Skoda Superb news - Twin some, lose some - 2008

Read more on:

Worthy
and reliable as it shall doubtless be when it goes on sale in the UK this
autumn, the new Skoda Superb isn’t the easiest car to get excited about. 

Especially
when it looks, well, not vastly different to the current Superb. 

But
wait. Because round the back of the humble Superb lurks a technological
innovation that could change the face - or at least the arse - of motoring. And
that innovation is called Twindoor. 

Patented
by Skoda, Twindoor is a nifty tailgate that allows you to open just the bootlid
to load small items, or the entire hatch - including the rear window - for
bigger stuff. Which, we guess, makes the Superb half saloon and half hatch. A
haloon, perhaps. Or a satch. 

Still
not enthused? Well, how does a 3.2-litre V6 tickle your fancy? Still nothing?
Touch-screen DVD? Flappy-paddle gearbox? No? 

Fine,
be apathetic. But don’t come crawling to us when you’ve got an awkwardly shaped
flat-pack wardrobe that won’t fit into the back of your saloon.
