New Skoda Superb Debuts Along With New Gallery Images And Video
|   Friday, May 08, 2015
In a lavish ceremony that took place in Prague, Skoda presented the third generation of its midsize sedan, the Superb.
Elegance, strength of character and dynamism - these are the three attributes that the new flagship of the Czechs intends to impose on a segment with big names, where standards are reset every new generation of models. Well, judging strictly from the perspective of design, Skoda has passed to a whole new level because none of the lines on the new Superb hint at an affordable car.


The new front area has a strong personality and enhances the feeling of massiveness, a wide car with premium meanings. And the back is one that dramatically changes the balance of power. The Superb's old version has been widely criticized for the slightly unfortunate shape of the optical blocks (partially remedied after the facelift), but the new model buries this episode and comes with an elegant rear, firm and strong, like a true executive limousine. The well-defined edges, which are spread on the side of the car, blend harmoniously with the new optical blocks - drawn after the typical Skoda signature and shaped like the letter C. It is hard to find an angle from which the new Superb does not look good.

Since the first generation, when it was only a longer Passat, the Skoda Superb stood out through the huge inside, comfortable and well equipped, relative to the price of the car. And these attributes remain standing on its third generation too.

The interior space has grown in all directions. The driver and front passenger enjoy an extra 39 mm in the shoulder area and more room for the head. But this still can be considered crammed in comparison with the rear seat passengers. Having at their disposal 157 mm of foot wells and 980 mm in the head area, they will feel like in a luxury sedan because no other model in the segment can approach these values. The trunk was also increased by 30 liters compared to the previous generation, now reaching 625 liters.

The Skoda Superb is the first model that provides adaptive chassis (DCC), which allows the adjustment of the shock absorber's firmness. Also new is the three-zone climate control and thermal comfort equipment list that is complemented by heated seats, auxiliary heating, heated windshield; even its nozzles washing system can be heated.

The Superb has always been appreciated for its integrated umbrellas in doors - a solution found only in exclusive luxury cars. The new model picks up this idea, but hides the two umbrellas in the front doors, more clearly drawing the identity of a car that makes it worth to hire a driver.

Based on the new MQB platform of the group, the new Skoda Superb offers at debut eight engine versions with outputs ranging from 120 hp to 280 hp. Compared with the generation it replaces, the new Czech limousine is 30 percent more energy efficient, the most fuel efficient version (GreenLine) having a declared consumption of only 3.7 l/100 km and a level of carbon emissions of 95 g/km. Except for the 1.4 TSI version, rated at 125 hp, all other engines can be coupled to the DSG dual-clutch transmission and four of them may even have AWD with a Haldex center differential.
