Skoda’s upcoming third generation Superb has been scooped for the first time in a production body ahead of its unveiling in Prague in mid-February and appearance at the Geneva motor show in March.
“The first Superb appeared in 2001 and Skoda has sold more than 700,000 models globally by latest.”
The new generation Superb features completely new design language, new technology, improved build quality, higher functionality, more rear passenger room and class leading boot space of 625 litres than before will also play a major part in the Superb’s attraction.
New Skoda Super Upgrade
Compared to its predecessor, the new Superb is 20mm longer and 50mm wider with stretched 80mm longer wheelbase. The revised styling and altered proportions makes the Superb an exceptionally spacious car.
Skoda confirmed the new Superb is based on Volkswagen‘s MQB platform which used in latest VW Golf and Passat which has “shifted to the upper end of the automotive mid-class”. The new Skoda Superb uses high strength steels by a more significant 45 percent and reduced the weight by an average of 75kg across the range.
Not confirmed by Skoda but possible that Skoda will keep the ‘twin-door system’ of the current model that allows the boot to open on its own or in tandem with the window.
These improvements made the “Skoda Superb the best Skoda ever” says Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland.
Superb also claims the improved driving dynamics and overall quality. Skoda is very confident and said “The latest generation of our flagship will appeal to new groups of customers in the business and private sector; the qualities of the Superb emphasize the strong brand’s values and our future point.”
Apart from Superb, Skoda’s new supermini Fabia is also coming to UK in January 2015 to compete with award winning Ford Fiesta.
The brand is also celebrating after building more than one million cars in a single year for the first time in company’s 119 years history which is truly tremendous.
The CEO have commented ” a milestone of which the whole team can be proud and we will not become complacent about this success because Skoda will continue to grow.”
