20 Jul 2020. My test car has a few easy-to-justify options, which despite a price hike earlier this year, keep the car as-tested under the £40,000 VED threshold. Introduction. Though in Estate guise, like it’s being tested in here, 0-60mph takes a respectable 7.6 seconds, while it would reach a claimed top speed of 138mph. Keen-eyed Skoda fans will notice the iV badge and the solid front ‘grille’, which hides the well positioned charging port.
Skoda >> Superb >> Skoda Superb iV hybrid (2020) Skoda takes its first electric steps with the plug-in hybrid Superb. Words: Neil Briscoe - @neilmbriscoe Published on: November 29, 2019. Skoda might have been a bit slow to venture into the world of electrified models, but with its new Citigo-e iV and Skoda Superb plug-in hybrid, this firm is quickly catching up with those that have been there years.. If you're a medium-haul commuter, and have a driveway so you can charge at home, there's very little reason not to buy one of these.
2019 Skoda Superb Hybrid Review. It's a handsome beast - sleeker in person than you're expecting, and it responds well to some options. There’s not much change inside either, apart from a few PHEV-specific displays on the optional Virtual Cockpit fitted to our test car. Impressively, it’s not been hard to keep fuel economy around 50mpg most of the time, even without religiously charging the car, and that’s despite the iV weighing more than 200kg on top of the lightest Superb. It's cheaper than the mechanically identical Passat GTE for example, and it's available across Ambition, Style, Sportline and Laurin & Klement model lines. Most likely, in real-world conditions, you'll manage more like 45-50km, and thanks to some extended running on Dutch motorways at speeds of up to 130km/h, we recorded 35km from a 98 per cent charged battery before the Superb asked for petrol assistance. And now I’ve set up a user profile for the Skoda Connect app, the system takes a bit too long to boot up. By Hank December 28, 2017 Plug-in Hybrid Cars, Skoda No Comments. Because the charging flap for the battery is tucked behind the radiator grille, there's really only the 'iV' badge on the boot to give the game away. However, although the system operates wirelessly, there’s no wireless charging in the car, so topping up your phone’s battery on the go still requires a lead. Meanwhile at the top of the range the Laurin & Klement specification brings ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, park assist and a Canton sound system, and certainly leaves you wanting for very little. That might sound like a huge reduction, but the only real difference lies with the lack of underfloor storage, which is taken up by the charging cables and batteries. I’m not totally sold on the Superb’s looks; it’s far from ugly, but can seem a little oddly proportioned from some angles. We try out the new M550i xDrive to find out…, 1.4-litre 4cyl turbo plus e-motor, 215bhp, 19-inch Canopus alloy wheels (£695), LED package plus (£395), Moon White metallic paint (£595), rear parking camera (£385), Virtual Cockpit (£475). Overall Auto Express Rating.
The iV version comes with standard digital instruments and the eight-inch central touchscreen, so the cabin looks expensive as you sit in. A vast load space has long been a Superb calling card, but the need to package the large 13kWh battery, as well as a 50-litre fuel tank, means that something has to give, and that something is the boot. You'll have to be paying quite close attention to tell the Skoda Superb iV plug-in hybrid apart from its more conventionally-powered brethren.
While it’s one of the more powerful Superb variants, the additional batteries numb performance somewhat. The trim quality impresses, while all dials and switches are clear to use, though the glossy 9.2-inch touchscreen can occasionally prove to be not especially intuitive while on the move.
We think so. Better yet, if your daily commute is relatively short, and you can charge up at work, you could conceivably make it through the week without ever using the petrol engine - which is, of course, the point. The Skoda Superb iV is smooth, refined, economical (if you keep it charged regularly) and still has that soothingly comfortable and beautifully made cabin.
