Skoda chief Winfried Vahland recently divulged some information on the next generation Skoda Superb. While these details can be best described as preliminary, they do seem to give us a fair idea of what the next car would be like.
Earlier this month, we got to know from Skoda’s head designer Jozef Kaban the next generation Superb will boast of a striking design and now, Skoda boss Winfried Vahland has said that the car will be a “revelation” in terms of its design and styling. He also said 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.
However, the sedan/hatchback tailgate for the car’s boot opening will be dumped. This will be done to ensure that the costs remain under check. Also, the car will no longer boast of a 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.
The all new model of the Skoda Superb will be underpinned by Volkswagen’s MQB platform and the could share as many as fifty percent of its components with the cousin Passat. It is expected that akin to the all-new Octavia, the Superb will be larger than other vehicles in its class and Skoda will aim to improve the Superb’s aerodynamic efficiency with the next model.
