Skoda reveals shape of big new Superb estate
Wednesday 26 August 2009
The flood of official sneak preview photos of new models to be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show continues – this one is of the promising Skoda Superb estate.
The Superb saloon has already won a lot of praise for its space and keen pricing, so the estate seems sure to do well too.
Skoda hasn't released any other details about the car but the silhouette revealed here contains a mild surprise; the rear roofline appears to have the sloping shape of what the industry calls a "lifestyle estate" rather than the more boxy practical shape one might previously have expected of a Skoda - although the Czech manufacturer's products are now beginning to sell on style and character, as well as their traditional value for money.
