Running in hybrid mode seems to elicit good fuel economy, though. we tell the story at cartell.ie, Volkswagen Passat GTE Estate (2020) review, Motor Road Tax Prices in Ireland Explained, Every electric car currently on sale in Ireland, €43,850 as tested; Superb iV starts at €40,350, 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder plus 85kW electric motor, six-speed dual-clutch automatic, front-wheel drive. My test car has a few easy-to-justify options, which despite a price hike earlier this year, keep the car as-tested under the £40,000 VED threshold.

7. The Skoda Superb iV is smooth, refined, economical (if you keep it charged regularly) and still has that soothingly comfortable and beautifully made cabin. You'll have to be paying quite close attention to tell the Skoda Superb iV plug-in hybrid apart from its more conventionally-powered brethren. But, wait, record-scratch-sound-effect!

There will be few moaning about a lack of space.

My initial impressions suggest that the Superb could be one of the best all-round cars money can buy. 20 Jul 2020. Even when the engine does join in, the 1.4 TSI is generally pretty quiet (although it does become a touch thrashy as you reach for the redline) so progress is smooth and silent most of the time. Words: Neil Briscoe - @neilmbriscoe Published on: November 29, 2019. As a part of the VW Group, this brand is also included in the company’s electrification program. Not that I’ve had to charge it all that often, even before lockdown, because the Superb iV has an official electric range of 34 miles. The ideal car for the daily commute? Aside from a few revised electric buttons and different dials, it’s all plain sailing in the cabin, too, and it feels just like a normal Superb – that’s no bad thing as this large Skoda is one of the best cars to spend time in. We try out the new M550i xDrive to find out…, 1.4-litre 4cyl turbo plus e-motor, 215bhp, 19-inch Canopus alloy wheels (£695), LED package plus (£395), Moon White metallic paint (£595), rear parking camera (£385), Virtual Cockpit (£475). A vast load space has long been a Superb calling card, but the need to package the large 13kWh battery, as well as a 50-litre fuel tank, means that something has to give, and that something is the boot. Our Style-spec test car (which will be the best-selling version in Ireland) looks good enough, but go for the pricier Sportline model, and pick both black alloy wheels and the gorgeous almost-matte finish grey paint option and you've got a seriously good-looking car. Read the definitive Skoda Superb 2020 review from the expert What Car? Skoda's claim of 38 miles on the battery might be a touch far, but we reckon 25-30 miles is probably doable on average, so the Superb iV will be for many buyers, for much of the time, a purely electric car. Skoda >> Superb >> Skoda Superb iV hybrid (2020). The overwhelming impression of driving the Superb iV is one of refinement.

I’m spending an extended period with one to discover if it is. Impressively, it’s not been hard to keep fuel economy around 50mpg most of the time, even without religiously charging the car, and that’s despite the iV weighing more than 200kg on top of the lightest Superb. Apple’s brilliant platform is instantly accessible as long as the phone is connected to the car via Bluetooth, and it has rendered the native sat-nav redundant for me. Obviously that won't be good for your overall fuel consumption. It'll reach 80mph in electric mode, and while it's obviously not as brisk as it is running as a hybrid, it's hardly disgraced, either. It's a handsome beast - sleeker in person than you're expecting, and it responds well to some options. Capacity for this hatchback version falls by 22 per cent to 485 litres - still a reasonably respectable figure, but not the vastness that we're used to.
