Škoda Superb Estate L&K

Škoda has unveiled the Superb Estate Laurin & Klement at the Autosalon Brno, which runs from the 4th to the 9th of June.

Named after the founders of the company that eventually became Škoda Auto, the Laurin & Klement brings some added luxury to the Superb range. Distinguishing it externally are 18” Sirius alloy wheels, a chrome grille and some subtle badges.

The spacious interior of the Superb is already a very nice place to sit, with Volkswagen-rivalling levels of fit and finish. For the Laurin & Klement, it’s enhanced further by stainless steel door sills and leather upholstery in a shade called Magnetic Brown. That colour looks much better than perhaps it sounds, and at least Škoda is trying something other than the usual blacks or beiges.

As befits a range-topping model, engines are restricted to the more powerful selections from the Superb line-up. For petrol fans, there’s either the four-cylinder 197 bhp (147 kW / 200 PS) 2.0 TSI or the six-cylinder 256 bhp (191 kW / 260 PS) 3.6 FSI with all-wheel drive, both of which feature the DSG automatic transmission as standard.

Alternatively, the one diesel on offer is the 167 bhp (125 kW / 170 PS) 2.0 TDI CR. It’s available with a choice of six-speed manual or DSG automatic transmissions, and will doubtless be the big seller in Europe.
