2007 Škoda Superb.jpg

Škoda Superb. 2001–8 (prod. 44,708 for 2006 only, including Roomster). 4-door saloon. F/F, 1781, 1984 cm³ petrol, 1896, 1968 cm³ diesel (4 cyl. OHC), 2771 cm³ petrol, 2496 cm³ diesel (V6 DOHC). Czech rebody of Red Chinese long-wheelbase Volkswagen Passat, developed for the Czech president—it was felt a stretched Octavia was not fitting. Very roomy—reported to have more legroom than a Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse at launch—and very cheap, although dynamically not much different from Passat. Favoured not just by one president, but by British minicab drivers who appreciate the space and value; excellent fuel economy from diesels. Mild facelift 2006; Laurin & Klement trim added that year, harking back to one of Škoda’s forebears. Central section of Superb adapted to Shanghai Volkswagen Passat Lingyu in November 2005 for the Chinese market.
