Skoda Superb Performance & First Drive

Auto
Skoda Superb Overview Disney has made its mark because it has created characters that have been relatable and when you think about Uncle Scrooge, you are reminded of those who want more for less. In 2009, when Skoda came out with the Superb, that was exactly what they brought to the table considering that there were rivals in the markets in the form of the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. The big flaw that it had was on the design front and yes, it looked a bit stretched, out of proportion even and that translated into it becoming a limo of sorts. Compared to its cousin, the Volkswagen Passat, the Superb clearly didn't look as compact or feel like one either and there were a lot of expectations when…

Auto
Mercedes Benz AMG GT Overview Think of it as the facelifted AMG GT.
