Superb wagon's spec to lure fleets

  • Class leading luggage space
  • Generous standard kit
  • Fleets to buy 75 per cent

Skoda is promising the Superb estate will be its most luxurious car ever when it arrives in the UK in February 2010.

Like the Superb hatchback, the estate will be available in S, SE and Elegance equipment grades, but the estate will have additional features to make it stand out.

All models are fitted with a pair of lights built into the tailgate to illuminate both the load bay and the area around the rear of the car.

A third LED boot light can be removed altogether if necessary and mounted to the car's body thanks to a magnet fitted to the light.

There is an optional power operated function on the tailgate, and the integrated luggage cover retracts automatically then the boot is opened.

A variable floor can also be specified which extends over the rear bumper to help with awkward loads.

Customers choosing SE or Elegance models will also have a load partition and tethering system as standard, and all models are fitted with roof rails.

A first for Skoda on the Superb estate is an optional keyless entry and starting system, as well as a two-piece electric panoramic sunroof.

Luggage volume is 633 litres with the rear seats in place and a maximum of 1865 litres to roof height with the rear seats folded.

The Superb estate will carry a premium of between £1150 and £1350 over the hatchback when it goes on sale in February, and fleets are expected to take a 75 per cent share of sales.
