I'm looking for a replacement for my BMW 3 Touring because we now have a baby and it's just not big enough.
I took a 170bhp diesel estate Superb Elegance (DSG) for a test drive on Monday and thought it was a very good car indeed. It was the dealer's car and FULLY loaded.
A big plus point for the Skoda is that when you start to look through the extras lists (eg. bigger alloys, parking assist, xenons) the prices tend to be less than the Audis, Mercs and BMW's . It componds the "better value" of the Skoda.
The Skoda has 600+ litres of boot pace. It's feckin' huge.
Just bear in mind that while you pay less for the Skoda up front, you'll get less for it when it's time to trade-in. The other marques would have retained quite a bit more of their value.
Is there much difference between this and the Octavia ? have an Octavia estate arriving in a few weeks as new company car.
