2011 Skoda Superb Combi Laurin & Klement unveiled

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 3, 2011

During the official press conference of this year’s Autosalon Brno, Skoda unveiled the Superb Combi that was fitted with the exclusive design package Laurin & Klement. Those who were at the event had said how impressed they were with its equipment level and design modifications. Both the station wagon and the five-door sedan model may be fitted with this design package.

At the rear of the vehicle, we can see a chromium-plated front grille as well as the Laurin & Klement plaque.

The package also features a set of 18-inch light alloy wheels “Sirius.” The Superb gets large door sills that are made of stainless steel. The Laurin & Klement logo is visible on the sills and on the rear of the front seats. Buyers are only able to get the “Executive” interior equipment together with the design package.

The interior is color-coordinated to the body, using the new metallic color “Magnetic Brown.” Consumers may choose special decorative trims either in the “Piano” design or in wood decor.

The engine lineup consists of two turbocharged petrol-powered four-cylinder engine 2.0 TSI with the six-gear automatic transmission DSG and the six-cylinder 3.6 FSI V6, which also has the six-gear automatic transmission DSG and all-wheel drive. If you prefer diesel, you may go for the 2.0 TDI, which is offered together with the six-gear manual transmission or the DSG.

In terms of dimensions, the new Skoda Superb Combi measures 4,838 mm in length, 1,817 mm in width, and 1,481 mm in height, which rises to 1,510 mm when this measurement includes the anodized roof rails (available in black). With these dimensions, the Superb Combi offers the largest loading capacity in the segment, ranging from the basic 633 liters and the expanded 1,865 liters (rear seats folded down). Moreover, the tailgate is now wide enough to even accommodate bulky items while its low loading sill – around 600 mm above the ground – allows for easy baggage handling.

Just like the previous model, the new Skoda Superb Combi features a host of interior equipment and elements, with the addition of a few more. These additions include the available KESSY keyless locking and ignition system. This system employs a transmitter embedded in the key to communicate with the car’s control unit, allowing the doors to be opened once the handles are touched. Also, the doors could be closed – without using a key or remote control central locking – just by pressing a button located on the external handle.

Drivers could start or turn off the engine by pressing a button on the right-hand side of the steering wheel column. However, to start a Skoda Superb Combi with manual transmission, the clutch pedal needs to be pressed first (brake pedal for automatic models). Meanwhile, the new Skoda Superb Combi could be fitted with the optional electrically operated tailgate that comes with a separately available automatic retractable luggage compartment cover. The cover will roll back to the middle position when the tailgate is opened to allow more space for handling the luggage.

Moreover, the luggage compartment features a sliding false floor that, when the tailgate is open, can be extended over the rear bumper to allow users to easily move larger items. The car’s luggage restraint system – which prevents baggage from sliding around when the Skoda Superb Combi is on the move – features aluminum strips and a netting package.

Customers may also avail of the Skoda Genuine Accessories range that includes a bicycle holder that could be mounted to the lower surface of the luggage compartment once the upper section of the false floor has been detached. For this iteration of the Skoda Superb Combi, the luggage compartment lighting has been integrated into the tailgate, illuminating the whole area around the vehicle’s rear section.

A battery-powered removable lamp is placed on the left side of the luggage compartment. When removed, this lamp can be used as an LED flashlight in the dark, while the holder could be used as a charger.

This lamp could easily be mounted on the vehicle’s body, thanks to a built-in magnet. The new Skoda Superb Combi also comes with an electrically operated, two-piece panoramic sunroof that provides the needed interior illumination. However, if the occupants want to cover themselves from the sun, the Skoda Superb Combi comes with a protective blind that can be drawn across the glass roof, thereby blocking 90 percent of the heat. Also, the roof features a mounted shark fin aerial.

Different customers may avail of various radios and navigation systems that they may be deemed suitable for their needs. The Skoda Superb Combi’s data network is able to integrate two different 2 DIN car radios with CD/MP3 players while offering an array of user-friendly support functions. The touchscreen Amundsen system provides electronic navigation that allows drivers to intuitively operate all functions.

Discerning customers may want to avail of the high-end touchscreen Columbus navigation system that comes with an integrated hard disk. The Skoda Superb Combi is also endowed with a high-quality audio system with dynamic speakers, an Aux-In socket, a CD changer and an MDI (Mobile Device Interface) in the Jumbo Box located between the front seats for connecting external storage media.

Superb Combi with package Laurin & Klement

ŠKODA exhibits the Superb Combi with the design package Laurin & Klement, design study VisionD and the special edition Fabia Monte Carlo at the Autoslaon Brno.

At this year's Autosalon Brno, the Czech automobile manufacturer ŠKODA for the first time exhibits the model Superb Combi with the exclusive design package Laurin & Klement. Today, the vehicle was presented within the framework of a press conference at the fair, impressing with high-quality equipment and fine design elements. Another highlight of the company's presence at the fair is the design study VisionD, with which ŠKODA hints at the architecture of future models. The special edition model Fabia Monte Carlo emphasizes the sporty character of the brand, paying homage to successes in motor sports and the 110-year old motor sports tradition of the manufacturer.

The design package Laurin & Klement gives the Superb a particularly individual touch. The design package is available for the five-door sedan and the station wagon. With a chromium-plated front grille and the Laurin & Klement plaque at the rear of the vehicle, the model conveys its individual equipment upon first sight. Exclusive use is made of the 18-inch light alloy wheels "Sirius".

When stepping into the vehicle, the Superb Laurin & Klement greets its passengers with door sills made of stainless steel. The sills are adorned with the Laurin & Klement logo, which can also be found on the rear of the front seats.

The interior equipment "Executive", which is offered exclusively in combination with the design package, is matched with other elements and color-coordinated with the new metallic color "Magnetic Brown". Available as options are the decorative trims in the design "Piano" or in a wood decor.
The engine options of the Superb Laurin & Klement fulfill the highest demands regarding dynamic driving and power. The gas engines offered are the turbo-charged four-cylinder engine 2.0 TSI/147 kW with the six-gear automatic transmission DSG and the six-cylinder 3.6 FSI V6/191 kW, also with the six-gear automatic transmission DSG and all-wheel drive. Friends of the self-igniting diesel engine will enjoy the four-cylinder 2.0 TDI CR DPF/125 kW, which is available in combination with the six-gear manual transmission or the DSG.

Celebrating its Czech premiere in Brno, the design concept VisionD allows for a first look at the design of future vehicles developed by ŠKODA. The concept impresses with clear and precise styling, created with the utmost care and love for detail. The new logo, which can be seen on the study and which will adorn the new models of the brand beginning in 2012, was structured more clearly and given a high-value look. The front end with its sharper logo, redesigned front grille, as well as the four headlights arranged in clover-leaf fashion express the independent design of the vehicle even more effectively. The rear end of the concept car receives its distinctive character primarily through the new logo as well as the even more clearly developed C-form of the rear lights.
