Skoda Superb Combi Debuts With A 660-Liter Trunk
|   Wednesday, June 17, 2015
The new Skoda Superb Combi boasts the best space in the segment, but the reality is that the only model that could raise claims on this is... the old Skoda Superb Combi version.

The proper official presentation take place in autumn in Frankfurt; following that the new model becomes available for sale immediately thereafter, in the second half of September.

The new Skoda Superb Combi is based on the same MQB modular architecture, like the Passat version and Golf, but the Skoda model offers an interior space worthy of a higher class.
Because we are talking about a station wagon we will start with the trunk, which has a maximum capacity of nearly 2,000 liters and 660 liters with the rear seat in place.

The practical aspect is the main reason why 35 percent of all Skoda Superb models sold so far have been Combi version, amounting to a total of over 200,000 units. Its design doesn't pull down the station wagon model either, having an sporty and aggressive enough look can also attract customers outside the scope of the family-friendly group.

But back to the practical aspect of the new Superb Combi, which boasts the largest interior space in the class. Thus the wheelbase has been increased by 80 mm to 2841 mm (more than the total length of a Smart Fortwo), and the track gauge is now 1,584 mm in front and 1572 mm in the rear. The lateral space for driver and passenger increased by 39 mm, while headroom is 995 mm in front, and 1,001 mm in the rear, more than any other model in its segment.
The knees space is 157 mm in the rear, almost twice more than the nearest competitor and lateral space on the back seat has increased by 70 mm.

Moving on to things less tangible than space, the Skoda Superb Combi announces that it comes with a "more passionate, more modern and emotional" design than before. The fact is that this silhouette is full of sharp edges and angular surfaces and has a dynamic elegance to which it's hard to stay indifferent.
This new silhouette is due largely to the same MQB platform, thanks to which the wheelbase has increased, thereby reducing the size of the console and allowing more plunged angles for the roof and rear window.

Like the tailgate version, the Superb Combi can be fitted with a range of assistance systems for increased comfort and better fuel economy, such as Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), high-speed internet connection, SmartLink, or Euro 6 engines that are more powerful and 30 percent more efficient than their correspondents until now.

The engine range on the new Superb Combi generation is taken from the sedan version and provides a level of power between 120 hp and 280 hp. 4 of the 8 engines on offer are provided in the company of the Haldex 5 all-wheel drive system.

The petrol engines offer outputs from 125 hp and 280 hp, and are 5 in number. Diesel units provides power between 120 hp and 190 hp and account for the remaining 3 engines on offer for the Skoda Superb third generation. In its standard equipment the model will have an energy recovery system from braking and start-stop system, designed to ensure lower consumption by up to 30 percent compared to the previous generation, while power level increased by 20 percent.
