In the second of our ‘Driven By Something Different’ series, we learn how Nina balances being a mother to three, while fundraising through running
19 October 2017

Meet Nina: a mother of three children, who balances her home life and her career with a passion for fundraising through long-distance running.

Nina first joined her husband in a marathon in order to raise money and give something back to the organisations that helped their eldest daughter, Olivia, through a rare liver condition.

Since then, Nina has been inspired to go to new extremes in her fund-raising efforts, and is now looking to combine her love of swimming and running as she competes in a Half Ironman.

That’s why the Skoda Superb is the perfect car in which Nina can take on her passion for the outdoors. After all, it was named ‘Best estate car’ and ‘Best executive car less than £25,000’ in the 2017 What Car? Car of the Year Awards.

Available as a stylish hatch or a spacious estate with a wide selection of fuel-efficient engines – and now with a dynamic new SportLine trim – the Skoda Superb range offers you a wealth of choice.

Whether you’re after the latest in-car technologies – such as wireless smartphone charging and hands-free phone calls – if you want safety and convenience features such as adaptive cruise control, park assist, blind spot detection and lane assist, or if you’re after up to 1,950 litres of load volume in the Estate, with plenty of clever storage solutions, there’s almost certainly a Skoda Superb that’s perfect for you.

Driven this week

  • BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo front
    The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo
    First Drive
    16 February 2018
    The top-of-the-line 6 Series Gran Turismo has arrived in the UK, but does a more potent engine increase its unusual appeal?
  • Audi TT RS Coupé
    First Drive
    16 February 2018
    The Audi TT RS has the looks, a vociferous engine and the supercar-baiting performance, but is it too uncompromising to use as a daily driver?
  • Range Rover Velar front quarter
    The new Range Rover Velar P300 features a four-cylinder petrol engine
    First Drive
    16 February 2018
    JLR’s most powerful four-pot isn’t the engine the Velar truly wants but perhaps the one that makes most sense
  • Mitsubishi Outlander diesel
    The Mitsubishi Outlander diesel is available with five or seven seats
    First Drive
    15 February 2018
    The Outlander isn't just available as a PHEV: how does the diesel version compare to seven-seat rivals such as the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq?
  • Ferrari Portofino
    The Portofino's engine revs to a tremulous 7500rpm; it has a huge swell of mid-range torque; and it responds crisply at all times and feels unusually progressive in its power delivery for a highly stressed turbo
    First Drive
    13 February 2018
    Faster, more agile and perhaps more authentically ‘Ferrari’, but the Portofino lacks the dynamic sophistication of a great GT car, just like its predecessor
