“Superb Combi is yet another excellent vehicle by Skoda. Combi version of the Skoda Auto flagship illustrates ongoing development efforts of the company,” said Reinhard Jung, Skoda BOD Chairman. “With its specific design so typical of Skoda, outstanding spaciousnes and several Simply clever innovations it extends the tradition of Skoda Auto.”
The engine portfolio of the Superb Estate is identical with that of the Superb Sedan as recently tested by CarAdvice. All of these engines are based on direct fuel injection for low fuel consumption and emission values. The latest generation of the Haldex transmission will be featured in the all wheel drive versions of the vehicle.
Superb Estate will also be available with an optional electrically controlled two-piece panoramic sunroof.
The Skoda stand at Frankfurt will also see the brand showcase its new Yeti, Octavia LPG and newly revised Roomster design packages.
