- New Superb Estate offers best-in-class interior space
- Engines offer up to a 30 percent improvement in fuel economy
- Available to order in June with first deliveries expected in September
Hot on the heels of the hatchback, an estate version of the popular Skoda Superb has been unveiled and promises more interior space, greater technology and lower running costs than ever before.
Skoda has offered an estate version of its flagship model since 2009 and to date more than 200,000 have been delivered to customers worldwide.
According to the Czech firm the new second-generation Superb Estate offers the best interior space in its segment with a wheelbase that has been extended by 80mm to 2,841mm. The width of the car has also been increased to 1,584mm at the front and to 1,572mm at the rear.
Luggage space extends to 660-litres, an increase of 27-litres compared to the previous model; when the rear seats are folded down, space expands to an impressive 1,950-litres.
Design changes mirror those of the recently launched Superb hatchback which give the estate a sleeker, more elegant look.
When it comes to engines, all will be EU6 compliant and are more powerful and up to 30 per cent more efficient than previous offerings. We are yet to have confirmation on which engines will be offered in Britain, but we expect those to be similar to the recently launched hatch which has four petrols and three diesels available, with CO2 emissions as low as 105g/km.
The latest generation of infotainment systems will also be available in the new Superb plus connecting to the internet inside the car is possible as an optional extra.
In September, the new Skoda Superb Estate will make its motor show debut in Frankfurt and will be launched into the first markets in the same month. Here in the UK the new Superb Estate will be available to order from June.
