Likely to offer greater appeal to families than the hatch version annouced last month, the new Superb Estate comes with a 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, although 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, meaning a selction of efficient turbo charged petrol and diesel engines 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 an twin-clutch automatic gearbox. All engines are EU6 rated, meaning the latest model is more powerful and at the same time up to 30 per cent more efficient than its predecessor.
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 ŠKODA’s upmarket Laurin & Klement trim level.
You can order your new Superb from Listers ŠKODA Coventry in June. It carries a premium of around £1,200 over equivalent hatchback models, with prices expected to start from only £20,000.
