Review

‘Superb’ and ‘golf’ are two words which have never been used in the same sentence to describe my high-handicapper game, but for a week they were a match made in heaven. This was nothing to do with the quality of my game, but how the Škoda performed during a 900-mile golfing holiday with a friend in Scotland.

We don’t travel lightly, meaning that we usually have to either fold down the back seats or have a bag across the back seat to fit everything in. It was this that saw me swap out of my normal Vauxhall Astra long-termer and into the Superb to take advantage of its enormous boot which, at 625 litres, is larger than those of rivals such as the Ford Mondeo (541 litres) and Vauxhall Insignia (530). With its square shape, this was ideal as it meant we could put both bags across in, while there was still room to add our trolleys.

The Superb’s impressive load-carrying ability was far from its only success. Over the week, its high level of refinement and comfortable ride quality made it an ideal long-distance companion, while fuel economy averaged 60mpg. If only my golf game lived up to the car’s abilities.
