Volkswagen-owned Skoda doesn't get much press in the U.S. but over in Central and Eastern Europe it is one of the most popular automotive brands. Having launched new versions of its mainstream Octavia and Superb sedans in the past year, the company last week took the covers if its all-new Yeti compact SUV and is still planning the reveal of even more models.

One of these is a wagon variant of the Superb flagship. For those readers unfamiliar with the Superb, the car is an executive saloon that shares its running gear with the Volkswagen Passat. The regular model features a hatchback style rear entry but is still classified as a sedan, however, later this year the long-wheelbase wagon variant will arrive.

This computer generated rendering gives us a good indication as to how it may be styled, revealing that Skoda designers will likely go with a significantly longer rear overhang than the sedan, as well as unique tail-lamps. The interior will be lifted straight from the sedan, with chrome detailing for the air-conditioning surrounds and instrument panels carrying over.

Mechanicals, too, will be shared with the sedan so expected to see a range of engine options starting with a 1.6L FSI and topping out with a 2.8L V6 FSI. There will also be several diesel options with both 1.9L and 2.0L TDIs on offer.Skoda unveils Superb flagship ahead of Geneva debut
