SKODA SUPERB SCOUT: a multifunctional lifestyle estate for any terrain
The advantages of all-wheel drive, even on dry roads The SUPERB SCOUT’s all-wheel drive, which comes as standard, doesn’t just offer enormous advantages when travelling off the beaten track, such as on gravel, slush and snow-covered slopes. Should the front wheels lose traction under normal driving conditions, an electronically controlled fifth-generation hydraulic multi-plate clutch automatically transmits some of the drive torque to the rear wheels within milliseconds. If necessary, up to 90 per cent of the power can be transmitted to the rear axle; up to 85 per cent can even be directed to a single wheel.
The ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT’s striking adventurous look provides numerous visual highlights. In addition to rugged bumpers at the front and rear, it is characterised by aluminium-effect underbody protection as well as additional plastic panels that protect the wheel arches, side sills and the lower sections of the doors. The interior features typical SCOUT style: it is characterised by special wood-effect decorative trims, the seats are covered with a specific fabric with contrasting stitching or, as an option, a combination of Alcantara and leather.
The ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT is available exclusively with either the model range’s most powerful diesel or petrol engine. The 2.0 TDI diesel engine delivers 140 kW (190 PS) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. The 2.0 TSI petrol engine boasts a power output of 200 kW (272 PS) and has a maximum torque of 350 Nm. In addition to all-wheel drive as standard, both variants come with a 7-speed DSG and are particularly efficient thanks to Stop/Start technology and brake energy recovery.
There is a tradition of offering rugged SCOUT models with off-road flair at ŠKODA.
