Skoda Superb news - Superbly priced - 2008
Skoda has announced prices for its new
Superb haloon (yes, that’s the word we’re coining to describe the Superb’s
clever hatch-saloon rear door), set to go on sale in the UK this September.
Prices will start at £14,950 for the
base-spec 1.4-litre TSI petrol model, rising to £26,675 for the fully kitted
3.6-litre V6 - which, with 260bhp, is the most powerful Skoda ever. OK, that’s
a bit like being the prettiest female
shot putter in the Olympics, but…
Other engine choices include a 1.8-litre
TSI petrol engine and a new 2.0-litre common rail diesel unit producing 170bhp.
Naturally you’ll be able to spec your Superb with VW’s ubiquitous DSG gearbox,
including a new seven-speed transmission.
Oh, and don’t
forget about the magic Twindoor, the Superb’s saloon-slash-hatch boot that threatens to destroy car-categorising
nomenclature for ever.
