Škoda Superb Estate 4×4: Luxury and Safety Whatever the Weather
Fourth-generation Haldex clutch
Available with 1.8 TSI, 2.0 TDI CR 170 & 3.6 V6
Prices from £22,420
With its fourth-generation Haldex clutch four-wheel drive, the new Škoda Superb Estate 4×4 offers award winning comfort and safety, whatever the weather.
Available with 1.8 TSI 160bhp and 3.6 V6 260bhp petrol engines as well as the 2.0 TDI CR 170bhp diesel, the Superb Estate 4×4 can tackle the sort of slippery conditions that would leave its two-wheel drive competitors stranded. The system transfers torque to whichever wheels have the most traction by taking signals from the ABS sensors, greatly increasing driving safety in the type of snowy and icy conditions that have gripped the UK this winter.
But the Superb Estate 4×4’s capabilities aren’t limited to wintery conditions. In the summer months the 4×4 technology will ensure that pulling trailers and caravans is easier, safer and more enjoyable than ever. And because drive to the rear wheels is disengaged when not needed, there’s little adverse effect on fuel consumption.
The Superb Estate is already the holder of Top Gear Magazine’s ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ Award, despite not going on sale until 26th February 2010, and the availability of four-wheel drive only adds to its broad appeal. Prices start at £22,420 for the Superb Estate 1.8 TSI 160bhp 4×4 SE.
With the Octavia Estate 4×4, Octavia Scout, Yeti 4×4 and the Superb Hatch and Estate 4×4, Škoda offers a broad range of four-wheel drive models for all needs and conditions.
