New Skoda Superb ready for action

The new four-wheel drive Superb Outdoor is the latest addition to the Skoda range.

Prices for the Superb Outdoor will start at £26,465 for the petrol version through to £28,100 for the DSG-equipped diesel. The new model comes hot on the heels of Skoda's Octavia Scout, which was styled in an off-road manner.

Drivers of the Superb Outdoor will certainly be assisted by the superior traction of the permanent four-wheel-drive system in the winter months. The Superb Outdoor also boasts protective bodywork around the vehicle's edges.

Although it is based on the Superb SE, the Outdoor offers a choice of three different engine types. The petrol version has a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine which kicks out 158bhp. Diesel models come equipped with either a standard 138bhp or a six-speed manual 168bhp engine.

As well as Bluetooth connectivity, a tyre pressure monitor and Hill-Hold Control, the Superb Outdoor also features a four-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel.
