Shy of purchasing an actual second-hand limousine, the Superb presents one of the best value pound-to-millimetre-of-metal ratios currently on the market.
It's packed with technology that is typically seen on more premium machines, the boot can swallow bodies and there's little to complain about in the driving department either.
As a non-octogenarian, the next part is difficult to type, but it actually looks pretty good too. The new Superb is no Lamborghini but it's very easy on the eye.
And in terms of engines, the 276bhp 4x4 option is definitely the one to have if you're keen on attacking country roads but it is expensive, costly to run and just a little bit daft. But stick to the lower powered petrol or diesel models and it's very difficult to be disappointed in the new look Skoda Superb.
