Skoda’s model offensive continues which the launch of the new Skoda Superb. Having undergone a comprehensive facelift, both Hatch and Estate versions are set to make their world premieres on 19th April 2013, on the eve of the Shanghai Motor Show. Skoda’s flagship model impresses with a fresh and attractive design, a new interior and new technology features. The new Superb will be launched in European markets at the end of June 2013.
The design of the Skoda Superb Hatch and the Skoda Superb Estate endows them with an assured presence and resolutely demonstrates their reputation as the flagships of the brand. The new Superb impresses with improved fuel economy and features new solutions in terms of technology. At the same time, the Superb confirms all the good values that have made this model line a success for 12 years now.
The Skoda Superb boasts a completely new front and rear. Elements of the brand’s new design language are clearly visible: clear lines, precise quality and balanced proportions. The front of the car, which has been completely redesigned up to the A-pillar, looks much more distinctive.
The grille, car logo, head and fog lights, bumpers, front wings and bonnet are new. The distinctively drawn front with a significantly wider grille as well as the completely redesigned headlights creates an assured appearance. Available for the first time in the Superb line-up are bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.
The rear of the Superb Hatch and Estate has also been completely redesigned with a focus on clear, tidy and precise lines. The rear light graphic has been reinterpreted to further emphasise the brand’s typical C-shape. This will be the first time in the Superb that LED stripes create this shape, and are fitted as standard on all models. Two triangular elements on the Hatch are another unmistakable feature of the new Skoda design.
In terms of engines and drive technology, the Skoda Superb is even more attractive: Selected engines save more than 19% fuel when compared to their predecessors. Contributing to this is Start–stop and kinetic energy recuperation technology, which will be standard in all Skoda Superb diesel engines, in addition to the entry-level 1.4 TSI 125PS petrol engine in EU countries.
The Superb GreenLine offers fuel consumption of just 67.3 mpg, with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km.
The 2.0 TDI 140PS diesel engine now features a manual transmission in the 4×4 version. Additionally, the 2.0 TDI 170PS 4×4 diesel now comes with a six-speed DSG dual clutch transmission.
