Find out why Autocar's sister magazine What Car? has rated the new Superb as the benchmark car in its class
2 November 2015

Autocar's sister publication What Car? puts new cars through their paces in some of the most in-depth tests in the industry. That means when a car scores highly, it's worth taking a close look at.

Recently, both the estate and saloon versions of the new Skoda Superb have been given five-star ratings by What Car?, and have also topped comparison tests against other highly rated models in their class. The Superb scored well based on space, practicality, kit levels and its competitive price.

Having learnt of the results of those tests, Skoda asked Autocar and What Car? editorial director Jim Holder to explain why the Superb scored so highly. To find out his verdict, watch this video.
