More known on the new ŠKODA Superb
9th September 2014
It has already been suggested that the incoming new ŠKODA Superb could arrive with a hybrid powertrain in 2016, and now more details have been revealed on the luxury model.
The Superb represents ŠKODA’s flagship vehicle as an elegant and well-equipped saloon. The next-generation iteration is set to arrive with a host of updates to improve the experience even further. It is believed to be the first car under the Volkswagen Group umbrella to utilise a lengthened version of the group’s MQB platform, which it will share with the new Volkswagen Passat saloon.
With the new platform, the upcoming model’s length is believed to remain the same at around 4.83 metres, and the automaker will stretch the car’s wheelbase to improve interior space even further. This longer wheelbase will also mean a smoother ride at high speeds, making motorway cruises even more satisfying.
With the MQB platform at its core, the Superb should be lighter than ever. Current vehicles benefiting from the architecture boast a weight saving of up to 100kg, and a similar drop for the new saloon would boost ride comfort, handling and economy noticeably.
An official debut for the new Superb has been pencilled in for mid-2015, when full details will become known to motorists. For all the latest news from ŠKODA and to test drive its current models, enquire with Lookers in Guildford, Manchester or Stockport. Text here ...
