Following the unveiling of the Skoda Superb, the Scout variant of the Skoda flagship now makes its debut.

The Scout variant is sure to impress with its enormous amount of space and versatility in combination with all-wheel drive and its choice of powerful engines.

The Superb Scout's Rough-Road package raises ground clearance by 15mm and provides underbody protection
The Superb Scout, available exclusively as an estate, focuses on off-road flair and cuts a fine figure on rough terrain thanks to rugged body enhancements, all-wheel drive, and the Rough-Road package which raises the ground clearance by 15mm and provides underbody protection for the engine and undercarriage.

Boot capacity starts from 660 litres and expands to 1,950 litres with the rear bench folded, allowing the car to transport bulky outdoor equipment such as mountain bikes to remote locations.

The Superb Scout's all-wheel drive, which comes as standard, doesn't just offer advantages when travelling off the beaten track. Driving both axles provides increased traction and driving stability, even on dry tarmac. An electronically controlled fifth-generation hydraulic multi-plate clutch is responsible for transmitting drive torque to the rear wheels. With this system, up to 90% of the power can be transmitted to the rear axle, while up to 85% can be directed to a single wheel.

Aluminium-effect underbody protection as well as additional plastic panels have been fitted to protect the wheel arches, side sills and the lower sections of the doors.

The roof rails and side window trims are chrome-plated, while the wing mirrors are finished in an aluminium look. Optional two-tone 18-inch Braga alloy wheels or two-tone 19-inch Manaslu alloys underline the car's rugged appearance.

The interior of the car is characterised by special wood-effect decorative trims, while the seats are upholstered in fabric with a contrasting stitching. A combination of Alcantara and leather is also available as an option.

The Skoda Superb Scout is available exclusively with either the model range's most powerful diesel or petrol engine. The 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine delivers 187bhp and a maximum torque of 400Nm. The turbocharged 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine, meanwhile, boasts a power output of 268bhp and has a maximum torque of 350Nm. Both variants come with a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. An additional Off-Road mode in the Driving Mode Select menu supports driving on rougher terrain. Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control is available as an option.
