The 2016 Skoda Superb Combi has been officially revealed. The third generation Superb was unveiled in Prague, Czech Republic in February, and now its estate version is set for a world debut at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.
Compared to the predecessor, its wheelbase has been increased by 80 mm to 2,841 mm. Thanks to the track width being increased to 1,584 mm at the front and to 1,572 mm at the rear, the estate now offers more interior space.
The driver and passenger now get 39 mm more elbow room. Skoda claims that the headroom – 995 mm in the front and 1,001 mm in the rear, is segment-leading. The 157 mm of knee room in the rear is twice as much as the estate’s next-best rival and the elbow room has been increased by 70 mm. The boot space has been increased by 27 litres to 660 litres and the total boot space with the back seats folded down reaches 1,950 litres.
Like the hatchback, the Combi also features Dynamic Chassis Control. The new EU6 engines make the all-new estate more powerful and up to 30% more efficient than the outgoing model. Engine options should include a range of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also be available on the range.
First markets, including Czech Republic, will get the all-new Superb Combi in September 2015.
