The future generation of the Skoda Superb is getting ready to be officially unveiled, but until that will happen, the carmaker has released the first images and details with the model.
The 2016 Skoda Superb will grow in size once again and it will still be offered as a flagship model. This will be riding on a stretched version of the MQB, which is also used on the new-gen Volkswagen Passat. The vehicle will be 20 mm longer and 50 mm wider than the current version but, despite this, it will be losing 75 kg from its weight. The wheelbase will grow by approximately 80 mm.
The luggage capacity of the new Skoda Superb will stand at 625 liter with the rear seats up and it will reach 1,760 liters with the seats folded. The model will get adaptive dampers with Normal, Comfort and Sport modes, for an extra 1,500 euros. As far as the engine lineup goes, the cheapest model will get a 1.4 liter gasoline burner, with 125 HP, as this will be priced in Germany from approximately 25,000 euros.
Other units will include a 1.8 liter gasoline and two diesels, with 1.6 liters in displacement and 2.0 liters in displacement. These will range between 120 HP and 190 HP. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and a DSG. Front-wheel drive will be offered as standard and all-wheel drive will come as an option. The new generation of the Skoda Superb will be unveiled in mid-February and it will be making its public debut a month later, during the Geneva Motor Show. Deliveries will begin next summer.
