Skoda Superb Combi inherited its design form the Vision C concept which was modernized for the serial production. Several changes in the construction took place. For instance, wheelbase became 80mm wider and so did the front and back wheel tracks which got 39 and 55 extra millimeters respectively. You can feel comfortable in long business or family trips as new Skoda Superb Combi has more interior volume, compared to the second generation model. Three adults will have enough space for their legs in the back. Moreover, it now has more room in the trunk: if you fold down back seats you will get 1950 litres of space against 1865 litres you had before. What is more, Skoda offers its customers the opportunity of installing optional electro driven Monroe shock-absorbers that allow a driver to vary the level of sprung softness form standard to comfort and sports.

There are five variants of petrol engines: 1.4L one with 125hp or 150hp, 1.8L that has 180hp and 2.0L with 220hp or 280hp.

There is also a choice between a front-wheel and a four-wheel drive.

The interior of the new Skoda Superb Combi is neat and elegant, without any experiments. Regardless of the fact that there is more room inside of the car now, door pockets and the glove box are not that big but all the necessary accessories fit there fine. The control panel is analog and suits this car perfectly. Nevertheless, a driver will have plenty of up-to-date technologies at his disposal.
