After yesterday’s first batch of spy shots depicting the all-new Superb, Skoda has released teaser images showing camouflaged prototypes.
Described as being "the best Skoda ever", the third generation modern Superb will grow in size once again and will be slotted in the "upper end of the automotive mid-class." We remind you the outgoing Superb hatchback is 4833mm long, 1817mm wide and 1462mm, with a massive 595-liter trunk space and Skoda promises its successor will be even more spacious so expect more room for the passengers and an increased cargo capacity.
Skoda says their flagship model will provide "the best values in terms of comfort, infotainment and connectivity, safety, eco-friendliness, consumption and performance." We already know the 2015 Superb will ride on a stretched MQB platform that also underpins the Volkswagen Passat B8 and will lose 75 kg (165 lbs) despite being 20mm longer and 50mm wider.
The wheelbase is expected to grow by around 80mm while the trunk will offer 625 liters with the rear seats up and 1,760 liters if you fold them down. Czech media is reporting Skoda will offer the 2015 Superb with adaptive dampers priced at €1,500 and featuring Normal, Comfort and Sport modes. The base 125 HP 1.4-liter gasoline engine model will have a starting price in Germany of around €25,000, thus making it €710 more expensive. Other motors include a 260 HP 1.8 along with 1.6- and 2.0-liter turbodiesels ranging in output from 120 HP to 190 HP. These motors will work with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional DSG sending power to the front wheels or to an optional AWD system.
The all-new Superb will be unveiled mid-February 2015 before heading to the Geneva Motor Show a month later while deliveries will commence mid-2015.
