The 2015 Skoda Superb is being teased in several official sketches ahead of the model’s reveal programmed for February. The Czech marque is describing their forthcoming flagship model as the “best Skoda ever” which will once again grow in size despite losing 75 kg (165 lbs). It will ride on a stretched version of the MQB platform which has also underpinned the all-new Volkswagen Passat B8. The new Superb is going to be 20mm longer and 50mm wider than the outgoing model and will feature a wheelbase stretched by approximately 80mm. Cargo capacity will grow to 625 liters with the rear seats in position and 1,760 liters with them folded.
The 2015 Skoda Superb base model will cost €25,000 and will come with a four-cylinder 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 125 HP. More expensive versions are getting a 1.8 with 260 HP while frugal 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesel will be available as well and produce between 120 HP to 190 HP. All engines will be coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission but at an additional cost the client will be able to opt for a DSG. Front-wheel drive is going to be standard while an all-wheel drive system will cost extra.
Skoda has already announced the new Superb will be unveiled online in February, followed by a public debut a month later at the Geneva Motor Show. Deliveries are slated to kick off mid-2015.
