Skoda Superb 2.0 TSI
With the BS6 era, the Skoda range went petrol-only, ensuring its top-of-the-line model, the Superb, had to dig out the 2.0-liter diesel engine. It also replaces the 1.8-liter TSI turbo-petrol generator with a new 2.0-liter TSI engine. We’ve had the chance to bring the latest Skoda Superb through its paces in our real-world testing recently and see how powerful it is.
The Excellent we had was Laurin & Klement ‘s top-spec, albeit somewhat heavier version. The Superb is a big vehicle, with a luxury sedan providing lots of space, and it does factor into the estimates of the mileage. Understandably, the premium family sedan is almost 4kmpl in city driving conditions under the claimed fuel efficiency of 15.10kmpl. However, thanks to the 7-speed gearbox, the powertrain can boost the Superb’s mileage by more than 5kmpl to achieve more than 16kmpl in motorway driving conditions.
The road mileage is especially remarkable considering that the reported fuel efficiency tests are conducted in a tightly regulated fashion, and recreating these conditions in the real world is almost impossible.
