The flagship of the ŠKODA range, the new Superb features a striking new design, greater efficiency and more safety systems than ever before. And, thanks to ŠKODA’s legendary value for money, the new version has an even lower entry price point than the outgoing model.
At 4,861mm long and 1864mm wide, the new Superb is 28mm longer and 47mm wider than its predecessor, while the 2841mm wheelbase is 80mm longer, allowing for greater space within the passenger compartment. The boot is 30 litres larger than before, at 625 litres, expanding to a cavernous 1,760 litres with the rear seat backs folded. Despite the increased size, the new ŠKODA Superb is up to 75kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks in part to weight-saving measures made available by the car’s advanced MQB construction.
Reflecting its position as ŠKODA’s flagship model, the Superb introduces a host of technology features – many of which appear on a ŠKODA for the first time. These include a clever Virtual pedal system that opens the boot with just the wave of a foot under the rear bumper, full integration of Apple and Android smartphones via CarPlay, MirrorLink and Google Android Auto. Safety and convenience features include Blind spot detection, Rear traffic alert, third-generation Park assist and Traffic jam assist.
