Using a Volkswagen Passat platform stretched by 50mm in the wheelbase, the new Superb should be a roomy, well-built alternative to other premium brands. Just over 4.8m in length, and nearly 1.8m wide, the interior space is said to be generous. Front-wheel-drive will help with packaging too.
Three petrol and three diesel engines will be available, starting with the 1.9 TDI, through to the range topping 3.2-litre V6 FSI engine we have all come to know and love. Australian specification hasn't been decided yet, but we will be familiar with the drivetrain offerings.
Based on local drives of the Roomster and Octavia (full reviews coming shortly), the Superb promises to be...um...superb.
