Skoda Superb customers can look forward to high levels of specification, no matter which of the three trim levels they choose.

Trim levels will be comprised of S, SE and Elegance, marking a shift away from the badging of other Skoda models.  Each specification level provides customers with high levels of standard equipment valued between £1,500 and £2,000 more than the step in price between spec levels.

These features and more make the new Superb one of the best equipped cars in the upper-medium sector.  In addition to offering customers these very high levels of standard specification, the pricing is very competitive against the mainstream competition.

The Superb engine line-up is a comprehensive mix of petrol and diesel units that cater for the needs of every type of customer.  These include the new 1.4 TSI petrol engine that offers an outstanding combination of greater fuel economy and low CO2 emissions while delivering 125bhp in a smaller, lighter engine than previously offered.

In addition, for the first time on Superb, there is a new CR (Common Rail) diesel engine with 170 bhp, a winning combination of great fuel economy, low CO2 emission and smooth diesel performance.

Also on offer are DSG gearboxes, with a six-speed DSG standard on the 3.6 V6 (at 260 bhp, it is the most powerful road-going vehicle Skoda has produced to date), and optional with the 2.0 TDI engines.  For the first time, Skoda will offer a new seven-speed DSG gearbox with the 1.8 TSI engine.

The new Superb offers class-leading interior space, with more rear leg room than even an S-class Mercedes.  Not only is the space for driver and passengers enormous, the boot volume of 565 litres (with rear seats up) is class leading.

Adding to the appeal of the new Superb is Twindoor, designed and patented by Skoda engineers and unique to Skoda.  At the touch of a button, Twindoor enables Superb to be either a hatch or a saloon, thereby suiting the needs of a wider range of customers.

A large number of safety features are standard on the new Superb.  All models have seven airbags:  driver and passenger front and side airbags, curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag; ESP is standard across the range.  This has helped Superb achieve five stars in EuroNCAP testing for driver and occupant protection.
