After revealing the new Superb in March at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Skoda decided that it’s time to show us the all-new 2016 Superb Combi. Set to make its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the new Skoda Superb Combi promises to offer a best-in-class interior space, balanced proportions and more driving dynamics.

Just like the sedan version, the Superb Combi is based on the innovative MQB technology and surprises us with a total boot volume of almost 2,000 litres. According to the official press release, the wheelbase of new Superb Combi was increased by 80 mm to 2,841 mm, while the track width increased to 1,584 mm at the front and to 1,572 mm at the rear.

Skoda says that its new vehicles offers 39 mm more elbow room than before, while the headroom in the front is 995 mm and 1,001 mm in the rear. Meanwhile, rear knee room is 157 mm, representing twice as much as the next-best competitor. Elbow room in the rear was increased by 70 mm, while the boot volume is 660 liters (an increase of 27 litres).

When it comes to design, the vehicle shares the same front end with the sedan version, while the rear end is completely new. As you can see from the photos, the 2015 Skoda Superb Combi features a sweeping roof line, as well as a steeply angled rear window.

There are no details regarding the engines found under the hood, but we expect to see the same ones found on the sedan version such as five petrol units that deliver between 125 hp (92 kW) and 280 hp (206 kW).

Moreover, the Superb Combi will get one of the three TDI engines producing between 120 hp (88 kW) and 190 hp (140 kW). Engines can be bolted to a manual gearbox or a dual-clutch transmission, with the exception of the entry-level petrol unit.

Skoda also offers an all-wheel drive system as an option, for four of the eight engines. The new EU6 engines are more powerful and up to 30 percent more efficient than its predecessor.
