Skoda teases new Superb in estate guise ahead of November debut
The new family estate for 2024 will come with a choice of mild and plug-in-hybrid powertrains
Skoda has released its most revealing pictures yet of the new 2024 Skoda Superb, ahead of its full unveiling in November.
In the latest images, the Superb Estate is still concealed by camouflage, but several design details are visible. Notably, the front showcases a three-dimensional grille similar in design to the Skoda Enyaq, and is flanked by headlights featuring the latest LED technology. Like the electric SUV, the car’s grille also features Skoda’s badge indentation in the middle.
Below it is another grille with isolated air intakes on the sides.
From the side, both the saloon and estate models exhibit a large rear overhang, which is joined by a razor-sharp crease which runs the full length of the car. The C-shaped rear light unit, reminiscent of the new Fabia, adds a dynamic light graphic for improved visibility during nighttime driving.
The interior remains hidden for now, but is expected to be a complete departure from the current model, aligning more closely with Skoda's all-electric models, and with a focus on touchscreen infotainment that’s easy to navigate.
Contrary to expectations, there will be no fully electric Superb in this generation. Instead, the car will be equipped with the latest generation of VW Group's combustion engines, with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, plus mild and plug-in hybrid configurations.
Diesel options will include two 2.0-litre engines, producing either 148bhp or 192bhp.
Petrol-powered variants meanwhile will come in three different options. For the first time, a mild-hybrid choice will be available, featuring a 1.5-litre TSI engine with 148bhp. Additionally, there are two turbocharged 2.0-litre units with either 204bhp or 265bhp.
For those interested in a plug-in hybrid version, Skoda will offer the Superb with a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine paired with a 25.7kWh battery. Skoda says this setup will provide an electric driving range of over 62 miles.
The next-generation Superb is expected to hit the UK market by early 2024.
