Skoda will launch the next generation variant of its flagship model, the Superb, at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015. And looking at the way Skoda has been designing its recent cars, the Superb is likely to do justice to its name once again. The new Skoda Superb will be based on company’s Vision C Concept that was showcased in Geneva Motor Show this year.
The latest report from automotive website Caradvice reveals various details of this upcoming Skoda. The power mill on the Superb is expected to be a 2-litre turbo charged diesel unit that would put out about 118 hp of power and 400Nm or torque. A 2-litre turbo charged petrol unit would also make way and is likely to produce 256 hp of power and 380Nm of torque. These engines are introduced to comply with European emission targets.
According to Caradvice’s sources, the new Superb will share the MQB architecture with the Volkswagen Passat. Due to the new MQU architecture, the new Superb is likely to be more spacious than the current version. The new model will be available as a sedan and an estate (in international markets).
