The new Skoda Superb Combi is 4,838 mm long, 1,817 mm wide, and 1,481 mm high. Including the roof rails, delivered as standard and available either anodized or black, the car’s height rises to 1,510 mm. The outstanding loading capacity is bigger than anything seen yet in the segment: the luggage compartment holds 633 litres, expanding to a cavernous 1,865 litres when the rear seats are folded down. The width of the tailgate is large enough to accommodate bulky items. The low loading sill, a mere 600 mm above the ground, makes handling baggage easy.
The wealth of interior equipment and fittings in the five-door estate matches that in the car’s predecessor. And numerous smart details have been added:
This is the first time it has been possible to equip a Skoda vehicle with the KESSY keyless locking and ignition system. A transmitter in the body of the key communicates with the control unit in the car and unlocks the doors when the handles are touched. The car can also be locked without using a key or remote control central locking by pressing a button on the external handle. The engine can be started and turned off with a button located on the right-hand side of the steering wheel column. To start the engine, the driver first has to press the clutch pedal (in cars with manual transmission) or the brake pedal (if the transmission is automatic).
