Skoda Superb Outdoor launched
Rugged version of Skoda Superb gets new features and efficient diesel engines
The new Skoda Superb Outdoor has been revealed, adding a wide range of practical features to the standard SE model.
Some of the equipment taken from the SE model includes rear parking sensors, air-conditioning, a leather gear stick and electric door mirrors. Four-wheel drive adds to the car's rugged appeal and gives the Skoda Superb Outdoor improved grip in slippery conditions.
The Superb Outdoor is £2,000 more expensive than the SE specification cars and that’s reflected in the car’s extra features. Tinted rear windows protect those inside the car from harmful UV rays, whilst bootlid cover minimises chips and bumps developing on the boot’s edge. In addition to this, the Outdoor gets 18-inch alloy wheels, a tyre pressure monitor and exclusive black bumpers.
There’s a choice of two efficient diesel engines available and both offer different fuel economy figures. The 138bhp 2.0-litre TDI does 53mpg and emits 139g/km of CO2, while the less economical 168bhp 2.0-litre emits 149g/km of CO2 and does just 49mpg.
The Skoda Superb is a safe car, too. It was awarded five full stars in the 2009 Euro NCAP crash tests and scored 90 per cent for adult occupant protection. Not only this, the Skoda Superb estate was named Best Estate Car in the 2012 Carbuyer Awards, while just a year later, the Skoda Citigo and Skoda Octavia were named Best City Car and Best Family Car respectively.
Skoda Superb Outdoor models fitted with the smaller 2.0-litre diesel engine start from £26,995, while the cars fitted with the larger engine cost from £29,235. For an additional £1,000 you can opt for the more luxurious Skoda Superb Outdoor Plus, which adds full leather upholstery, satellite-navigation and a DAB radio.
Generous monthly finance deals are also available on all Skoda Superb Outdoor models. You can contact your nearest Skoda dealership for more information, or take a look at the Carbuyer Skoda reviews page for detailed reviews on the entire Skoda range.
