Having spent some time in several countries in Europe and Australia recently I can say that the Skoda Superb wagon is impressive.
I did not drive it but by all accounts it seems good. Based on VW drive train it is nicely put together and space allocation similar to the 9-5. (Maybe even better, not sure.)
They look just ok but are very popular in Europe (inc Sweden where I was pleased to see a few Saabs of course but sad to not see more)
