Skoda Announces Pricing For Entry-Level Diesel Superb

Skoda Superb

The newest addition to the Škoda Superb range, the Classic 1.9 TDI PD 100bhp, is now available for ordering at Škoda retailers across the UK. Priced at £15,250, the Superb Classic TDI PD 100bhp, with its Pumpe Düse diesel technology, provides exceptional value in an outstanding, elegant car.

The 1.9 TDI 100 bhp Superb Classic is placed in the lowest diesel company car taxation band of 18 per cent. Combined with excellent levels of standard equipment, exceptional space and a great price, the newest Škoda Superb adds up to particular value for company car drivers.

Pumpe Düse diesel engines offer exceptional performance by using high-pressure injector units, a turbocharger and variable turbine geometry. This pump injection system injects fuel at extremely high pressures, for maximum efficiency and power. The 100bhp TDI PD has excellent torque, with a maximum of 250 Nm at 1,750 rpm, and combined fuel economy of 50.4 mpg. It has low CO2 emissions of 151 g/km, excellent among diesel engines.

The Superb Classic TDI PD 100bhp includes the same comprehensive standard equipment that is already available on the petrol Superb Classic models. It includes climate control with additional vents to the rear seats; remote central locking; front and rear electric windows; electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors; front and side airbags for driver and front passenger; and sound system with CD player.

Superb’s outstanding passenger space is also standard on the Classic TDI PD 100bhp. The rear seat legroom in particular is exceptional among upper-medium vehicles, translating into limousine-like rear seat comfort for even the tallest passengers.

The confirmation of pricing for the Classic TDI PD 100bhp completes the Superb range for the UK and signals that both of the Pumpe Düse diesel engines, the 100bhp and the 130bhp, are now available for ordering. There are six engine solutions for the range, three petrol and three diesel. The petrol engines include the entry-level 2.0 MPI 115bhp; the 1.8T 20v Turbo which offers 150bhp; and the top of the range 2.8 V6 193bhp. The diesel engine line up boasts a 2.5 V6 TDI to compliment the two Pumpe Düse engines, which offers 155bhp and has CO2 emissions of 192 g/km with manual gearbox.

The original Superb, first introduced in 1934, was a luxurious, stylish car owned by wealthy entrepreneurs and royalty alike. Like the first Superb, the twenty-first century Superbs are a great combination of elegance, self-confidence and advanced technology.
