I haven't had any negative feedback from the owners.As a PP said, they aren't a three across the back seat, which restricts them for some.Skoda get all the matured and proven VAG tech with all the problems iron out. The Superb is often called the poor mans Audi A6, but i like to think of it as a wise mans last year A6, if exterior design doesn't bother you. I was going to hang out until the new Superb arrived here in Australia but since the Dieselgate outrage, I can no longer have any faith in a VAG based product. Our family is currently lumbered with a 2009 Audi Q5 2.0 TDI as well as a 2011 Golf Tsi.The interior build quality is luxury and high standard. The Golf had a new DSG transmission installed under warranty 2 years ago and only this week, during a routine book maintenance had to have the 2 rear shock absorbers replaced due to leaks.Because it was rare thing in a UK manufactured vehicle in those days, I vividly recall a heater.
You can't fit three adults or three child seats across the back seat as easily as you could in say a Commodore. People are buying SUVs instead because they prefer sitting up higher to having interior space and being able to go around corners. I've a couple of friends with them, and there's another couple around my suburb.
), great fuel economy, quiet cabin, great rear leg room, good looks, excellent safety and available in a wagon! Compared to the equivalent Falcon or Commodore its not even a contest.
It is narrower than a Falcodore, I have never tried to put three baby seats in one but apparently that is a squeeze.
VAG is trying to position Skoda between Seat and VW in their tier of brands* so they make sure that Skoda gets old tech and has reduced the pricing advantage over VW so that brand snobs have less reason to go with Skoda over VW.
(*) VAG goes something like this (from basic to prestige): Seat Skoda VWAudi (Discounting sports/niche brands (Porche, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Bentley) and trucks (Scania, MAN) and bikes (Ducati)) VAG is trying to position Skoda between Seat and VW in their tier of brands* so they make sure that Skoda gets old tech and has reduced the pricing advantage over VW so that brand snobs have less reason to go with Skoda over VW. In many other businesses where products are sold to consumers, vertical integration is seen as an advantage – ie If a consumer bypasses brand a and purchase branch b that is made from the same company then that's a good result (regardless if the consumer knows both products come from the same company). I would argue if profit margin is maintained, why would VAG be worried?
