Details and official pictures of the new Skoda Superb have been revealed, with the Superb to be top of the pile for tech and clever gizmos
"Skoda has revealed official pictures of its new Superb, set to arrive in the UK in summer. Autoexpress were granted an early viewing and drove prototype mules in December, but only now can reveal how it looks – ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut next month – plus UK specs.
Styled by Skoda design chief Josef Kaban, the new Superb follows other new models like the Fabia by showing off a more confident, image-led look. From the front, it borrows key design themes from the bold Vision C concept car revealed at Geneva last year.
Depending on spec, front and rear passengers can control the infotainment system via iPad, there’s Apple CarPlay and, from 2016, there’ll be Qi wireless smartphone charging. Skoda hasn’t forgotten the neat touches, either, as there’s a small umbrella located in each front door, loads of boot space (625 litres when the seats are up and 1,760 litres when they’re down) and masses of rear legroom – the brand claims it’s double that of the Vauxhall Insignia. Owners can also specify ‘Virtual Pedal’ – this sees the boot open when the driver waves their foot under the rear bumper.
Skoda predicts 70 per cent of Superb sales in the UK will be to fleets, and while prices will be revealed after Geneva, we’re told to expect the line-up to range from £20,000 to £35,000 for the 280 4x4 DSG."
