The Skoda Superb isn’t exactly the king of sedans, at least not for us Americans who have never driven in one and most likely will never even see one in the flesh. Of course, the sedan is a little more popular over in Europe, and now it’s received another piece of ammo in its small bag-o-guns. Skoda UK has announced the addition of a new 1.6 TDI CR 105bhp engine to the Superb line-up. The new engine will be available for S and SE models and will be available for order starting today with prices starting at £17,480.
This engine provides better driveability and fuel economy than the previous engines with its 105hp and 56.5 mpg. Breaking it down a bit, the new engine gets 6.9mpg for the Hatch and 5.6mpg for the Estate. CO2 emissions have also been reduced by 19g/km and 20g/km respectively.
The new Superb follows along the lines of every other Skoda model in the lineup. This great little car has provided enough style, practicality, and comfort to earn Top Gear Magazine’s ’Luxury Car of the Year’ and Auto Express’ best ‘Family Car’ and ‘Estate Car’ of the year.
Press release after the jump.
Škoda has announced the introduction of a 1.6 TDI CR 105bhp engine to its multi-award winning Superb range.
The engine offers improved driveability, fuel consumption and CO2 over the 1.9 TDI PD unit which it replaces. Combined mpg has been improved by an impressive 6.9mpg for the Hatch, and 5.6mpg for the Estate while emissions have been reduced by a remarkable 19g/km and 20g/km respectively.
With prices starting at just £17,480 the Superb offers the same great value for money as every Škoda. However, it’s not just the great value that sets it apart from its rivals. Its style, practicality and luxurious comfort have won it critical acclaim, including Top Gear Magazine’s ’Luxury Car of the Year’ and Auto Express’ best ‘Family Car’ and ‘Estate Car’ of the year.
Available in S and SE trim levels, the 1.6 TDI CR comes with a five speed manual gearbox and is available to order at Škoda retailers from today (19 August).
