Skoda Su­perb 2.0 TDI 190PS DSG 4x4 (or 2.0 TSI 280PS DSG 4x4) Priced from £31,885 (or £32,320) An­nual Road Fund Li­cence £130 (or £185) Com­bined fuel con­sump­tion 55mpg (or 49mpg) Power 190bhp (or 280bhp) 0–60mph 7.7secs (or 5.8secs) Top speed 143mph (or 155mph)

280bhp turbo-charged petrol. The diesel will give you just over 50 miles to the gal­lon, the petrol just un­der 40. Both use the VW group’s fab­u­lous DSG au­to­matic gear­box.

Thus equipped and in the SE L trim, the gen­er­ously ap­por­tioned Su­perb will cost about £3,000 less than a VW Pas­sat All­track and £5,000 less than an A4 All­road. In terms of space, the Su­perb is a closer ri­val to Audi’s A6 All­road and a whop­ping £15,000 cheaper. Now that it also looks the part, it’s lit­tle won­der this Czech su­perla­tive is sell­ing like the prover­bial.
