New ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT added to SUPERB family for the first time

› Multifunctional lifestyle estate with raised ground clearance and all-wheel drive

› Rugged off-road-look body enhancements and 18-inch alloy wheels

› New metallic Tangerine Orange finish available exclusively for the SUPERB SCOUT

Mladá Boleslav/Bratislava, 23 May 2019 – ŠKODA is offering its flagship model for the first

time as a rugged SCOUT variant. Elegant design and off-road virtues are perfectly combined

into one multifunctional and robust lifestyle car – the new SUPERB SCOUT. Standard

equipment for the SUPERB SCOUT, which is exclusively available as an all-wheel-drive

estate, includes rugged body enhancements, 18-inch Braga alloy wheels, a Rough-Road

package featuring an added 15 mm of ground clearance, and a special SCOUT look in the

interior. The new metallic Tangerine Orange finish is also exclusive to the SCOUT.

By launching the ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT, the Czech brand is adding a new top model to

its range of rugged off-road cars. It combines the generous amount of space offered by the elegant

ŠKODA SUPERB COMBI with the virtues and flair of an off-road adventurer, yet the length and

width remain the same. The ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT cuts a fine figure off-road thanks to

all-wheel drive and a Rough-Road package, which comes as standard and provides underbody

protection for the engine as well as undercarriage when driving on rougher terrain, and raises the

ground clearance by 15 mm. This is supported by an additional Off-Road mode for Driving Mode

Select. Dynamic Chassis Control is available as an option.

Two powerful yet efficient engines

The ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT is available exclusively with either the model range’s most powerful

diesel or petrol engine. The 2.0 TDI diesel engine delivers 140 kW (190 PS) and transfers its

maximum torque of 400 Nm to all four wheels via a 7-speed DSG. The 2.0 TDI is fitted with

an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection and a diesel particulate filter, meaning it fulfils

the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.

The 2.0 TSI petrol engine boasts a power output of 200 kW (272 PS) and has a maximum torque

of 350 Nm. In addition to all-wheel drive, it also comes with a 7-speed DSG. Equipped with a petrol

particulate filter, the 2.0 TSI fulfils the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard too. Featuring Stop/Start

technology and brake energy recovery, both of the engines available for the

ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT are particularly efficient.

Rugged body enhancements, aluminium look and chrome elements

In keeping with the style of the ŠKODA’s familiar SCOUT models, the new SUPERB SCOUT also

has a striking off-road appearance. As with all new SUPERBs, the redesigned, enlarged ŠKODA

grille protrudes further down into the front bumper and, just like in the SPORTLINE, features black

double slats – but this time framed by a chrome trim. Unlike the other members of the SUPERB

family, the SCOUT showcases redesigned, rugged front and rear bumpers, each with

aluminium-effect underbody protection. Furthermore, additional plastic trims protect the wheel

arches, side sills and the lower part of the doors. The roof rails and window frames are

chrome-plated, providing exquisite highlights. The wing mirror housings shine in an aluminium

look and there are special SCOUT badges on the wings.

The new SUPERB SCOUT comes with 18-inch Braga alloy wheels as standard, which are also

optionally available in a two-tone version. The new two-tone, 19-inch Manaslu alloys and exclusive

metallic Tangerine Orange body finish are further customisation options. The SUPERB SCOUT

is ideal for towing and can pull a weight of 2,200 kg; its optional retractable tow bar is mechanically


Wood effect and SCOUT-specific seats in the interior

On the inside, the ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT greets its passengers with special, wood-effect

decorative strips that bear the SCOUT logo just like the front seats. The seat covers are made

of a SCOUT-specific fabric with contrasting stitching. As an option, Alcantara®/leather seats with

brown contrasting stitching and, for the first time, new piping in a contrasting colour on the front

of the front seats are also available. Heated front seats come as standard; there is the option

of heated outer rear seats too. The central display is fitted with additional off-road screens and

the driver is greeted by a special welcome logo on the display when entering the car.

The high level of comfort for the rear passengers, who enjoy a generous amount of kneeroom,

can be further increased using some of the many ŠKODA-typical Simply Clever ideas. For

example, if desired the front passenger seat can be electrically adjusted from the rear and the

optional Sleep package provides comfortable, larger headrests and a blanket. Just like all other

estate versions of the SUPERB, the SCOUT features the largest boot in its segment – with

a capacity of 660 to 1,950 l. The tailgate can be electrically operated; as an option, it can also

be opened using the Virtual Pedal by waving a foot under the rear bumper.

2006: ŠKODA’s first SCOUT model steps onto the automotive stage

There is already a tradition of rugged SCOUT models with off-road flair at ŠKODA. 13 years ago,

the second-generation ŠKODA OCTAVIA was introduced with a rugged off-road look for the first

time. The lifestyle-focused off-roader immediately gained a wide fan base. The popularity of this

estate, fitted with all-wheel drive as standard, continued smoothly into the third generation of the

OCTAVIA that followed. After the launch of the KODIAQ (2017) and KAROQ (2018), the Czech

car manufacturer also successfully added the SCOUT concept to its SUV models.
