A special visual highlight is provided by exterior details in Unique Dark Chrome, for example a new 2D logo on the bonnet and the lettering on the tailgate. With a drag coefficient of cd 0.25 the all-new Superb Estateis the most aerodynamic Škoda estate car ever. The fine-tuning of the body design and numerous specific tweaks have helped reduce its drag coefficient by 15 per cent and added to the model’s distinguished looks.

New interior with 13-inch display, a tidy centre console and +30 litres of luggage space
The interior of the Superb Estate features a free-standing infotainment display measuring 13 inches and a tidy centre console, as the selector lever has moved to the steering column. A head-up display is available as an option for the first time. The Škoda Smart Dials and the voice assistant Laura, soon to be complemented by ChatGPT, make light work of controlling numerous vehicle and infotainment functions, providing information that goes beyond the car’s ecosystem. New elements include 15-watt wireless fast-charging and simultaneous ventilating of a smartphone, as well as back-friendly Ergo seats with ten pneumatically controlled massage cushions. The Superb Estate also features the new range structure with Design Selections, themed option packages and individual options. The Superb is well equipped for long distances, with a luggage capacity of 690 litres – 30 litres more than its predecessor. Headroom has also increased.

On top of that, the 1.5 TSI is also available with mild-hybrid technology – a first for the Superb. Moreover, there are also two other petrol engines as well as two diesel units on offer. Their respective top variants (265 PS and 193 PS) come with all-wheel drive as standard. The new Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC Plus) blends comfort and driving dynamics, while the second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights provide even better illumination of the road ahead.

New Superb Estate primed to continue the success story
The all-new Superb Estate, produced at the Volkswagen Group plant in the Slovak capital, Bratislava, is set to build on the success of its predecessors. Škoda first offered a Estate as part of the second modern Superb generation in 2009. In the model’s third modern generation, this body style took off: the 2016 Estate had a share of around 54 per cent of a total of around 860,000 vehicles produced. In Germany, Škoda’s largest single market worldwide, more than 90 per cent of all Superb vehicles delivered to customers were Estates. The Superb Estate has also earned its share of the numerous international awards won by the model series.

Exterior: Signature design with improved aerodynamics

  • New design elements: new octagonal Škoda grille, additional crystalline elements and Unique Dark Chrome accents
  • Aerodynamic fine-tuning: most aerodynamic Škoda Estate car ever, thanks to a drag coefficient lowered by 15 per cent to 0.25
  • More space: Superb Estate has grown by 40 millimetres in length providing even more room for passengers and luggage

Škoda Auto has further refined the design of its flagship ICE model and reinterpreted signature design elements such as the Škoda grille. The all-new Superb Estate also comes with second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights featuring the brand’s hallmark crystalline elements, which also adorn the newly slimmed down LED tail lights. Body modifications such as a more steeply raked windscreen and a more streamlined roofline have improved aerodynamics by 15 per cent over the predecessor. Thanks to an increase in length by 40 millimetres the new Superb Estate is now also more spacious than ever.

Refined design and LED Matrix beam headlights with 36 individual light segments
The all-new Superb Estate now comes with a striking, new octagonal Škoda grille design. Its frame is finished in Unique Dark Chrome, just like the Škoda logo on the bonnet, the front apron’s decorative trim strips and the lettering on the tailgate. The brand’s hallmark crystalline elements also adorn Škoda’s new flagship ICE model, for example in the slimmed-down LED tail lights. In the optional top variant, these include an animated Coming/Leaving Home function (standard on SE L and L&K). The second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights (standard on SE L and L&K) deliver even more light than their predecessors with the new Crystallinium element lending them a dash of turquoise colour for a distinctive flair. Two headlamp modules arranged side by side contain a bi-LED module for full beam and dipped beam and an inner Matrix beam module with a total of 36 light segments. The static cornering light also has a crystal-like design, and underneath, a slender LED strip serves as the position light, daytime running light and indicator, creating a distinctive light signature. An all-weather light mode takes over the role of the fog lights.

The most aerodynamic Škoda estate ever with a cd of 0.25
With a drag coefficient of cd 0.25, the aerodynamic efficiency of the all-new Superb Estate has improved by 15 per cent over its predecessor, making it the most aerodynamic estate car Škoda has ever developed. Modifications include a more steeply raked windscreen, a more streamlined roofline, an elongated roof spoiler with side finlets and redesigned exterior mirrors. These are complemented by aerodynamically refined wheels and a front bumper with air curtains, optimised air intakes and separation edges on the taillight and rear bumper. An electrically operated active shutter behind the central front air intake regulates the airflow as needed to keep the engine at its ideal temperature. Another active feature is automatically adjusted front brake cooling. This takes advantage of the airflow from the radiator fan. Optimised deflectors ahead of the front wheels and upgraded underbody covers further improve the airflow under the vehicle.

