We reported in detail when some details on the upcoming 2016 Skoda Superb emerged recently. Now, a speculative rendering of the next gen Superb has surfaced on the web world.
The next gen 2016 Superb will be based on the Volkswagen’s much hyped MQB platform and the car will share as many as 50 percent of its components with the next gen Volkswagen Passat, which will be launched before the Skoda flagship next year.
There are good chances that the 2016 Skoda Superb’s wheelbase will be longer than the current model by 75 mm.
All this info comes from Skoda chief Winfried Vahland, who shared these preliminary details with media recently.
Winfried Vahland has said that the car will be a “revelation” in terms of its design and styling. He further added that the Superb will continue to remain the flagship model in the VW Group owned Czech car maker’s product portfolio for at least ten years more. The car will go on sale in both sedan and estate body variants. Also, Skoda will aim to improve the Superb’s aerodynamic efficiency with the next model.
However, the sedan/hatchback tailgate for the boot opening will be dumped. This would ensure that the manufacturing costs remain under check. The next gen 2016 Skoda Superb won’t get the V6 engine option and the biggest engine on offer will be a 4 cylinder, 2.0 litre unit that will not just boost the car’s fuel economy but will also help the manufacturer in lowering the curb weight.
