Skoda Superb in India

There are many cars on the roads and as an automobile afficionado, I try to remember the name of a car whenever it by. Sometimes, it so happens that the car passes by me and then slows It gives me time to actually the whole name and the variant, guess what all features it may

It was my childhood play thing me and my friends used to just the name of a bike by hearing its melancholy. Most of the times, I be the only one to guess it correctly. on that transformed to guessing a car a distance by its rear end.

The I am telling you all this is because I failed to guess which car it The only thing that I guess was it has got its roots entrenched deep in Germany. The car in question out to be a Skoda Superb. Yes, the own Skoda Superb in India. as it was, I couldn’t wait to it and as luck would have it, got my approved as well.

As they “Beggars can’t be choosers”, I had to do with the mid of the line 1.8 TSI variant. Not a bad eh! Lets get down to the show,

Skoda Superb Looks

The new Superb in India is actually the generation one and now features the corporate of the company. It has chrome embellishments its grille. The quadrangular head flanking the grille house one of the powerful lights in its catergory and may be one

They also carry lamp washers, heated or whichever way you want it. There is a for day time running lamps the head lamp shroud for India, those have disconnected from the battery The single piece bumper big fog lamps as well as big, air dam slats.

If you would remove the and place two kidney mimics and a BMW then this car can be easily for the 5 series. No doubt in that. The is a creased unit featuring creases.

The Skoda Superb 1.8 TSI 16 inch multi spoke wheels whereas the top of the line V6 gets different alloy and 17 inch wheels. The turn are mounted on the outside rear mirrors. The door handles are colored and the door sills a chrome outline.

Starting to my point of obsession, it seems it has been inspired from and then I realize it, its parent Volkswagen, the Volkswagen Phaeton and off the Audi A4. Not a bad idea though. The lamp is split by the boot.

two exhausts for the Skoda Superb in I think there would be 4 for the V6

Skoda Superb Interiors

from the looks, the best that I look forward to in a car is the interiors. They are well and speaking of Skoda. they one of the best interiors in India the Skoda Superb in India no exception. This face model features beige as opposed to the dark that we been getting from Auto India so far. The is a mix and match of wood trim classy materials.

If given a chance, I would spent an entire life in the of this car. The fronts are at a considerable distance from the wheel that the small in stature would probably a big problem handling the car. Not for me

However I found that the are 12 way adjustable and they adjust for and lumbar support. Well, the even have memory in them. The 4 spoke steering is shared with all the other Auto India cars this one has steering mounted controls. The instrument panel is different from other however not by much.

It features a meter, odometer, fuel all the warning lights, tyre monitor, seat belt lights and many more. speaking, I am confused about the in this cabin since are so many like the multi function display, 12 CD audio system with aux and USB input, adjustable rear view leaving home lights

The front seats, even most of the Skoda Superb in India would be chauffeured, are good. Infact so much so most of the owners would be to fire the chauffer and drive it The automatic climate control works perfectly and there is a for even the rear seat The rear bench is perfectly and has enough space for three a kid.

I did try seating three of my in office and then Radhika, she of a short stature, was easily the passenger. Believe me, each one of was comfortable. The only grouse was the non rear head rests. is a provision for even placing an

The boot space is also at 545 liters. There are also split rear seats add to the convenience point. The boot lip is low and is a totally flat board makes easing luggage on it, a chore.

It is electrically operated as

Skoda Superb Handling and quality

`The Skoda is built on the same platform as the Passat. Now, I didn’t get the to drive the Volkswagen Passat have heard high about it from my colleagues. The Superb in India didn’t me. It has very good handling

I know for sure that the V6 beast gets 4 wheel system but the one I have now is only wheel drive. The hydraulically steering wheel is a joy to use. I say it was as communicative as BMWs unit. It for the right kind of feedback it was a bit heavy in parking speeds. It up nicely while on twisties or on

The chassis is also well out but then the car is a bit reluctant to turn in the It doesn’t seem to support driving. It seems more for giving that all important quality that buyers in segment expect.

Speaking of quality, small bumps do this big car however not overtly. the speeds build up, this car everything in its path. The suspension is quiet and goes about its very unobtrusively.

The cabin is also very and there is no wind or road save for some tyre

Skoda Superb Engine,Performance and efficiency

Now, the Skoda in India is offered with engine options. There is an all 2.0 liter Tdi diesel engine makes 140 Bhp and also 320 Nm of torque. It a 6 speed DSG automatic gearbox.

The trim is the 1.8 TSI petrol motor I have at my disposal now. It 160 Bhp of power and about 256 Nm of torque. on this engine later. The variant is the range topping 3.6 FSI which pumps out 260 Bhp and 376 Nm of torque, to have got bragging rights at the club.

It is mated to a 6 speed DSG gearbox.

Now, concentrating on the 1.8 TSI engine that we have it is one hell of a power house. It a 6 speed manual as well as transmission option. Skoda India have actually all their knowhow into flagship model in India. The one I is the automatic one with paddle into it.

Never once did I stressed out while driving it. The is one eager beaver and if the TSI motor is I can’t wait to get my hands, on the 3.6 FSI motor. The gear shift is too and barely perceptible.

The down are also very quick and the shifts make it all the more to use. The motor makes torque all along its rev range to the miser and the enthusiast. It goes 0-100 kmph in just 9.8

The top speed that it maxxed out is 210

Halting this 1765 kgs are ventilated disc brakes at the and solid discs at the rear. are assisted by a host of electronic like ABS, ESP, hydraulic brake assistant, brake assistant, traction and also anti slip With all these electronic assisting me, I didn’t have to about the stopping prowess of car.

Safety is also tended for with 4 air bags, cornering head lamps, sensors, acoustic warning for overrun speed, 3 point SRS belts with anti and pretensioning properties. There are other features to stop of this vehicle like motion sensor, engine with floating code tilt sensor and also controlled alarm.

Fuel isn’t a forte of TSI motors as we from the Skoda Laura still this car returned 9.1 in the city and 13.4 kmpl on the These were the figures with the air conditioner on at all the time and with a heavy right As discussed earlier, the TSI motor be driven with a light since this car just speed.

If you do manage to keep right foot light, you can definitely achieve double economy figures.

The Skoda in India is one status symbol. in the midlands of Germany or Czech it is used as a fleet vehicle. Auto India have a good name for themselves as an luxury car maker in India and the Superb just amplifies it. It is flag ship vehicle and make sense in respect to its expensive cousin namely the Passat.

Its other established competitors are the Accord, Toyota Camry and the Teana. It has got more space all the competition and is more luxurious all of these combined. It only out on the Skoda brand image is associated with poor sales service.

It has comparable economy with the others in its and offers 3 engine options the others offer only one or at the two options. It has got a wide array of bin and looks the part of a status If only Skoda Auto could improve the service they can double their for this SUPERB car.

The Superb price in India from Rs 18,28,563 for the base Superb 1.8 TFSI MT and goes up to Rs for the top end Skoda Superb 3.6 TFSI. is at par with the competition if not lower them. Skoda Auto should also up the number of it currently has in India.

As for me, I am still to see if Skoda would provide me a 3.6 TFSI Superb.
