Skoda has released official teaser images showing camouflaged prototypes of the third-generation Superb saloon, that will continue growing in size.
The company describes it as “the best Skoda ever” positioned in the “upper end of the automotive mid-class.”
The 2015 Superb rides on a stretched MQB platform that also underpins the new Volkswagen Passat B8 and will lose compared to the current model 75kg, while reportedly 20mm longer and 50mm wider.
The outgoing Superb is already pretty big, the hatchback is 4833mm long, 1817mm wide and 1462mm, with a very respectable 595-litre boot space. The new model will offer even more room for the passengers and increased cargo capacity.
Nothing is official, but the wheelbase grows reportedly by 80mm, while the boot will holf 625 litres with the rear seats in place and up to 1,760 litres when folded down.
Engine choices will include a range of petrol and diesel units with power ranging from 125hp to 260 hp linked to either a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional DSG automatic. AWD system will be optional again.
Public debut is next March at the Geneva Motor with first deliveries scheduled for mid-2015.
