There’s another new face on the Practical Caravan fleet, a Skoda Superb, writes Alyson Warnock. Ours is the four-wheel-drive model in SE trim, which includes alloy wheels, climate control, cruise control and rear parking sensors all as standard.
The Skoda’s kerbweight is 1647kg with an 85% match of 1400kg so most family caravans can be towed safely. The 170bhp diesel engine pulls reliably, producing 258lb.ft of torque from less than 2000rpm.
It impressed us when towing our Elddis Xplore 544 (MTPLM 1350kg). You’ll see more of the Skoda in coming issues, including our Towcar Awards next month.
Power 170bhp @ 4200rpm
