New Skoda Superb Estate: king-size family wagon to cost from £36k

With more space, new interior tech and a fresh face, the new Skoda Superb Estate is a roomy family SUV alternative

  • Mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid models
  • Available with a choice of diesel engines
  • Prices start from £36,165

Pricing has been announced for the all-new Skoda Superb Estate – the roomier version of its hatchback twin – with entry-level models starting from £36,165, rising to £47,400 for the range-topping Laurin & Klement model. It’s set to arrive in the UK in June, bringing new engines, more space and a smart yet subtle look.

Now in its fourth generation, the Superb Estate is the largest non-SUV model offered by the Czech automaker, aimed towards families and dog owners who need a boot big enough to swallow all but the largest cargo. It’s due to go on sale this April, with official UK pricing and spec information to be confirmed closer to the time.

What’s new for the 2024 Skoda Superb Estate?

The core selling point of any estate car is its boot, and the new Superb’s is bigger than any of its predecessors. An overall increase in length of 40mm has translated to an extra 30 litres of luggage space in the back, bringing the total to 690 litres with all the seats in place. That figure matches the all-new Volkswagen Passat Estate, which shares much of the Superb’s componentry under the skin.

Externally, the new Skoda Superb Estate hasn’t deviated from the clean and simple design language of the outgoing model. You could be mistaken for thinking that this is a minor facelift, but the design is entirely new – it’s taller, longer and more aerodynamic than the outgoing model. The LED headlights and tail-lights are new, sitting above a pair of redesigned bumpers. Alloy wheels ranging from 17 to 19 inches are available, along with six new paint colours.

The changes are more apparent when you step inside the Superb. There’s now a large 13-inch infotainment touchscreen sitting centrally on a new dashboard. Beneath, you’ll find three physical ‘Smart Dials’, used to control everything from cabin temperature to fan speed, media volume and the sat-nav zoom – a very different approach to Volkswagen’s touch-sensitive controls found in the Passat. The driver gets a digital gauge cluster as standard, while a head-up display is available as an option.

There are three trim levels to choose from – SE Technology, SE L and L&K – each offering more standard equipment than the last and different upholstery options. There’s wider use of recycled polyester, standard ambient lighting for higher trims, along with massaging seats for all models.

What engines are available for the 2024 Skoda Superb Estate?

Superb Estate buyers have six engines to choose from, including three petrols, two diesels and one plug-in hybrid model. No matter which engine you pick, you get a DSG automatic gearbox, while more powerful models come with four-wheel drive (the remaining models are front-wheel drive).

The entry-level petrol engine is a 1.5-litre with mild-hybrid assistance, good for 148bhp. Sitting above this are two 2.0-litre petrol engines, with either 201bhp or 261bhp. The plug-in hybrid model uses a 1.5-litre engine in conjunction with a battery and an electric motor, combining to produce 201bhp. Skoda claims an electric range of up to 62 miles is possible, with a 10-80% charge taking 2.5 hours using an 11kW home charger.

For diesel customers, there are two 2.0-litre engines with 148bhp and 190bhp, the latter equipped with four-wheel drive.

How much does the 2024 Skoda Superb Estate cost and when can I order one?

The starting price of £36,165 gets you behind the wheel of the Superb SE Technology, equipped with the 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine – over £2,000 less than an equivalent Volkswagen Passat. The 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine costs an extra £560.

SE L models come with more equipment and start at £39,520, while the top-spec Laurin & Klement Superb Estate costs £47,400. The latter is currently only available with the more powerful of the two diesel engines and four-wheel drive.

Pricing has also been announced for the Superb hatchback, which comes in at a slightly more affordable £34,865.

Customers can place an order now, with the first Superb Estates arriving in the UK in June.
