. That’s Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which allows you to use certain smartphone apps, such as Google Maps and Waze navigation, directly on the car screen.
The built-in sat-nav is common from SE Technology’s preferred resolution, while Bluetooth and DAB radio feature throughout the range, as well as dual USB ports and SD card reader for music files. For Sportline Plus and Laurin & Klement models, you get a very large 9.2in touch screen, DVD player and Wi-Fi capabilities. Overall Superb’s infotainment systems are much better to use than those in Ford Mondeo or Vauxhall Insignia, and are very similar to Volkswagen Passat’s. The best system in the class is BMW’s iDrive, however, with a rotating controller that is less disruptive than the touch screen when on the go. Music lovers, meanwhile, can enjoy the 12-speaker sound system, the 610W Canton sound standard standard on Laurin & Klement trim and optionally on all other models.
All 2020 Skoda Superb models have a flexible driver seat as standard. The SE trim adds a lumbar adjuster accent, while the SE Technology, Sportline Plus and above comes with electric seat adjustment and memory function. The large, flexible center armrest is common to all trims, too. One fly in the oil is a steering wheel: it manually adjusts the height and is accessible, but some drivers may find that it hides more than the metal unless it is adjusted to stay higher than the environment. Other than that, the dial is clear and the dashboard is well positioned, with all the big buttons for easy access. Skoda’s visual cockpit is selected for SE L resolution and above and gives you 10.3in digital display instead of standard analogue equipment.
2020 Skoda Superb Engine
Most engines are available with a DSG automatic gearbox, and it is possible to specify 148 or 188bhp diesel as well as 268bhp petrol engines with four-wheel drive following no more. Choose the latter, but the use of oil is excessive. The engine is shared with hot hats such as the Volkswagen Golf R and SEAT Leon Cupra, but it struggles to handle more than 33mpg. With an effective fuel efficiency of about 188mpg, the Superb i V plug-in hybrid is likely to attack business consumers. It uses a 1.5-liter petrol engine, electric motor and battery to pack up to 34 kilometers of electricity, and covers most daily trips. It also incurs significant tax savings.
2020 Skoda Superb Safety
The Skoda Superb is not disappointing, with a total of five stars after the Euro NCAP crash test in 2015. There are seven airbags installed as usual, and options include Crew Protection Aid, which closes windows and sunroof and tightens road seats in the event of an accident. Driving aids such as road maintenance and spot monitoring are also provided. Skoda Superb has completed ten of the 75 vehicles out of 75 vehicles listed in our Driver Power owner satisfaction survey for 2020 vehicles sold in the UK, with 2020 Skoda Superb as the fifth brand eliminating 30 manufacturers.
