      Skoda Working on Next-Gen Superb; Won’t be offered with a V6

      Czech car maker, Skoda, will be showcasing the Superb facelift at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo next month. Now, according to reports, Skoda has already begun working on the next gen Superb.

      The new Skoda Superb will be a “revelation” according to Winfried Vahland, Chairman, Board of Directors, Skoda Auto) . The new car will be based on the VW Group’s MQB platform and will share upto 50 percent of its parts with the Volkswagen Passat.

      For the next 10 years, the Superb will be the top of the line”, said Winfried. Like most of the other cars from Skoda, the Superb will be positioned on the outer edges of the segment.


      Similar to the current gen Superb, the next gen model will also be offered as a sedan and an estate (in international markets). But, the sedan won’t be offered with the dual sedan/hatchback tailgate boot opening. “It is too expensive,” explained Winfried.

      For the next gen model, Skoda is working to improve the aerodynamics of the car. Also, Skoda will downsize the engines available in the Superb to improve fuel efficiency. The current gen Superb is offered with a 1.8 liter turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel engine. The 3.6 liter V6 petrol motor has been already discontinued in India, and won’t be offered in the next gen model too. The new gen model will be available with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit.

      Although not much information is available, the car is likely to be launched by 2016.

      Interesting!! Came across this Scoop pic.
      It would share the platform with Passat, but some of the features It may not provide. For egs Automated Reverse Park , Start/Stop Button, etc. As Skoda doesnt provide such features.

      Sad!!! This variant was such a gem of a 4WD to drive. The engine cylinder arrangement was called VR6 (Technically) by Skoda, It was more of zig-zag way of arranging 6 cylinders. The engine was huge but very compact as It had a common head for the V, with V angle of 18 Deg(IIRC). But had to be discontinued thanks to the very costly after sales service by Skoda.

      Superb is literally the best in class vehicle when it comes to build quality and Technology. Actually speaking better than its cousin Audi, in the drivers seat.
