- 2014 Skoda Superb Outdoor 4x4 touches down in Australia as a limited-edition model after February unveiling.
Skoda’s jacked-up Superb 4x4 Outdoor will hit Australia in October, entering as a range-topping special-edition model.
Priced at $52,690 before on-roads, the 4x4 Outdoor is also packing an official drive-away price of $55,690.
Setting the 4x4 Outdoor apart from the regular range is its Haldex all-wheel-drive system, with an electronically actuated multi-disc clutch that split torque between all four individual wheels.
In normal driving, motivation goes mostly to the front axle, while the rear axle is uncoupled. The Haldex clutch then engages the rear-axle if necessary.
Based on the top-shelf 125kW/350Nm 125TDI Superb Elegance, the 4x4 Outdoor adds adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with the Columbus Satellite Navigation system, and heated seats.
The Superb 4x4 Outdoor also gets the Driver Pack (KESSY standard), ordinarily an on Elegance models, as a standard feature.
Already standard with the Elegance trim are a 10-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, and automated parking assistances.
Features are rounded out by special cladding for extra protection and a ruggedised look, along with 18-inch wheels and an Alcantara/leather-appointed upholstery in the cabin.
Fuel use with the 4x4 Outdoor is listed at 6.5 l/100km on the combined cycle - up from 5.5 in the lower Elegance wagon.
