Skoda’s upcoming Superb flagship model will come equipped with an innovative tailgate opening system, which is called TwinDoor.
It is, actually, a single door but it can be opened in two ways: like a normal trunk lid or like a rear hatch, making accessing the 565 liters of cargo space a little bit easier.
There is also a new photo of the vehicle’s interior.
As you can see, the 2008 Skoda Superb will not share its interior with neither of VAG’s models (the instrument cluster looks similar to the one installed on the current VW Passat, though, and there is that elusive flavor of the 2008 Audi A4, which is currently offered in the United States, although, surprisingly, the Czech marque’s interior looks a lot classier and even expensive than that of the outgoing Audi still selling in the U.S.).
The overall design is rather elegant and stylish, although the plastic could have been better, and changing the factory-installed multimedia system for an aftermarket solution will be a real pain in the brain.
Yet, most future owners may consider leaving the original audio system alone. It is reported, that the 2008 Superb will get Volkswagen’s premium HDD-based RNS 510 multimedia navigation system, which will also be soon available with 2008 VW Tiguan.
Equipped with a 30GB hard drive (mostly for mapping, I suppose), the system also features an SD-card support and USB media playback. Models for the North American market will also have an optional real-time traffic service courtesy of Sirius.
The new Superb will be officially presented to the public at the upcoming motor show in Geneva.
