Superb it is! (2 ltr L&K diesel aut)
Added: 15th of November 2013
If you want a big car that is practicable and economical you cant beat a Superb. Admittedly mine is a company car, but it has done 160000 miles with little trouble. The interior space is vast and comfortable - I would love to ride in the back if someone else would drive! As a load carrier it is excellent too, I have carried a single wardrobe in it with the tailgate shut. Appearance wise it looks impressive from the side or front, though a bit awkward from the back ( later models have been improved there.) Of course, you can't always find a parking space for it's length! The low profile tyres and alloys on mine look smart too, but are a bit of a pain in practice, as they are easily damaged, and there is more tyre noise than I would like. Running wise, I like the way the auto DSG gearbox works, but it needs paddles on the steering wheel to make use of the manual feature. The engine has plenty of power, though there is room for making it quieter.It certainly is economical - I get an average of 50 mpg most days and I am not a slow driver. I remember when I used to drive an Astra diesel van to get that economy! When my employer gets rid of this car, I am hoping to use it myself for at least another 2 years and 40000 miles.
