New Superb open for orders

The new Skoda Superb is now open for orders in Ireland and demo versions are expected in dealerships during May, writes Brian Byrne.

It's the fourth generation of Skoda's large car and will again be available in hatchback and wagon Combi formats. They are both longer an taller than the predecessor car.

Powertrain options are a mild-hybrid 1.5 turbo petrol and a 2.0 diesel which can also run on HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil).

Prices start from €48,325 for the petrol, and diesel is available from €48,825. There are three specification grades.

The modern Superb was originally launched in 2001, reviving a nameplate previously used by Skoda between 1934-1949.
