Safety and Security
The Skoda Superb Hatchback was tested by Euro NCAP; in 2009 and was awarded overall five-stars, the maximum rating. It scored 90% for adult occupant, 81% child occupant, 50% pedestrian and 71% safety assist; we are not sure how the estate/outdoor would perform but there is no reason to believe it would be any different if tested. This compares to the Subaru Legacy also tested in 2009 – again a five score result, scoring 79% for adult occupant, 73% child occupant, 58% pedestrian and 71% safety assist.
The Skoda Superb Outdoor is equipped with seven airbags as standard (two optional), ABS (anti-lock brakes), EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution), tyre pressure monitor, Isofix child seats anchors and ESP (electronic-stability program).
Our test car was fitted with the standard ‘Bolero’ touchscreen stereo with integrated 6 CD changer with MP3 and SD card reader which was perfectly fine- you can add a plumbed in satellite navigation system as an option.

What We Disliked
We enjoyed our time with the Skoda Superb Outdoor – it is a competent vehicle and offers good value for money, although a 4x4 Superb Estate might be a wiser buy, as it only real loses the pseudo 4x4 styling protection. It would make the ideal tow car for a caravan or trailer and is a practical, family workhorse with a huge boot and a spacious cabin.19 July 2013
