Fleet news logo

Škoda's new Superb will be priced from £18,640 when it is launched later this year.

The model will be available with seven engine options with additional option of DSG automatic and 4x4 transmissions on selected variants.

The engine range consists of four TSI petrol and three TDI diesel units with outputs ranging from 120hp for the entry-level diesel 1.6 TDI to 280hp for the new 2.0 TSI engine.

Four trim levels will be available at launch: S, SE, SE L Executive and Laurin & Klement, with each one offering higher specification and equipment levels than comparable models in the current line-up.

At 4,861mm long and 1,864mm wide, the new Superb is 28mm longer and 47mm wider than its predecessor, while the 2,841mm wheelbase is 80mm longer, allowing for greater space within the passenger compartment.

The boot is 30 litres larger than before, at 625 litres, expanding to a 1,760 litres with the rear seat backs folded.

Despite the increased size, the new ŠKODA Superb is up to 75kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks in part to weight-saving measures made available by the car’s MQB construction.

The Superb also features new technology and the brand’s Simply Clever features. 

The new features include a virtual pedal system that opens the boot with the wave of a foot under the rear bumper and full integration of Apple and Android smartphones via CarPlay, MirrorLink and Google Android Auto.

Safety and convenience features include blind spot detection, rear traffic alert, third-generation park assist and traffic jam assist.

All Superb models feature alloy wheels, air conditioning, LED rear lights, DAB digital radio and a touchscreen infotainment system. Skoda’s comprehensive ESC safety system is also fitted across the range, and has the additional benefit of Multi-Collision brake included – triggering automatic brake intervention upon detection of a collision – as standard.

First deliveries are expected in September.
