If I were to ever score a date with one of those girls who I know
was totally out of my league, the thing I would be most choosy about would be
the car in which I would pick her up. There are a slew of choices I could go
with, but getting that right first impression is an elusive one. Ideally, I
would want something classy, elegant and yet aggressive, something which you
would find Christian Grey driving around in-- Something which goes by the name
Skoda's flagship model Superb is quintessential in every respect.
The nature of this machine is tamed yet it can unleash brute performance at the
flick of a lever and dominate the road with beastly power. We got our hands on the
2.0L TDI, 4 cylinder, turbocharged, diesel top end L&K variant with us. It
belts out a massive 350Nm of torque from 1500 - 3500rpm and a sleek 174.5bhp
from 3600 - 4000rpm. The power delivery is seamless and feels like a surge
right from the word go. Adding to the pleasure is a 6-Speed DSG gearbox which
has been mated to this engine for a more refined drive experience. If you
haven't heard about the DSG transmission, let me tell you it is one of the
smoothest gearboxes I have ever come across. Gear shifts are seamless, as
smooth as a baby's bottom sliding over melted butter. The car also offers a
sports mode along with paddle shifters.
Even to look at, the Superb is svelte. Featuring smooth and chiseled
lines that add to the dapper character this sedan has a lot going for it. A
clean and straight belt line running from the front, along the side, right to
the rear, personifies its elegance in a whetted fashion. Housing projector
headlamps in the front with LED DRLs, the fascia of the Superb is imposing and
bold. The rear LED tail lamps also add flavor to its sharp design and give it
an awe inspiring persona. Step into the cabin and its warm earthy interiors
ooze of class and finesse. A rich blend of black and beige blend technology
seamlessly for a opulent user experience. Featuring some top class kit, the Skoda
Superb gets ample of knobs, buttons and functions to play around with. For
convenience, consumers get a three zone automatic climate control, power
adjusted front seats with a memory function for the driver's seat, virtual
pedal for boot lid release which opens up 625 litres of boot space and many
more such handy functions to ease daily usage.
The sedan rides on a mildly soft suspension which proved great to
drive on Indian roads. It gobbles up most undulations and bumps quite easily
and can tackle the worst of terrain quite well. With discs on all four wheels,
the Superb gets potent braking which is progressive in nature and extremely
reliable. Since this vehicle can gather high speeds pretty easily the well
engineered brakes also aid driver confidence. Skoda has also ensured a very
safe cabin for occupants, giving the Superb safety features like 8 airbags
(Driver, co-driver, 2 front seat, 2 back seat and 2 curtain airbags). Apart
from airbags, the saloon gets features like a driver attention assist, ABS with
EBD, Hill Hold and Descent control, Multi-Collision braking and adaptive
The Skoda Superb offers ample of room for occupants and the plush
upholstery ensures you are more than comfy in its well endowed cabin. Skoda has
also catered to some neatly tucked away storage spaces and a host of
accessories to personalise your experience with the saloon. An enticing and
well rounded package is what the Skoda Superb offers its buyers. It has just
the right levels of flair and panache to woo you into digging deep through
those pockets but at the end is worth every rupee you will shell out.
