Two months in and questions over quality have emerged for Superb: we’ve noticed some trim buzz around the centre multimedia console, while a few weeks ago the metal strip around the top of the rear passenger door started to come away. It appeared to be a simple gluing issue, but a trip to the local Škoda dealer saw the entire strip replaced in a job lasting only about half an hour.

Since then, we’ve not encountered any other issues, so hopefully it was an isolated incident.

So far, our latest long-termer hasn’t topped the official 68.9mpg figures in quite the same way, although it did nudge 68mpg at one point before a traffic jam saw it slip back to 65mpg. The average is 59mpg, just four points higher than the previous generation model.

Our car comes with a number of driver enticements in its Business spec, such as digital radio, electric seats, drive mode selection, dual zone climate control, XDS+ electronic diff (which improves steering agility) and SmartLink.

There are far more likes than dislikes, such as the handbrake – which comes on automatically when you switch the ignition off – the huge boot and bags of rear legroom, and the price – you get all this for less than £23,000.
