The first series-produced Superb Combi - first previewed in August 2009 and unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show - offers a really generous space: the volume of the luggage compartment of this upper-medium class vehicle is 633 litres, and 1,865 litres with the rear seats folded down. It also features a loading edge height of only 600 mm and an extendable floor section.
The Superb Combi is 4,838 mm long, 1,817 wide and 1,510 high. The basic price of the vehicle with a gasoline engine (1.4 TSI/92 kW) and a six-speed manual transmission starts at CZK 589,900 (in the Czech Republic), equivalent to about 34k US Dollars.
Additional highlights include the two-part panoramic sunroof with sliding front part, electrical opening and closing of the rear door with lighting, an advanced 4 x 4 drive and also, in the course of 2010, a keyless KESSY system for locking, unlocking and starting the car.
The engine portfolio for the Superb Combi is identical with that for the Superb limousine.
Until today Skoda has delivered altogether 33,434 Superbs to customers from January till October (of which 623 first-generation vehicles), 78.2 % more than it had over the same period of last year. Besides the Kvasiny plant, the Škoda Superb is produced in China and assembled in India, Russia, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine.
