Too bad, still no combi version. The facelift Superb though subtle but somehow makes it looks more attractive. It will be great if the hybrid, combi and scout version make it here.
Side by side comparison, and I have to say the facelift is more elegance looking...
For the hybrid version, the annual road tax will not be as cheap as a 1.4T is supposed to be, no thanks to the unique formula for hybrid vehicle by LTA...
A petrol-electric car uses a combined conventional gasoline engine and electric motor. The Road Tax payable is based on the engine capacity or the maximum motor power rating, whichever is higher.
Annual road tax for 1,495cc = [$500 + (1495 - 1000) * $0.75] * 0.782 = $682
Annual road tax for 85KW motor = [$950 + (85 - 70) * $24] * 0.782 = $1,025
In comparison, annual road tax for existing 220ps 2.0T (1,984cc) is $1,194
It’s an estate, not SUV.
Something it been, just like Volvo XC70 is to the V70.
Aside from the usual plastic body cladding you’ll also find on the heavily related Volkswagen Passat Alltrack, the Superb Scout features a reworked suspension adding 15 millimeters (0.6 inches) of ground clearance. Skoda has gone a step further as there’s even an off-road mode for when the going gets tough, while the underbody protection for the engine and undercarriage should come in handy when dealing with bumpy terrain.
Good point. Hope the price will also reduce by 10k. But what about the gearbox, maybe no longer the 6sp wet?
The new 2.0 TSI outputting 140 kW (190 PS) features a 7‑speed DSG as standard.
Basing on the torque rating of 320 Nm (30 Nm lesser than whats available in the current 2.0T), it should be the new DQ380 (wet clutch), instead of the current DQ250 (6 spd wet clutch). A good upgrade in term of GB, and paired with the lower horsepower and torque rating, high chance of it getting into band B ($0 VES surcharge).
even reduce 20K you will buy ??
I would prefer the current 220 ps / 350 Nm engine.
But if SCS can bring in the new 280 ps / 380 Nm version (same configuration as the VW Arteon), and price it at say $160K+, should not be difficult to have ready buyer for it. (I might be one of them).
Especially love the Wagon version.. and i think the interior beats the new Audi A4...
I always prefer Superb Combi over the sedan (officially known as hatch) for 2 main reasons:
- Practicality (larger and more usable boot space)
- Full length panoramic roof
Owning several sedan and SUV / MPV over the past 20 years, these 2 are now on the top of my wish list...
if u can plug in, better to get all electric, no?
Full electric version not available for Superb yet. The only full EV in current Skoda line up is the new Citigo iV.
