Launched last month in a special event held in Prague and the publicly introduced during this month Geneva Motor Show, the third generation Skdoa Superb is now ready to order in UK. Skoda announced full pricing and specification for its biggest model in range.
The new Superb will be available with seven engine options with additional option of DSG automatic and 4×4 transmissions on selected models. The engine range consists of four TSI petrol and three TDI diesel units with outputs ranging from 120PS for the entry level diesel 1.6 TDI to 280PS for the new 2.0 TSI engine.
In UK the range will include four trim levels: S, SE, SE L Executive and Laurin & Klement.
The new Superb is even more affordable with the new 1.4 TSI S model available for £18,640, which is £50 less than the current entry-level S model. All Superb models feature as standard alloy wheels, air conditioning, LED rear lights, DAB digital radio and a touchscreen infotainment system. Skoda’s comprehensive ESC safety system is also fitted across the range, and has the additional benefit of Multi-Collision brake included, triggering automatic brake intervention upon detection of a collision.
Skoda Superb SE
Next in range is the SE trim level, which starts at 21.190 GBP and adds 17-inch Helios alloy wheels, dual-zone air conditioning, rear parking sensors and cornering front fog lights, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and SmartLink – a system that allows smartphone owners to show their phone’s display on the car’s infotainment screen.
All SE models now also include two umbrellas, one stowed in each of the front doors, a feature only rivalled by the likes of Rolls Royce.
Skoda Superb SE L Executive
Next in range is the SE L Executive trim, which comes with Bi-Xenon headlights with AFS and LED daytime running lights, leather upholstery with heated seats and Columbus satellite navigation with 8-inch touchscreen. Starting from 24.220 pounds, SE L Executive models also include 18-inch Zenith alloy wheels, electrically operated boot and Drive mode selection.
Skoda Superb Laurin & Klement
As in every Skoda model, the Laurin & Klement trim sits at the top of the range. It is the highest grade and includes 18-inch Pegasus anthracite alloy wheels, tri-zone climate control, 10-speaker CANTON sound system and piano black decorative inserts, blind spot detection, Lane assist, Park assist, KESSY keyless entry and start system, TV tuner and Virtual pedal.
