SummarySharper design, LED lights & the only diesel in its class. Now, thatís Superb!

Skodaís flagship model, premium features are very important for buyers.

For one, an inbuilt GPS navigation integrated with the audio system, which is almost the norm in premium cars today, should definitely have been offered, at least in the top trim level. But what left me most surprised was that Skoda also decided not to offer USB connectivity for the audio system. Another mistake is not offering audio controls for rear seat passengers, which is significant since most cars in this segment are chauffeur-driven. On the outside, a rear parking camera is also missedóthis would have been very useful for a such a long car, and is even offered by cars such as Hyundai Verna which cost half as much.

Overall, the Superb remains a great deal in the segment, though half of the reason is because of a lack of any real competition. Both the Volkswagen Passat and Honda Accord have reportedly been phased out of the market until the new models come in, while both the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata are only available in petrol. If itís great value and luxury you are after, look no further than the Superb.
