I’ve never been a wagon fan. It’s not even a mum car, it’s a proper dad car. It must be a hangover from the 70’s when the old Kingswoods dotted the streets. But wagons have come a long way since then. Case in point: the Skoda Superb.
It’s actually beautifully designed, sleek and elongated. Definitely not what I was expecting.
Skodas are from the same company as VW and Audi, so the interiors are just as stylish. You know that feeling you get when you’re surrounded by quality? It comes over you like a cool drink of water on a hot summer’s day and makes you go “ahh”. That’s the feeling you get sitting in one of these.
The driving is so smooth, it’s positively creamy, it’s got power to get up hills quickly and weaves in and out of traffic well. It’s a pleasure to drive. Then there’s the very-excellent-and-oh-so-necessary-when-you-have-kids giant boot. Being able to throw things in the back takes just one thing off your mind. Plus it has all the usual bells and whistles - Apple Carplay, advanced safety features … they’ve even popped in an umbrella for you in the door. And just like that, Skoda may have converted me to liking wagons. Who knew?
