The Skoda Superb Scout has been rumoured from early this year when the third generation Superb hatchback was revealed. Recent reports claim that the Czech automaker will eventually roll out a Scout variant for its flagship model in the near future.
An exclusive rendering of the 2016 Skoda Superb Scout, work of SteeringNews.com’s in-house rendering artist Shoeb Kalania, previews how a high-riding variant of the third generation Superb would look like.
Changes, as seen in the rendering, should include a reworked front fascia with modified bumper and fog lamps, redesigned fog lamps and silver-coloured guards. On the sides, we expect to see extended wheel arches, door sills (exterior) and protective side mouldings.
A report released last month revealed that Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland is interested in launching a Superb Scout. Expect the engine options to include a 132-kW (177-hp) 1.8 TSI petrol, 110-kW (148-hp) 2.0 TDI diesel and a 140-kW (188-hp) 2.0 TDI diesel. Depending on the engine option, the transmission paired could be a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DSG, but four-wheel drive layout should be standard.
Expect prices to start from just around £27,000, to slot between the SE L Executive and L&K Estate models, in the UK. Official debut can be expected to happen sometime next year.
