Dutch media is reporting the recently introduced Skoda Superb will eventually spawn a Scout version.

It will obviously be based on the unreleased Superb Combi but will be differentiated by the raised suspension, plastic body cladding and bespoke wheels. It will probably come with a standard all-wheel drive system, stainless steel underbody protection and slightly different front & rear bumpers. It will have a lot in common with the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack from where it could possibly inherit the XDS+ system applying the brakes to the inside wheels for better stability while cornering.

Before the Superb Scout, Skoda will unveil the Superb Comb at a special presentation programmed for July which will be followed in September by a public debut at Frankfurt Motor Show. It will look virtually the same as the hatchback but with a slightly elongated rear end to boost trunk size beyond the standard model's 625-liter capacity with the rear seats up and 1,760 liters after folding them down.

Taking into account the Octavia Scout came out more than a year after the Combi version, chances are the Superb Scout will be introduced by mid-2016.
