Road Test: Skoda Superb [2009-2014]

Read Page : View all 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Cost
    At Rs 18.4 lakh ex-showroom Mumbai, the 1.8 TSI is incredible value for money – not something a luxury car in India can usually boast about. The TDI PD is a little pricier at Rs 21.5 lakh, but will definitely offer better resale value than the petrol.

Overall evaluation
    If you’re looking for rear seat comfort, look no farther. You’ll have to look at something like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class for equivalent legroom, but this is priced much lower than the C-Class – so much that it’s one of a kind: a new, up-to-date luxury car that’s a bargain as well. We’d pick the petrol and take the good and bad that comes along with it. Besides, if the Superb is good enough for the Czech head of state, it’s certainly good enough for us!

The Superb V6 retails for Rs 26.4 lakh, ex-showroom, Mumbai. At the price, it is on par with the Honda Accord V6 and the Nissan Teana. It is packed with more features, offers all-wheel drive, a dual-clutch gearbox and handling and driver involvement that is certainly the best of the trio of V6-powered luxo-barges.
