With its fourth-generation Haldex clutch four-wheel drive, the new Skoda Superb Estate 4x4 offers award winning comfort and safety, whatever the weather.
Available with 1.8 TSI 160bhp and 3.6 V6 260bhp petrol engines as well as the 2.0 TDI CR 170bhp diesel, the Skoda Superb Estate 4x4 can tackle the sort of slippery conditions that would leave its two-wheel drive competitors stranded. The system transfers torque to whichever wheels have the most traction by taking signals from the ABS sensors, greatly increasing driving safety in the type of snowy and icy conditions that have gripped the UK this winter.
But the Skoda Superb Estate 4x4's capabilities aren't limited to wintry conditions. In the summer months the 4x4 technology will ensure that pulling trailers and caravans is easier, safer and more enjoyable than ever. And because drive to the rear wheels is disengaged when not needed, there's little adverse effect on fuel consumption.
The Skoda Superb Estate is already the holder of Top Gear Magazine's 'Luxury Car of the Year' Award, despite not going on sale until 26th February 2010, and the availability of four-wheel drive only adds to its broad appeal. Prices start at £22,420 for the Skoda Superb Estate 1.8 TSI 160bhp 4x4 SE.
With the Skoda Octavia Estate 4x4, Skoda Octavia Scout, Skoda Yeti 4x4 and the Skoda Superb Hatch and Estate 4x4, Skoda offers a broad range of four-wheel drive models for all needs and conditions.Published 21 January 2010
