Skoda Superb Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior, Models & News

The Skoda Superb is a medium-sized family sedan and wagon that has garnered widespread acclaim since its 2009 arrival.

Priced from $65,590 to $67,290 for the Superb Sportline 206TSI (4X4) and Superb Sportline 206TSI (4X4) variants, respectively, the Skoda Superb features a range of turbo-petrol and turbo-diesel engines, manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions, and two- and four-wheel drive drivetrains shared with similar Volkswagen products, such as the Volkswagen Golf, Passat, CC, and Tiguan, Skoda Octavia and Kodiaq, and Audi A4 and A5; a clear indictor of the numerous partnerships.

Superb rivals include the Volkswagen Passat, Mazda6, Holden Commodore, and Ford Mondeo.

Skoda Superb Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Skoda Superb here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does the glovebox randomly open in my 2021 Skoda Superb Scout?

    If you’re convinced that the problem is a manufacturing or materials fault (rather than the glove-box having been slammed or forced shut) then keep at Skoda until you get a satisfactory result. Having video of the glove-box performing its unwanted trick should help with any convincing you need to do. Don’t bother going back to the same dealer, contact Skoda Australia’s customer service department and go straight to the top.

    Don’t be put off by being told that nobody’s ever heard of this problem before, either. It has been raised by other Superb owners on forums, even though we’re yet to hear of it in Australia. In the meantime, here’s something to try for yourself: The next time the glove box falls open of its own accord, instead of shutting it straight away (only for it to open again) wait a few minutes and then try to close it normally. The theory is that the pins you’re talking about that hold the lid closed can be slow to glide into their proper position where they hold the lid closed. Giving them a few minutes to resume their correct position will allow the glove box to be closed and stay closed. If that does the trick, lubricating the pins to allow them to move more freely might be worthwhile. It’s worth a try.

    This might sound like an small problem to some, but having a glovebox that falls open into the passenger’s lap is actually a safety issue in the case of a crash.

  • How to reduce the fuel consumption in my Skoda Superb Scout?

    While I’ll admit that an average fuel consumption figure of 12.4 litres per 100km is high for your car, there are a few things to consider here. By driving just seven kilometres each way to work and back, you’re probably running for half your driving time with an engine that is still warming up. Cold engines use a richer mixture and that means more fuel. Cold starts are a real problem for fuel consumption, and you appear to be driving on a cold engine for a high percentage of your daily run.

    The other consideration is your average speed. You say that there’s no stop-start traffic conditions, but if you drive at urban speeds all the way to work, then you need to be looking at the official urban fuel consumption number which is 9.0 litres per 100km (the 7.3 litres figure you’ve quoted is for a mix of urban and highway running).

    Even so, 9 litres per 100km is a lot less than 12.4 litres, so maybe there is something going on. Despite your reservations about Skoda’s politics, the best thing to do is to have the car electronically interrogated to see what, if any, fault codes appear. Only then can you really know what’s going on. Are you using the recommended 95-RON fuel? The wrong octane rating (RON) can have an effect on fuel consumption, as can a heavy right foot.

  • Skoda Superb: Cruise control failure

    It hasn’t been hit, which would be obvious to an experienced eye, and there haven’t been any repairs done to it, so how does Skoda explain that. Your options are to continue pursuing Skoda to repair your car for free, enlist the help of your state consumer affairs people in the hope they might be able to assist you, or pay for it yourself and move on.

  • What car is big enough to sleep in the back of?

    It's hard to give you a definite recommendation, as most cargo measurements are in litres rather than floor length, but I reckon most mid-size wagons and large SUVs would do the job for you. 

    Most of these have a flat boot floor with the seats folded, and likely have ample body length for sleeping. 

    So Mazda6, Skoda Superb or Ford Mondeo wagons are worth a look, plus large SUVs like the Mazda CX-9, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe

    Don't be afraid to try them out for size at the dealers either. You'd certainly test out a mattress before buying right?!

Skoda Superb Boot Space

The boot is one of the best things about the car. It’s large but the liftback lid means you can load bigger items in because the opening is much larger than a conventional sedan. And it’s easier to access items at the far back too.

It is also quite deep with most luggage not even touching the cargo blind. With all five seats up, you have 625L of space but pop that back row down and that jumps up to 1760L – which is outstanding. 

The boot has a cubby for a first-aid kit, space saver spare tyre and a 12V port. There’s also luggage anchors and shopping bag hooks. It is a powered tailgate with kick function, perfect for when you have your hands full.
