The Skoda model offensive continues: The new Skoda Superb and the Superb Combi have undergone a comprehensive facelift and will both celebrate their world premiere on 19th April 2013, the eve of the Shanghai Motor Show. The brand’s top model has fresh new Skoda Design, including a new interior and new technology features. The new Superb is to be launched in European markets at the end of June, 2013.

The Skoda Superb boasts a completely new front and rear. The front end, which has been completely redesigned up to the A-pillar, now looks much more distinctive. The grille, car logo, head and fog lights, bumpers, front fenders and bonnet are new. The distinctively drawn front with a significantly wider grille as well as the completely redesigned headlights create an assured appearance. Available for the first time in the Superb series are bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.

The rear of the Superb hatchback and combi has also been completely redesigned and made clear, tidy and precise. The taillights’ graphic has been reinterpreted to further emphasise the brand’s typical C-shape. This will be the first time in the Superb that three LED stripes create this shape. Two triangular elements in the hatch are another unmistakable feature of the new Skoda design.

Additionally, the Superb’s exterior is now available in two metallic finishes: metal grey and moon white. New 16- to 18-inch alloy wheels are also on offer. 

In the interior of the Skoda Superb, three- and four-spoke steering wheels are now available in a total of nine variations.  Additionally, there are nine new fabrics and patterns for the seat covers as well as new designs. In the highest level of trim, the Skoda Superb L&K, a new brown-ivory colour combination is available.

In terms of engines and drive technology, the Skoda Superb is even more attractive: Selected engines save more than 19 per cent fuel as compared to their predecessors. Also contributing to this is start–stop and kinetic energy recuperation technology, which will be standard in all Skoda Superb diesel engines and also the entry-level 1.4 TSI/92 kW petrol engine in EU countries. The Superb GreenLine consumes only 4.2 litres of diesel per 100 km, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 109 g/km.

The comfort offering in the new Superb has increased significantly with the latest-generation Automatic Parking Assistant now available in both the hatchback and the combi.

In addition, the new Superb offers superior comfort features such as an electric sunroof with integrated solar cells in the hatchback, the electric panoramic sunroof in the combi, the automatic lock and start system, KESSY, air conditioning and four modern audio and navigations systems: all the way to the top navigation system, Columbus, with 6.5” colour touch screen and integrated 30GB hard drive.
