Skoda's flagship model is about to get a lot more interesting in terms of design as it will rub off the patriarchal styling of the outgoing model and replace it with a more fresh look. The dual opening of the trunk has been removed thus granting a more appealing rear end for the Superb which will be a liftback just like its smaller brother, the Octavia.
Set to ride on a stretched version of the MQB platform, the 2015 Skoda Superb will be largely based on the Volkswagen Passat B8 and compared to the model it's set to replace it will be 20mm longer and 50mm wider, despite shaving off up to 75 kg (165 lbs). The increased dimensions will boost trunk space to 625 liters when the rear seats are in position and to 1,760 liter if folded. It will also be more spacious inside as the wheelbase is set to grow by 80mm so there's going to be additional legroom for rear passengers.
Skoda has already announced the all-new Superb will be revealed mid-February 2015, followed by a Geneva Motor Show public debut in March. Sales of the Czech sedan will begin mid-2015 at a starting price estimated at €25,000.
