The smartly styled Ford Mondeo rival has always been a big sales hit, primarily for two reasons: value, and space. From what we’ve seen so far, the latest version will be no different.
The entry-level 1.4 turbocharged petrol will be priced from £18,640 – that’s over £2,000 less than the cheapest Mondeo, and £3,600 less than the basic Volkswagen Passat. Like the old Superb, it looks like offering a truly… superb amount of car for the money.
That’s even before you consider how much space the Superb offers for both people and things. Rear legroom is class leading, while a 625-litre boot is over 100 litres more capacious than the already-huge load bay of a Mondeo. It looks like it’ll be easy to load items in there, too, thanks to the ‘Virtual pedal’ system A simple wave of a foot beneath the rear bumper will pop open the rear hatch – ideal if you have your hands full.
If all of that space somehow isn’t enough, then folding down the rear seat backs results in a gigantic 1,760-litre volume – we can almost hear the echo from here.
Despite the slight increase in size over the old model, the latest construction methods and materials has resulted in a 75kg reduction in weight compared to the previous model, so it promises to be faster and more economical than ever too.
