All-new 2015 Skoda Superb Combi revealed with a 660 litre trunk

Skoda unveiled the third-generation Superb saloon back in February.

The new model was both visually and technically a big improvement again, featuring a more upscale design and tech.

Here is finally the more practical estate version, the Superb Combi, which is scheduled to arrive in September.

The new Superb Combi offers the best interior space in its segment.

Based on MQB technology, the wheelbase has been extended by 80 mm to 2,841 mm, while the track width has increased to 1,584 mm at the front and to 1,572 mm at the rear.

As a result the driver and passenger have 39 mm more elbow room than before, the headroom in the front is 995 mm and 1,001 mm in the rear – more than in any other model in the segment.

The boot volume also sets a new benchmark: 660 litres, representing an increase of 27 litres compared to the previous model. When the back seats are folded down, the spacious giant’s boot volume reaches an impressive 1,950 litres.

Compared to the outgoing model the new Combi is also up to 75kg lighter.

The entry-level model is powered by the same 118bhp turbo diesel four-cylinder and the most powerful diesel engine will be the 188bhp 2-litre turbo diesel.

Petrol engines include 148bhp 1.4-litre TSI, followed by the 2-litre TSI in 217bhp guise. Most powerful option is the 276bhp 2-litre TSI.

Power is sent to the front wheels as standard, but the optional four-wheel drive is also available. Six-speed gearbox manual is standard, while a six-speed DSG is optional.

Public debut is at the 66th International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt with market launch in the same month. Prices are expected to start from £20k.
