2020 Skoda Superb SCOUT – Features, Design and Interior. After the old Superb Outdoor of the previous generation, Skoda is going down the rugged wagon road one more time for its flagship model. Meet the first-ever Superb Scout, designed for those who want some of the off-road attributes available in the Kodiaq but are not fond of SUVs. It gets a series of upgrades over the standard Superb Combi, including the essential all-wheel-drive as standard equipment.
Aside from the usual plastic body cladding you’ll also find on the heavily related Volkswagen Passat Alltrack, the Superb Scout features a reworked suspension adding 15 millimeters (0.6 inches) of ground clearance. Skoda has gone a step further as there’s even an off-road mode for when the going gets tough, while the underbody protection for the engine and undercarriage should come in handy when dealing with bumpy terrain.
To further set it apart from the standard Superb Combi, the new Scout has bespoke 18-inch wheels as standard and optional 19-inch featuring a standard two-tone finish that’s optionally available for the smaller set as well. The vibrant Tangerine Orange paint scheme is also exclusive to the Scout, as are several customization options.
The interior is typical Superb Combi affair, but with some minor changes such as the wood-effect decorate strips depicting the Scout logo, along with a specific fabric seat upholstery with contrasting stitching. At an additional cost, buyers will be able to order seats covered in a combination of leather and Alcantara with brown stitching.
Further denoting it’s more than just a simple Superb wagon will be the dedicated off-road screens in the infotainment system providing the driver with all the relevant info whenever tackling rough roads.
Joining the three other Scout models based on the Octavia, Karoq, and Kodiaq, the new Superb Scout will only be available with the top-tier engines, namely the 2.0 TSI and the 2.0 TDI. The former is rated at 272 horsepower (200 kilowatts) and 350 Newton-meters (258 pound-feet) torque, while the latter produces 190 hp (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). In both cases, the engines are linked exclusively to a seven-speed DSG.
The Skoda Superb Scout will go on sale later this year along with the regular revised versions of the brand’s flagship model. The plug-in hybrid Superb iV is due early 2020.