Even more space and six new colours
The Superb Estate has grown by 40 millimetres in length and 5 millimetres in heightLuggage capacity has increased by 30 litres over the predecessor. Headroom in the interior has grown as well. Škoda offers a total of six metallic and two solid colours. Six of these colours are new: the solid colour Pure White and the metallic finishes Pebble Silver, Midnight Black, Cobalt Blue, Carmine Red and Ice Tea Yellow. Energy Blue and Graphite Grey metallic remain in the portfolio. The range of standard alloy wheels extends from the silver 17-inch Mintaka basic wheels to optional 19-inch wheels.

The ambient lighting feature comes as standard with the Lounge and Suite Design Selections, offering ten independently selectable colours: one set for the dashboard and both the front and rear door panels, and another set for the front and rear footwells plus the storage compartments in all the doors. The Superb Estate now comes with the KESSY Advanced function, which also adds recess lighting for the exterior door handles. This feature is available as an option on SE Technology and standard on the SE L and L&K.

Powertrains: Six efficient engines, debut of mild-hybrid tech, improved plug-in hybrid with over 62 miles of electric range

  • Power outputs: ranging from 150 PS to 265 PS, DSG as standard, top diesel and the top petrol model come with all-wheel drive
  • Improved plug-in hybrid: second generation offers more than 62 miles of electric range
  • Wide range of powertrains: 1.5 TSI with mild-hybrid technology, plus two 2.0 TSI petrol engines and two 2.0 TDI diesels
  • Well-tuned chassis: DCC Plus adaptive chassis control for even better comfort and improved driving dynamics

The new Škoda Superb Estate is available with six different powertrains with outputs ranging from 150 PS to 265 PS. Three petrol engines, including a 1.5 TSI now benefiting from mild-hybrid technology, are joined by two diesels. The Superb Estate iV features a second-generation plug-in hybrid drive that enables an all-electric range of more than 62 miles as well as DC charging. All models come with DSG. All‑wheel drive is standard on the top diesel and the top petrol model. The improved DCC Plus adaptive chassis control now supports an even wider range of damping characteristics.

Plug-in hybrid model with larger high-voltage battery and 1.5 TSI petrol engine
In the second-generation plug-in hybrid drive, Škoda now combines the electric motor with a 150 PS1.5 TSI petrol engine, for a joint system output of 204 PS. This power is transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed DSG. Another new feature is the high-voltage battery with a gross capacity of 25.7 kWh, around twice as much as in the predecessor model. As a result, the vehicle’s all-electric range increases by 24 miles to more than 62 miles on the WLTP cycle. The battery can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in circa 2.5 hours, with a maximum charging rate of up to 11 kW at domestic wallboxes and AC charging points. For DC charging, the maximum charging rate is up to 50 kW. (The value for the customer-relevant charging process is 40 kW, determined in accordance with DIN 70080.) Recharging the battery from 10 to 80 per cent takes circa 25 minutes. The PHEV’s fuel tank for the petrol engine has a capacity of 45 litres.

Three petrol engines, two diesels and DSG for all
In addition to the Superb Estate iV, three petrol engines and two diesels are available. All are mated to a 7-speed DSG. The entry-level 1.5 TSI petrol engine is the first in the model series to feature mild-hybrid technology with a closed system consisting of a 48-volt belt-driven starter-generator and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery. The battery is located under the front passenger seat. Energy recovered during braking supports the internal combustion engine with an electric boost or allows the vehicle to coast with the engine completely switched off. In addition, ACT+ active cylinder deactivation enables the 1.5 TSI to switch off two cylinders when their power is not needed. This is imperceptible to the passengers and reduces fuel consumption. The 193 PS top-of-the-range diesel and the 265 PS petrol range-topper are equipped with all-wheel drive as standard. This distributes power between the front and rear axles as well as between the individual wheels. Up to 100 per cent of the drive torque can be directed to the rear axle and as much as 85 per cent to a single wheel. Moreover, all engines come with a 66-litre fuel tank, ensuring a long range.

DCC Plus enables superior comfort and exceptional driving dynamics
The DCC Plus adaptive chassis control system offers an outstanding blend of increased comfort and improved dynamic driving behaviour. The new system utilises two independently controlled valves per shock absorber instead of a single one. This allows the rebound and compression stages to be controlled separately. In addition, the dampers respond more quickly and extend the range of available damping characteristics. DCC Plus is available as an option for the SE L and comes as standard on the Superb L&K.

