With its innovative Twindoor system, Skoda's flagship Superb already blurs the fine line between sedan, hatchback and wagon. But those crazy Europeans love their wagons, or "estates" as they call 'em over there, and VW's Czech subsidiary wants its slice of the action. So, after releasing the Superb sedan/hatch/whatsit in Geneva last year, Skoda is preparing to unveil a proper extended-roof wagon at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
Like the Twindoor, the Superb Kombi is expected to offer a range of six engines – three gas and three diesels – mated to either a six-speed manual or DSG dual-clutch tranny, but may also get the addition of available all-wheel-drive as well. All Skoda has released at the moment is the teaser image you see above along with a short statement, so if you're as nuts as we are about Eastern European station wagons, you'll want to Czech 'em out after the jump.
Estate Version of Škoda Superb to Debut at Frankfurt Motorshow
Škoda Auto will present the estate version of its flagship model Superb at the forthcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. The car is a logical continuation of the Superb model series and offers an ideal combination of practicality and elegance. The estate version follows on from the hatchback, the current generation of which has found more than forty-two thousand owners, in just over a year since it was launched.
The newest addition to the Superb range extends the tradition of estate versions that are typical of what customers have become used to in Škoda cars -timeless design and spacious interior that make the Superb estate an ideal car for every driver who requires a comfortable, reliable car in all circumstances.
