Skoda Superb Greenline 2012

by SpeedLux


The Greenline II model is all but the same as the existing Superb, save for one or two changes on the outside: it sits 15mm lower than the standard car to improve airflow, features Greenline badges, low rolling resistance tyres and a subtle boot spoiler on the back. Inside, it’s just as robust and well built as ever.

Ever the class-topper when it comes to price, the Skoda Superb Greenline II starts at £18,685 in S trim as a hatchback and tops out at £22,780 for the Elegance model. The estate costs £19,790 in its most basic guise and £24,040 in its most expensive. Whatever way you look at it, that’s not expensive, and it puts much larger, less comfortable or luxurious cars to shame.  As for equipment, the Superb has always been well decked out, and the Greenline II version has exactly the same amount of luxuries as the standard cars do on S, SE and Elegance trim respectively – which is plenty.

As with the other Greenline II Skodas that we tested this week, we didn’t find any real surprises in the Superb. The latest version is just as predictable, sure-footed and thoroughly comfortable as those that came before it.

A 1.6-litre TDI engine with 104bhp might sound like small potatoes in such a large car, but it’s just enough for the big Czech. Lengthier gearing means you can leave the gearbox alone for the most part (we managed to sprint from 30- to 70mph in third gear with revs left to spare) and the stop-start system does its job as well as any other.

This could be the most affordable way to transport a large amount of gear around. The Skoda Superb Estate has the second largest boot of any car in its class at 1,865 litres (the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate has the biggest). The big Skoda offers 64.2mpg and emissions of 114g/km, which you have to doff your cap to.

So price aside, if you’re in the market for an environmentally-aware, attractive, classy and well-built estate, the Superb GreenLine Estate makes a lot of sense.