Safety: New nano sensors for more advanced and accurate assistance systems

  • Enhanced safety: new nano radar sensors on the front apron, plus rear radar sensors with increased range – a Škoda first
  • New in the Superb Estate: Turn Assist, Crossroad Assist, Collision Avoidance Assist and Exit Warning
  • Improved crew protection: up to ten airbags and a new Attention and Drowsiness Assist

Škoda Auto has further enhanced the safety of its flagship ICE model with a new generation of sensors and state-of-the-art assistance systems. Turn Assist, Crossroad Assist and Collision Avoidance Assist are making their debut as part of the enhanced Front Assist, while the Travel Assist, Side Assist and Trailer Assist have all seen their scope significantly expanded. If needed, Crew Protect Assist and up to ten airbags protect the occupants.

New sensors and improved assistance systems ensure greater safety
For the first time ever, Škoda is using new nano radar sensors in its all-new Superb Estate. Positioned in the right and left corners of the front apron, they again enhance the performance of the state-of-the-art assistance systems, such as the enhanced Front Assist or the Crossroad Assist. This assistance system alerts drivers to crossing traffic, cyclists and pedestrians when driving forward to negotiate a blind exit from a driveway or side street and even brakes automatically if required. The improved multifunction camera in the windscreen now has a larger field of vision. Its images are also used by the latest version of the Turn Assist. It reacts with a warning and, if necessary, automatically activates the brakes if there is a vehicle approaching when turning in the face of oncoming traffic at a junction. The Front Assist, which now also includes Predictive Cyclist Protection, accesses images from the new camera. The nano radar sensors in the rear apron increase the range of the Side Assist, which now detects vehicles approaching from up to 90 metres behind instead of the previous 70 metres and warns of dangerous lane changes. The Exit Warning alerts drivers to traffic approaching from behind before a door is opened. It covers a range of 35 metres and an angle of 120 degrees. The new Swerve Support is active at speeds between 18 and 86 mph to help prevent car-to-car collisions and at 18 to 52 mph to avoid accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists. It automatically increases the steering angle when it detects that the driver’s steering response has come too late or is insufficient to avoid a collision.

Park Assist makes parking safer and easier
With the new Park Assist, the Superb Estate can park automatically in perpendicular and parallel parking spaces. The function now controls not just the steering but the speed as well. The vehicle also stops on its own if the system recognises an obstacle. Further functions will be added to the Park Assist at a later date. Remote Trained Parking will enable drivers to initiate a previously performed and saved parking manoeuvre from outside the vehicle via the MyŠkoda app on their smartphone. With Remote Parking, they can use the MyŠkoda app on their mobile phone within a four-metre range from the vehicle. This feature enables them to automatically steer the Superb Estate into a row of vehicles parked parallel or perpendicular to the road and again to exit such a parking space.

Improved Travel Assist, new Attention and Drowsiness Assist, up to ten airbags
The Travel Assist offers improved visual displays of other vehicles detected nearby in the Virtual Cockpit. The Adaptive Lane Assist now also works on unmarked roads, while Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), in conjunction with a navigation system, also anticipates bends, junctions and roundabouts. The new Attention and Drowsiness Assist replaces the previous Driver Alert system. It monitors driver behaviour, assesses the driver’s potential level of fatigue and triggers visual and acoustic warnings in the Virtual Cockpit if necessary. In addition to data from the power steering, the new system now also accesses information from various vehicle control units, including Lane Assist, and detects deviations from normal steering behaviour at speeds over 6 mph. In the event of an accident, up to ten airbags protect the occupants. Driver and front passenger airbags, a knee airbag for the driver, side airbags on the front seats, head airbags and, for the first time in this model series, a central airbag between the front seats are fitted as standard. Rear side airbags are available as an option.

Connectivity: Improved, AI-based voice recognition and new services

  • Enhanced user experience: AI-based ChatGPT software will extend the functionality of the Laura voice assistant

The all-new Superb will later this year integrate the AI-based ChatGPT software into its infotainment system, significantly expanding the functionality of the digital voice assistant Laura.

Extended range of functions for Laura voice assistant
The ChatGPT software is based on artificial intelligence (AI), enabling the digital voice assistant Laura to answer general knowledge questions, in addition to controlling the vehicle’s infotainment, navigation and air conditioning systems. Thanks to AI, the range of answers to even more complex questions will continue to grow. In future, customers will be able to add interesting facts to conversations during a journey, clarify questions that come up, and access specific facts about the vehicle. In this context, ChatGPT does not gain access to any vehicle information or personal data. All interactions are subsequently deleted to ensure maximum data protection. The Superb’s infotainment system will again feature Online Map Update and Online Traffic Information.

Simply Clever: Up to 28 intelligent features

  • Debut: an electrically operated load cover, a first for Škoda
  • New elements: display cleaner in the Jumbo Box tray and sliding rear centre armrest
