Their upright bodies tend to offer practicality advantages beyond their commanding view of the road and perceived readiness for the 'big trip', but they're certainly not the only choice if you need to carry a dinner table's worth of family or food.

The Skoda Superb is one such alternative. It’s available as a smart five door hatch disguised as a sedan, but the wagon version pushes the practicality levels well into five-seat large SUV territory.

Nikki and Peter know what it takes to keep a family happy, but does the diesel Superb wagon hold up under their scrutiny?

Plus: Andrew Chesterton takes a detailed look at the Superb140 TDI wagon.

Also: Richard Berry was among the first to sample the Superb at its Australian launch.
