The New Škoda Superb has secured impressive insurance ratings, placing the model among the most competitively rated cars in the upper medium sector.

The entry diesel 1.9 TDI PD 105bhp engine on the S trim Superb has been granted insurance rating 6E, an improvement of three positions over the outgoing Superb, which can translate into a considerable saving on car insurance.

The entry petrol 1.4 TSI 125bhp engine has also achieved a lower rating than its petrol entry level predecessor and sits in insurance band 7E across all three trim levels.

Chris Horrell, Product Marketing Manager at Škoda UK, comments: "The new Superb has achieved much improved ratings thanks to enhanced vehicle security, competitive pricing and low cost of parts and repairs. All of these factors contribute to lower insurance premiums for our customers."
