Skoda has launched a variant of the Superb dubbed the brand’s most powerful production car yet.
On sale in both hatchback and estate variants, the Superb 2.0 TSI 280PS is being pitched as more potent than many a classic supercar, with added practicality, such as a 650-litre boot.
The turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which puts out 276bhp, is matched to an all-wheel-drive chassis, giving the car a 0-62mph time of only 5.8 seconds.
The new version of the Superb will be offered in Skoda’s familiar trim levels of SE L Executive, the new SportLine and Laurin & Klement. Standard equipment on all versions includes 18-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation, an electrically operated boot, leather upholstery and heated seats.
Prices start from £31,445 for the hatch and £32,745 for the estate.
