Skoda Superb has been one of the best seller cars of Skoda in past one year. Inspired by the success of Skoda Superb, Skoda India has launched spacious and luxurious sedan Skoda Combi. It has an extra space at the rear compared to the regular version of Skoda Superb for extra boot space and family outing needs.
It has beautiful and smooth Skoda styling which gives it a distinct-from-the-crowd look. The interiors are luxurious. The new Superb Combi is 4,838 mm long, 1,817 mm wide, and 1,481 mm high. Including the roof rails, delivered as standard and available either anodized or black, the car’s height rises to 1,510 mm. The luggage compartment holds 633 liters, expanding to a cavernous 1,865 liters when the rear seats are folded down, this is a huge luggage capacity for any kind of sedan. The width of the tailgate is large enough to accommodate bulky items. The low loading sill, a mere 600 mm above the ground, makes handling baggage easy.
This is the first Indian Skoda vehicle with the KESSY keyless locking and ignition system. A transmitter in the body of the key communicates with the control unit in the car and unlocks the doors when the handles are touched. The car can also be locked without using a key or remote control central locking by pressing a button on the external handle. The engine can be started and turned off with a button located on the right-hand side of the steering wheel column. To start the engine, the driver first has to press the clutch pedal (in cars with manual transmission) or the brake pedal (if the transmission is automatic).
Various car radios and navigation systems are available to cater to discerning customers’ different needs and wishes. The vehicle’s data network can integrate two different 2 DIN car radios with CD/MP3 players and offers a wide range of user-friendly support functions. Electronic navigation is based on a touch screen Amundsen system enabling the driver to operate all functions intuitively. A top-of-the-range touch screen Columbus navigation system with integrated hard disk is also available. Other audio technology includes a high-quality audio system with powerful speakers, an Aux-In socket, an MDI (Mobile Device Interface) in the Jumbo Box between the front seats to connect external storage media, and a CD changer.
Another interesting feature of the new Superb Combi is the optional electrically-operated tailgate. This is delivered with an automatic retractable luggage compartment cover, which is also available separately. When the tailgate is opened, the cover automatically rolls back to the middle position so that there is more room to handle the luggage.The concept of luggage compartment lighting integrated into the tailgate is another innovation. It illuminates not only the boot, but the whole area around the car’s rear section.
The Superb Combi’s range of engines is largely the same as that for the Superb sedan. There will be a choice of petrol and diesel engines with direct fuel injection and high power on the one hand, and low consumption and emissions on the other. As in the Superb sedan, the driving dynamics are enhanced by electromechanical steering. The car’s pleasantly high-ratio steering gear and track-holding ability do not distort the feel of the road and traction conditions.
