Skoda Superb Estate 4x4
From Skoda press: Building on its multi-award winning product line-up, Škoda has announced the introduction of a four-wheel drive 2.0 TDI CR 140bhp engine with automatic DSG transmission to the Superb.
The advanced four-wheel drive system is designed to tackle those challenging conditions that would leave two-wheel drive competitors stranded. Power distribution is controlled electronically by a fourth-generation Haldex clutch. Under normal traction conditions, 96% of the total power is directed to the front axle. In adverse weather conditions – similar to those experienced in the UK last winter – the Haldex system reacts in a split second to redirect power to those wheels with better traction, greatly increasing driving safety.
The 4×4′s capabilities aren’t limited to wintery conditions. In summer months the 4×4 technology will ensure that towing caravans and trailers is easier and safer, and because drive to the rear wheels is disengaged when not required, there’s little adverse effect on fuel consumption.
