The monsoons are here and umbrellas will become part of our daily luggage. Carrying a dry umbrella is fine but when it becomes wet and you have to take it inside your car, you will always worry about the car's carpet getting wet or the seat becoming soggy. Skoda has an interesting feature specially for its Superb customers.
The Skoda Superb has a wet umbrella holder in the rear door. You can store an umbrella inside the holder and retrieve it whenever you want it. Whenever you enter the Superb from the rain, all you need to do is fold the umbrella properly and insert in to the umbrella holder.
If you were wondering if the the Skoda Superb's door or interiors will get spoilt by the wet umbrella, you do need to worry. As Skoda has designed a drainage system that routes the water seeping from the umbrella out of the car without getting in contact with other car parts.
The Superb's umbrella holder is a feature that is available only in some premium cars. Notable ones are the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Ghost and the Bentley Mulsanne. You need to remember that the Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars cost more than Rs.1.5 crores while the Skoda Superb's starting price is Rs.18 lakhs.
The Skoda Superb's umbrella holder is not the only interesting feature in the premium sedan. It is available with several features including automatic front wiper system with rain sensor, CatVision, foldable roof handles, GSM telephone with Bluetooth, retractable screens for windscreens, 12-way electrically adjustable front seats, Electric sunroof with bounce-back system and many more.
