2015 Škoda Superb.jpg

Škoda Superb. 2015 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door saloon, 5-door estate. F/F, F/A, 1395, 1798, 1984 cm³ petrol, 13 kWh–1395 cm³ electric–petrol hybrid, 1598, 1968 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC). Škoda moves its flagship on to Volkswagen’s highly adaptable MQB platform. Huge stretch in wheelbase, up 80 mm on predecessor and 94 mm on Volkswagen Passat (B8), but only 28 mm more in overall length. Improved interior materials, and more commodious inside thanks to the wheelbase stretch. Conventional hatchback this time, although Superb retains its three-box proportions. A good compromise between sporty and family car in terms of performance, even in sport mode. Suspension tuned more to comfort, so some body roll on twisty roads. Steering on the light side. Estate followed saloon on sale within months. Plug-in hybrid, the Superb iV, introduced 2019, along with a facelift of the range.
