The new Skoda Superb Outdoor, said to hold its own when going “beyond paved roads”, is the latest addition to the Skoda Superb wagon range.

The Skoda Superb Outdoor design package, appearing identical to the Skoda wagon spied in the snow earlier this year, includes new “robust” synthetic front and rear bumpers, wheel arch trim and doorsills, all finished in grey, as well as a larger front air intake and round fog lights.

The Czech brand’s modest take on the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack and the Audi A6 Allroad is available with both front- and all-wheel-drive but misses out on steel undertrays and any changes to suspension or ride height.

Despite the mere aesthetic tweaks, Skoda says the Superb Outdoor is the “perfect all-rounder for town and country” for those “with an active lifestyle”.

Skoda Australia’s Karl Gehling told CarAdvice the Outdoor is being considered for our market.

Currently in Australia there are seven Skoda Superb wagon variants starting at $40,990 for the 118kW/250Nm turbocharged petrol 1.8-litre four-cylinder 118TSI Ambition.

The 2012 Audi A6 Allroad is due to arrive in showrooms in the third quarter of this year a few months ahead of the Passat Alltrack, which is set to launch at the end of 2012.
