Skoda Superb Launched

Recommended Posts

Well am impressed by the pricing and features..What anyone else wants, German car with top-notch quality with petrol and diesel option and with hell lots of Features and techs with good price..

But in march ACi, it was written that it might not come with diesel initially with launch, but we are getting diesel with launch itself..

Well the site is updated but still the pics are of LHD model and not RHD and no prices on its site..

But still the car looks good and probably would go for a TD if time permits..bluesapphire2009-03-10 11:17:33

Just got back from driving the car.

Frankly I was disappointed with it.

It seems like a good executive saloon if your going to drive it yourself... if your tall and sit at the back the headroom sucks.

To get any kind of response out of the 1.8 engine you have to press the loud pedal all the way to the floor which won't be light on your pocket.

Overall I'd give it a 4/10.

Will the new laura get the same engine?

Pricing has been done so that it doesnt compete with Volkswagen Passat. Expect new Laura to be priced even lower than the outgoing one.

Accord with its price increase faces Skoda attack on both sides. From a car that is priced lower and from a car thats priced higher than it

The new Skoda superb is fitted with all latest technology. But the diesel variant has not yet been introduced in the market. The diesel version of the new Superb will soon be introduced in India with the TDI PD diesel engine.

Skoda which yesterday launched superb in a single variant - Superb 1.8L TSI model, said that it would launch diesel variant and superb V6 before the end of 2009 or early 2010. Skoda?fs name has been associated with diesel right from inception of Octavia. However Skoda shocked everyone by launching superb only in petrol variant. For the diesel lovers, Skoda will launch the superb diesel in next three to five months. The diesel superb will come with a 1968cc pumpe deuse motor pumping out 140bhp at 4000rpm and 320Nm of peak torque at 1750rpm. The diesel superb will be fitted with a six speed DSG with tiptronic gear changing. Skoda also said that it would launch the superb with the powerful 3.6L V6 FSI (Fuel Stratified Injection)  engine producing 259bhp. Remember, Honda is all set to launch to Accord V6. ?gIn the next three to five months we plan to launch a two-litre diesel variant of the Superb,?h said Thomas Kuehl, SkodaAuto India board member, Sales and Marketing. The 3.6-litre petrol variant of the Superb may come in at the end of this year or early next year, he added.



The Czech carmaker has got something new, this time it is the much awaited Superb which is the 2nd generation model based on Volkswagen Passat.

The new Skoda Superb is available only in petrol format. The 1.8L turbocharged TSI petrol unit produces 160bhp of power and 250NM of torque and comes with the 7-speed DSG transmission to complete a package, that?fs as good as any Mercedes or BMW.
