Skoda has released the first images of its all-new Superb estate. The practical family model will reach UK showrooms in September, following its official debut at the Frankfurt motor show.
Arriving hot on the heels of the new Superb hatchback, the estate model is likely to offer greater appeal to families, with its simply cavernous 660-litre rear load space. Fold the rear seats flat and that rises to 1950 litres, making it one of the most commodious cars available at any price point.
Externally the new model shares its styling with the hatchback model, though the rear-end design is now sharper, taking its inspiration from the smaller Octavia estate. The estate profile increases rear headroom over the hatch, matching the acres of legroom the model offers.
The range of engines is carried directly over from the hatchback model, so expect a selection of frugal turbocharged petrol and diesel offerings, including a 123bhp 1.4-litre TSI and a 187bhp 2.0-litre TDI. Four-wheel-drive will be available in conjunction with selected engines, along with a twin-clutch automatic gearbox.
Buyers will be able to specify their Superb estate to levels of luxury unheard of on previous models, with highlights including a full-length panoramic sunroof and Skoda’s upmarket Laurin & Klement trim level.
Order books for the new Skoda Superb estate open in June. It is expected to carry a premium of around £1,200 over equivalent hatchback models, with prices starting from around £20,000.
