Best Car Performance IN INDIA

By Mohit for Skoda Superb 2009-2014

Engine/Performance

Superb buyers get plenty of choice under the bonnet. Petrol fans can pick 123bhp 1.4-litre and 158bhp 1.8-litre versions of the firm’s punchy and economical turbocharged TSI units. Range-topping models are available with a 256bhp 2.6-litre V6 that will scorch from zero to 62mph in 6.5 seconds. Buyers more concerned with performance at the pumps can plump for the refined and torquey 2.0-litre TDI diesel in 138bhp or 168bhp forms. There’s also a 103bhp 1.9-litre oil-burner in the ultra economical Greenline model. Two six-speed gearbox options are available throughout the range – a traditional manual and swift-shifting DSG

Driving experience

Given its imposing size, the Skoda is surprisingly agile on the move. Well-weighted steering and good body control make it extremely capable on twisting back roads. Buyers wanting even more grip can specify the optional four-wheel drive transmission, which is standard on the range-topping 3.6-litre V6 car. Even more impressive is the car’s comfort and refinement. The supple suspension manages to smooth out the worst road surfaces, while wind and engine noise are kept to a minimum.

Ownership costs

Despite its generous standard kit and large size, the Superb actually undercuts its major rivals on price. Better still are the strong residuals, with diesel-engined versions holding around 44 percent of their value. Buyers on a budget should avoid the 3.6-litre V6, which will return just 28mpg and produces 235g/km of CO2, putting it in the top VED tax band. Go for the Greenline and you should be rewarded with a 55.4mpg performance at the pumps.

Safety/Environment:

There’s no doubting the Skoda’s strength, as a five-star EuroNCAP rating proves. All versions get ESP, seven airbags and ISOFIX seats. You can also splash extra cash on adaptive headlamps and tyre pressure monitoring. The eco-friendly Greenline emits 135g/km of CO2 and will return over 55mpg. But we’d recommend the smoother, more powerful 2.0-litre TDI as it produces only an extra 20g/km and delivers nearly 50mpg.

Our Choice: Superb SE 2.0 TDI 140

    A Very Good Car with some rough edges

    A nice Comfortable car with Great Interiors and acres of Space. The 1.8 TSI petrol engine is nice but a little under-powered for such a heavy car. The fuel economy is OK but not great, in fact a little extra power may improve fuel economy as there would be less stress on it. The heavy car requires a little revving Read More
