2016 Skoda Superb spotted testing in China image

Spy photographers have managed to capture the new generation of the Skoda Superb on camera while it was being tested out, in China.

The development of a new generation Skoda Superb is no longer a surprise for anyone as the model in question has been already confirmed and even teased by the Czech based automaker. The vehicle is now getting even close to its official unveil as it is undergoing some final testing, in China. The 2016 Skoda Superb is believed to ride on the same stretched MQB platform as the new generation of the Volkswagen Passat and to get an evolutionary design, influenced by the one of its smaller brothers, Octavia, Rapid and Fabia.

The model in question will be 20 mm longer and 50 mm wider but, despite this, it will drop up to 75 kg from its weight. The cargo capacity stands at 625 liters and it can go up to 1,760 liters with the rear seats folded. The engine lineup of the upcoming flagship model made by Skoda will include the 1.4 liter petrol engine, offered in the entry-level model, with 125 HP (92 kW), along with the 1.8 TSI with 260 HP and the 1.6L diesel with 120 HP (88 kW) and the 2.0L diesel, with 190 HP. The new Superb will be making its public debut in Geneva, this March, but it is expected to be unveiled one month earlier.
