The first Skoda Superb Estate rolled off the production line on Monday 9th November 2009 in Kvasiny, Czech Republic - an Elegance 2.0 TDI CR 170bhp DSG DPF in Satin Grey.
The most luxurious estate car yet to wear the Skoda badge offers a class-leading load volume of up to 1,865 litres (633 litres with the rear seats up). A choice of three petrol and three diesel engines will be available in the Superb Estate, plus manual and DSG transmissions - the same engine range as is available in the Skoda Superb hatch (launched September 2008).
The Skoda Superb Estate is 4,838 mm long, 1,817 wide and 1,510 high - comfortably the most spacious and practical car in the upper-medium segment. In keeping with Skoda's tradition of offering great value for money, the estate has a number of new optional features, including a keyless entry and ignition system and a revised version of the hatchback's award-winning Park Assist system that allows the estate to parallel park in an even tighter space than before. An electronically operated boot opening and panoramic sunroof are also available.
Since its launch in 2008 the Skoda Superb hatch has found over 3,000 homes in the UK (up to October 2009). Worldwide, Skoda has delivered 33,434 Skoda Superbs to customers from January through to October 2009 - 78% more than it had sold over the same period of the previous year.
Production started with left-hand drive vehicles and right-hand drive production will follow in January 2010.Published 10 November 2009
