Skoda Superb Estate named Best Car in its Class
Skoda Superb Estate grabbed another award at the Practical Caravan Towcar Awards 2010. The Superb Estate 2.0 TDI CR 170 SE was named best car in the 1575-1724kg class. There is no doubt, that Superb is a perfect automobile with so many awards.
The Practical Caravan awards, backed by What Car? and The Camping and Caravanning Club, are based on vigorous and thorough towcar assessment. Each car is tested by a panel of six judges for its towing ability, buying and owning costs, drive quality when not towing and practicality.
"The estate is simply huge. There are 633 litres with the seats upright and a huge 1865 litres if they are folded forward. Rear-seat space is exceptional for a family estate, with enough head- and legroom to rival some luxury cars. Size isn't everything, however, and fortunately the Superb tows, well, superbly… The Škoda's stability was even more impressive than its acceleration." said Practical Caravan. The judges were also impressed by the Superb Estate's value for money and fuel economy, so the vehicle immediately won their hearts.
The 2.0 liter TDI engine delivers 170hp and 350Nm of torque between 1750 and 2500rpm. The big Estate accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 8.8 seconds and the top speed is 222km/h. All this performance comes in extraordinary good fuel consumption - city cycle - 7.8, highway cycle - 4.6 and combined is 6.0 liter per 100 km.
