Hardly any other brand is currently mixing up the market like the VW subsidiary from the Czech Republic. The new Superb has just been presented - we have already driven it - you wonder what the new Combi version will look like? And how about the vRS version of the spacious station wagon?
Will he look like this?
Škoda Superb Combi vRS
We demand the “Volks-Sport-Combi!
mein-auto-blog has had a first design sketch made. Could one Superb Combi vRS look like this? We are of course not sure, because so far there are only Erlkönig photos of the upcoming Superb Combi. But - based on these photos and the current vRS design line - we imagine the Superb Combi vRS as follows:
Sporty honeycomb grill in the lower bumper, plus a striking daytime running light in LED version. The front bumper leans in the design on the Škoda Octavia vRS at best, but in the best case will get a couple of striking carbon pinball machines for a sportier look. In the best case scenario, the 20 ″ wheels are particularly sturdy and stocky in the wheel arch.
From behind, the massive tailpipes should catch your eye. At the rear should provide a significantly enlarged wing for downforce. In the most beautiful case, the tail gets a portion of Sichtcarbon from in the area of the diffuser. The tail lights converge in the tailgate and the rear window is framed by two tear-off edges.
And what heart is beating under the hood?
The days of the V (R) 6 under the front hood are over, so we have to say goodbye to the 3.6 liter six-cylinder. So far, Škoda has not had a Superb vRS on offer, but we are convinced - the new Superb will also be offered as a vRS. The success of the Octavia vRS makes this decision inevitable.
Since the Superb, like the Audi TT, is based on the VW Group's MQB kit, a five-cylinder turbo engine would be possible for the Superb vRS! A 2.5 liter five-cylinder with a good 350 hp would be the right engine for the sporty top variant from Škoda.
We would combine this with an 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the all-wheel drive with Haldex clutch. The 5 cylinder could provide just over 500 Nm for a more than decent acceleration.
But so far Škoda has not slipped a word on a vRS version of the Superb, let's see if it stays that way.
