Rugged Scout version added to Skoda Superb range for the first time
Skoda Superb Scout has raised ground clearance and all-wheel drive
After the launch of the new facelifted Superb with plug-in hybrid option, Skoda has added also a Scout version to the new Superb range of models.
It combines the huge amount of space offered by the Skoda Superb Combi with the qualities of an offroad vehicle, yet the length and width remain the same. The Scout version of the Superb has all-wheel drive and a Rough-Road package, which comes as standard and provides underbody protection for the engine as well as undercarriage when driving on rougher terrain, and raises the ground clearance by 15 mm. This is supported by an additional Off-Road mode for Driving Mode Select. Dynamic Chassis Control is available as an option.
The Skoda Superb Scout is available with either the model range’s most powerful diesel or petrol engine. The 2.0 TDI diesel engine delivers 140 kW (190 PS) and transfers its maximum torque of 400 Nm to all four wheels via a 7-speed DSG. The 2.0 TDI is fitted with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection and a diesel particulate filter, meaning it fulfils the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.
The 2.0 TSI petrol engine boasts a power output of 200 kW (272 PS) and has a maximum torque of 350 Nm. In addition to all-wheel drive, it also comes with a 7-speed DSG. Equipped with a petrol particulate filter, the 2.0 TSI fulfils the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard too. Both engines feature Stop/Start technology and brake energy recovery.
The Superb Scout showcases redesigned, rugged front and rear bumpers, each with aluminium-effect underbody protection. Furthermore, additional plastic trims protect the wheel arches, side sills and the lower part of the doors. The roof rails and window frames are chrome-plated. The wing mirror housings shine in an aluminium look and there are special Scout badges on the wings.
The new Superb Scout comes with 18-inch Braga alloy wheels as standard, which are also optionally available in a two-tone version. The new two-tone, 19-inch Manaslu alloys and exclusive metallic Tangerine Orange body finish are further customisation options. The Superb Scout can be used for towing and can pull a weight of 2,200 kg. Its optional retractable tow bar is mechanically unlocked.
