The new ŠKODA Superb Estate has the largest boot in the automotive mid-class. Although the new Superb Estate is only 23 mm longer than its predecessor, the boot holds 27 litres more than before with the rear seats up. Putting the seats down in the back the load capacity will increase to almost two cubic metres: a 1950-litre load capacity is by far the best in its class, and 85 litres larger than the second-generation model. Even carrying long objects is possible; the front passenger seat can easily be folded down when required. This allows objects of up to 3.10 metres to be transported in the new Superb Estate.
The new ŠKODA Superb not only triumphs in terms of space, but also in its practical solutions. Up to 31 Simply Clever features are on offer for the new model – eleven of which are in the boot alone.
Just like the saloon version, the new ŠKODA Superb Estate is also available with the virtual pedal, which will enable you to open the electric tailgate hands-free with gesture control: a simple foot movement around the bottom of the rear bumper is all it takes to open the boot door. The function works in combination with the keyless lock and start system KESSY.
Another new addition making its debut on the new ŠKODA Superb Estate is the practical tip-to-close function that initiates the electric boot closing mechanism with a simple pull. Combining the electric bootlid with KESSY, the boot can also be closed by remote control.
The rear seats in the new Superb Estate can now be folded down from the boot using a lever.
The variably adjustable false boot floor offers the highest practical benefits in the new ŠKODA Superb Estate. This intermediate movable floor can divide the boot in various ways making it more flexible. The system also creates practical storage space: the boot’s coat shelf and the retractable cover can be stored under the false (double) floor.
The roller cover has been designed as a manual retractable load cover. By applying gentle pressure, it automatically rolls back and the boot is free for loading. The Superb Estate’s boot, already featuring the electric door with virtual pedal, is also fitted with a roller cover with an automatic unlocking roller blind. This means the cover will automatically move one notch back when the boot door opens.
Another practical feature is the new coat shelf, which can be found under the roller cover. This can hold items, such as a jacket.
Four folding hooks in the boot can help to securely transport items that might otherwise move around, for example shopping bags. The net programme is also useful here; one horizontal and two vertical nets can secure items when required. Finally, in the boot you will also find a removable LED torch, which can be used outside the vehicle. The flashlight is charged automatically in its holder as you drive.
The new ŠKODA Superb Estate will be celebrating its trade-fair premiere in September at the 66th International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The model will be launched on the first markets in the same month.
