Škoda is growing its market share in Ireland on a daily basis and for many years the Octavia RS Combi has been the choice of the family man who needs a bit of zip in his family car. The Superb is the Octavia’s bigger brother and when I say bigger I mean monstrous.

Sitting into the Superb’s big figure-hugging seats the vastness of this car becomes apparent. The back window seems to be in a different parish.
