Move over, Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon! New Highway Patrol cop car confirmed as WA Police adds 2022 Skoda Superb wagon to force

The Skoda Superb wagon is now part of WA Police’s Highway Patrol fleet.

Western Australians have a new Highway Patrol cop car to be on the lookout for, as WA Police has taken delivery of a new fleet of Skoda Superb wagons.

The Superb wagons join WA Police’s other Highway Patrol vehicles, Kia Stinger sedans, with both models succeeding the homegrown Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon large cars of years gone by.

Importantly, this marks Skoda Australia’s first large-scale sale to a local law enforcement agency, with WA Police having ordered 55 Superb wagons for its Highway Patrol division and a further 10 expected later.

Skoda Australia director Michael Irmer said: “Skoda could hope for no more resounding endorsement of our Superb than its selection by WAPOL.

“To be the car of choice for the officers who serve the great state of Western Australia is an honour.”

The Superb wagons in question are of the familiar 206TSI Sportline variety ($62,590 plus on-road costs), but they differ from what private buyers get by removing the Canton premium sound system’s subwoofer to make room for a police-specification dual battery.

Aside from the obvious livery, the Superb wagons are otherwise no different, powered by the same 206kW/350Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine.

With a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system in tow, the Superb wagons can sprint from a standstill to 100km/h in 5.8 seconds.
