It is noteworthy that the Czech producer did not wait for March, when starts the Geneva Motor Show, and held a private screening of the new car at home, in Prague. The event took place on 17 February.
One can safely say that the car has become better in every way. Ethnicity was more elegant, rigorous and concise, increased external dimensions, the interior space has increased, there were some very interesting options, technical specifications have reached a new level for the 2018-2019 Skoda Motors.
Do not forget that 2018-2019 Skoda is a part of the automaker Volkswagen. And it gives certain advantages. For example, the new generation Superb 3 created on the basis of modular MQB platform. Due to this, despite the increase in the external machine, it lost weight about 75 kilograms. At the same time the body turned out to be more reliable and more durable than its predecessor.
Recent statistics tell us that the Superb – is an extremely popular car. The previous two generations were sold worldwide total of more than 750 thousand copies.
2018-2019 Skoda also in their photo and video materials especially reminds us of the fact that the Superb has existed under this name on the market in the period 1934-1949 years. Then the machine was different elegant design, powerful propulsion units. In the video presentation of the company makes reference to the data, comparing Superb sample of the last century with the most recent development of the Czech manufacturer.
For the development of the exterior and interior meet the whole team, which was headed by the chief designer of the company 2018-2019 Skoda. Through the efforts of Joseph Cabana was established concept, which is based on the basis of the new generation Superb appearance – Vision C. Yes, that futuristic and extravagant as the prototype, the new liftbek not received. However, the car looks great.
Many compare Superb with the latest generation Volkswagen Passat – . Yes, much in common between them, even in terms of appearance. Both cars are very nice, and give some of them prefer very difficult.
The front part was the traditional trim grille, made in the style of the firm 2018-2019 Skoda. Heavy edge in the middle of a long hood ends nameplates Czech manufacturer, like a small “tip”. It looks elegant, conservative. Powerful bumper, aerodynamic elements, mad stylish optics, the original fog lights. This machine wants to enjoy forever.
Silhouette side shows solid car dimensions. Interesting vyshtampovki ideal wheel arches, stunning rims, the right shape, size and design of the door, almost perfectly smooth roofline. Shine, and only.
Behind the car is fascinating for its excellent size, extravagant optics, powerful lean bumper, rear window line, like a sports car. The presence of LED optics is no surprise, but the glow of the machine simply delightful.
As we have said, the car has changed in terms of size. Practically in all directions there are allowances, resulting in actual dimensions to the third generation is now as follows:
- length – 4861 mm;
- width – 1864 mm;
- height – 1468 mm;
- wheelbase – 2841 mm;
- ground clearance – 140 mm.
But with the clearance of the Czechs clearly overdone. Too low to get a machine. For our customers, this could be a definite stumbling block.
Talking about the interior here is quite difficult, because it takes a long epithets. Too good it turned out, even on the background of the predecessor.
In principle, the build quality, the level of organization of the internal space of the interior of the new 2018-2019 Skoda Superb can be equated to a seemingly older brother Superb – Foltsvagenu latest generation Passat.
Both machines characterized by rigor, conciseness, an increased level of solidity of internal space, unbelievable level of ergonomics, pedantic assembly. The interior of the new Superba can only admire.
One of the key advantages of this car is the availability of free space inside. It’s hard to say exactly how engineers and designers manage to achieve this. For other models presented in this class, similar capabilities can not boast.

The 2018-2019 Skoda rear sofa easily accommodate three adults whose height passes for 190 cm, and weight – 100 kilograms. What can we say about the front seats, which seats more than enough.
But that’s not all. With such a huge salon, 2018-2019 Skoda has managed to put together an even more voluminous luggage compartment. Predecessor, he was 595 liters in the standard position, the rear backrest of the sofa. This is one of the leaders in the segment of his time. Now all competitors to compete with the 2018-2019 Skoda impossible, for third-generation Škoda Superb trunk has a capacity of 625 liters.
By the way, the trunk lid opened manually is not necessary, since there is provided the drive and contactless opening technology. You just have to wave your foot under the bumper. However, these options are available for a fee. But already in the database you will put in the trunk of a portable LED flashlight, various nets, hooks to facilitate the securing of the load, and even umbrellas, which will be located in the secret compartments of the front side door. And in the rear you will find a holder designed for passengers tablets.
