Company car drivers opting for the Skoda Superb 2.5 V6 Tdi can now avoid the three per cent tax surcharge on diesels.

Lower emissions for the modified six-cylinder diesel means that it now meets Euro IV regulations. Changes to the fuel injection system, turbo, cylinder head, and a remapped ECU also mean a slight bump in power to 160bhp, 5bhp over the old 2.5 V6. But the big news is the increase in torque to 258lb ft, up 30lb-ft. Fuel consumption though remains the same at a combined 39.8mpg.

Two models are available: the £20,700 Comfort six-speed manual and the £24,800 Elegance auto.
