Skoda Superb Estate (2010–2015)

Model History

February 2010

Skoda Superb Estate went on sale in the UK

Has class-leading load volume of up to 1865 litres (633 litres with the rear seats up) and a choice of three petrol and three diesel engines, plus manual and DSG transmissions. The Superb Estate is 4,838 mm long, 1,817 wide and 1,510 high.

New optional features, include keyless entry and ignition system and a revised version of the hatchback’s award-winning Park Assist system that allows the estate to parallel park in an even tighter space than before. An electronically operated boot opening and panoramic sunroof are also available.

Summary of engine range for Superb:

Petrol:

1.4 TSI 125bhp
1.8 TSI 160bhp (manual or 7 spd DSG, 4x4 available)
3.6 V6 260bhp DSG 4x4

Diesel:

1.9 TDI 105bhp (replaced by a 1.6 TDI 105bhp in August 2010)
2.0 TDI CR 140bhp with DPF (manual or DSG). Available from March 2010
2.0 TDI CR 170bhp with DPF (manual or DSG, 4x4 available)

The Superb Estate includes features that are unique over its sister hatch version. These include roof rails (black on the S; chrome on SE and Elegance); a removable LED torch; and load-bay illuminating lights built into the tailgate. SE and Elegance also feature a load partition and tethering system in the boot as standard

A 4WD version is also available with 1.8 TSI 160bhp and 3.6 V6 260bhp petrol engines as well as the 2.0 TDI CR 170bhp diesel. 4th generation Haldex clutched system transfers torque to whichever wheels have the most traction by taking signals from the ABS sensors, greatly increasing driving safety in snowy and icy conditions.

February 2010

The 2.0 TDI CR 140PS was added to the line up and this new model is even more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly than the 2.0 TDI PD 140PS it replaces. Combined fuel consumption has improved and is now 51.4mpg, while CO2 emissions have been reduced to 145g/km. The standard diesel particulate filter (DPF) also ensures compliance with the latest EU5 emissions regulations. The new 2.0 TDI CR 140PS DPF engine is available with a choice of six-speed manual or twin-clutch DSG transmissions in S, SE or Elegance trim.

In the Practical Caravan Towcar Awards 2010 the Skoda Superb Estate 2.0 TDI CR 170 SE was named best car in the 1,575-1,724kg class.

May 2010

New SE Plus trim introduced and new 1.8 TSI 152PS engine added to the range.

New trim level sits between SE and Elegance models and adds extra equipment but with savings of up to £1310

August 2010

A new 1.6 TDI CR 105PS engine was introduced, which offers improved fuel consumption and CO2 over the 1.9 TDI PD unit which it replaces. Combined mpg has been improved by an impressive 5.6mpg while emissions have been reduced by 20g/km. Available in S and SE trim levels, the 1.6 TDI CR comes with a five speed manual gearbox.

September 2010

GreenLine versions are also offered on the range-topping Skoda Superb and Superb Estate. Both versions have combined fuel consumption of 64.2 mpg, with CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

November 2010

Automatic DSG transmission now offered with 2.0 TDI CR 140PS four-wheel drive on Octavia and Superb model lines. The four-wheel drive system is designed to tackle conditions that would leave two-wheel drive competitors stranded. Power distribution is controlled electronically by a fourth-generation Haldex clutch. Under normal traction conditions, 96% of the total power is directed to the front axle. In adverse weather conditions – similar to those experienced in the UK last winter – the Haldex system reacts in a split second to redirect power to those wheels with better traction, greatly increasing driving safety.

The 4×4′s capabilities aren’t limited to wintery conditions. In summer months the 4×4 technology will ensure that towing caravans and trailers is easier and safer, and because drive to the rear wheels is disengaged when not required, there’s little adverse effect on fuel consumption.

The introduction of an automatic twin-clutch DSG gearbox to the existing 2.0 TDI CR 140bhp engine adds to Škoda’s broad range of four-wheel drive cars which now includes Octavia Estate, Octavia Scout, Yeti, Superb hatch, and Superb Estate. Available to order in the UK from November 2010, with prices starting at £21,705.

October 2012

Skoda announced the Superb Outdoor

It comes with extra bodywork protection and an all-wheel drive system for tough weather conditions. It’s offered in estate body style and is available with a choice either petrol or diesel power. It’s priced from £28,465.

Changes over the standard Superb Estate SE, on which the Outdoor is based, include the addition of multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth, hill-hold control, heater washer nozzles and headlight washers. Protective plastic strips are added at the base of the doors, on the bumpers and around the wheel arches.

18 inch alloy wheels are standard, as is permanent all-wheel drive. The cleanest model produces 165g/km of CO2 and has fuel economy of 44.8mpg. Power comes from either a 1.8-litre petrol with 160PS or a 2.0 TDI diesel with either 170PS (manual) or 140PS (DSG automatic). Prices start at £26,465 and rise to £28,100 for the 2.0 TDI DSG.

February 2014

Revised Superb Outdoor launched

The Superb Outdoor is returning to the range for the first time since the model’s facelift during 2013. With off-road adventure styling as standard, the car features additional specification above the SE trim on which it’s based, and is available with four-wheel-drive transmission for grip and extra peace of mind.

Standard equipment includes new front and rear bumpers, wheel arch and side sill extensions, loading sill protection and side body mouldings. All are finished in matt grey.

Additional kit includes 18-inch ‘Trinity’ anthracite alloys, Hill Hold Control, tyre pressure monitor, integrated front headlight washers, heated washer nozzles and sunset glass.

The Superb Outdoor and Outdoor Plus will be available with one of two existing transmissions – the 2.0-litre TDI CR 140PS 4x4 DPF or 2.0-litre TDI CR 170PS 4x4 DSG DPF. The on-the-road price for each Outdoor model is £26,995 and £29,235 respectively. That’s a £2,000 premium over SE trim, but with such a high specification it represents exceptional value-for-money.

For customers who want the ultimate in luxury and comfort for their adventures, the Superb Outdoor Plus adds full leather upholstery and an ‘Amundsen’ satellite navigation system with integrated DAB digital radio. It costs a further £1,000.

June 2014

Skoda Superb TdF launched

Designed with the keen cyclist in mind, it comes with ‘le Tour de France’ badging, waterproof seat covers and bike wheel bags – all of which feature the Tour de France logo. In addition, customers will receive a centenary edition of the Rouleur Tour de France book and a competition entry to win a VIP Tour de France experience.

Only 198 examples are available to customers - that’s the exact number of cyclists entered into this year's race. The Superb TdF is priced at £28,490 and is based on the Estate Outdoor 2.0-litre TDI 140PS 4x4 and has an Amundsen satellite navigation system with DAB digital radio, Keyless Entry and Start System, floor mats and an internal bike rack, along with a space saver spare wheel and boot net programme.
