Skoda has released first pictures of its new family orientated Superb estate, which goes on sale in September for a predicted £20,000.
The new model follows the successful debut of the Superb hatchback and shares its cavernous interior. It ups the ante in terms of practicality, however, offering 660 litres of rear load space, which expands to a gargantuan 1,950 litres with the rear seats folded flat – making it amongst the most commodious estate cars on the market.
Offering class leading interior space (rear passengers are especially well catered for) and vastly improved comfort, the Superb could be just the thing with families who a looking for high quality at a reasonable price.
Despite measuring a lengthy 4.8 metres, the Superb manages to look sporty thanks to its wide track, short front overhang and steeply angled rear window. The rear-end styling is also much less dowdy than its predecessor, having taken design inspiration from the new Octavia estate.
The Czech company's estate also comes with plenty of equipment designed to keep everyone in the car both safe and comfortable. It features Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) as well as smartphone connectivity and the option of an Internet hot spot. Buyers looking for serious luxury touches can choose from such kit as a panoramic glass sunroof, or choose the upmarket Laurin & Klement specification.
