Car of the Year 2021
Skoda Superb 2.0 TSI Laurin & Klement
Skoda Superb 2.0 TSI Laurin & Klement

The Skoda Superb has a special place in our hearts. The Czech D-Segment sedan, in its upmarket Laurin & Klement trim, has an equip-ment list that you could easily mistake for a car that is more upmarket. The Superb does deliver excellently well on practicality, and has features that could easily rival many luxury brands... Luxury and space has never been this attainable!
