Skoda Superb Middlesbrough
Recent changes to Skoda’s eco-friendly diesel version of the Superb hatchback and estate models are now offering huge benefits to motorists in the north east looking for better economy without compromising power.
WhatCar? magazine described the Skoda Superb as ‘an executive car at a family price’,
and we at Derek Slack Motors couldn’t agree more! The huge cavernous hatchback and estate models both receive smaller diesel engines that achieve more than the engine they replace. Stunning economy figures improve from 49.6mpg to an incredible 57mpg whilst emissions fall from 150g/km to just 130g/km.
Despite the the size of the engine decreasing from 1.9 litres to 1.6 litres, power and output remain the same at 105bhp and both the acceleration and top speed are unchanged at 12.5 seconds and 118mph.
Extra savings also come to private users following improvements in economy, with an additional 70 miles from every ten-gallon fill up. For company car drivers, the tax liability reduces because of the sheer desirability of this model on the second hand market, with residual values likely to be sky-high, meaning lower finance to fund the purchase or the lease. That’s great news for company car users in Teesside, North Yorkshire and County Durham.
If only every company car could achieve the same level of C02 reductions and improved economy it would be the equivalent of taking millions of vehicles off the road.
Skoda Superb drivers will already be familiar with the executive-style build quality that is a match for any of its German rivals, the VW based Superb is one of the most spacious family sized models on the market. It also features a unique boot lid called Twindoor, allowing the vehicle to become either a saloon or hatchback, depending on witch catch is pressed, with 430 litres of luggage space beneath.
The estate version is one of the largest in it’s class, offering up to 1,865 litres with the seats down, which is significantly more than a Volvo V70 estate. Standard kit throughout includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, traction control, electronic stability control, four electric windows and a five star NCAP safety rating.
