New Skoda Superb Scout joins facelifted line-up

The rugged, off-road-inspired Skoda Superb Scout has arrived as part of the Czech brand's refreshed flagship range

Skoda has revealed off-road-inspired Superb Scout. It sits at the top of the newly-facelifted Superb range and will be available exclusively as an all-wheel-drive estate when it goes on sale at the end of 2019. 

This is the first time Skoda has offered its flagship model in rugged Scout trim. Like the old Octavia Scout, features include a suite of hard-wearing exterior body mouldings, a lifted suspension set-up, 18-inch alloy wheels, underbody protection and a revised interior. Buyers also have the option to spec an exclusive Metallic Tangerine Orange paint finish.

Only two engines are available, with the choice of Skoda’s most powerful petrol or diesel engine. Buyers can choose from either a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel unit with 188bhp and 400Nm of torque, or a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 268bhp and 350Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a seven-speed DSG and an all-wheel-drive system and both can tow loads of up to 2,200kg.

The Superb Scout’s Drive Mode Select system also gets a rethink over the standard car’s with a new Off-Road driving mode, which optimises the four-wheel-drive system for use on loose terrain. The Volkswagen Group’s Dynamic Chassis Control system is also available as an optional extra, adding adaptive dampers.

Interior revisions over the standard Superb include standard-fitment heated front seats, a wood-effect dashboard trim, and unique upholstery. Optional extras include Alcantara and leather-trimmed seats, an automatic electrically-opening tailgate, a retractable tow-bar and Skoda’s Sleep Package, which provides a set of larger headrests and a blanket.

Although previous Skoda Scout models have been sold in the UK, there is no confirmation yet on whether the Superb Scout will reach our shores.
