The current Skoda Superb is one of the best cars on sale – but it doesn’t really like to shout about it.
This all-new one for 2015, then, has a bit of work to do – after all, just 700,000 people around the world have bought first- and second-generation Superbs around the world, which isn’t a colossal amount.
To whip up a bit more excitement about its replacement, Skoda has released these camouflaged teaser shots before it’s unveiled properly in February 2015.
It promises to have more interior and boot space, and the current Superb is hilariously over-endowed in both these respects already. Hop in the back of a Superb in 2014 and you’ll think you’re in a presidential limo or something akin to a Mercedes S-Class; you can really stretch out that much. Once in the back of the 2015 model you’ll probably have enough room to play a game of squash against your rear-seat companion.
Details on this new Superb are scant, but it should be lighter and more efficient than the current one thanks to its use of Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform and range of engines (seen in everything from the Volkswagen Golf to the Audi A3). This should also make it even more refined than the existing car, which already earns praise for its cosseting ride and refinement.
Skoda is certainly setting expectations high for the 2015 version, as the Czech company’s CEO, Winfried Vahland, said: “The new Superb is the best Skoda ever.” No pressure, then.
The 2015 Skoda Superb will be unveiled in the middle of February 2015 and will go on display to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March. First deliveries are expected in Autumn 2015.
