We should first see the wagon variant of the Skoda Superb at September’s Frankfurt Motor ShowEnlarge Photo
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.
The latest spy shots reveal a nearly undisguised prototype for the upcoming car. The included 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 3.6L 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 debut2010 Skoda Superb wagon preview
