Skoda reveals new Superb luxury car

main image

Skoda has completely overhauled its luxurious large car, the Superb. Though the previous version was well regarded for its very high comfort levels, low running costs and strong value for money, Skoda claims that the new model has improved upon all of these traits. It’s also now even more spacious, thanks to a 28mm increase in length and a substantial 80mm longer wheelbase, which frees up more interior space.

The new Superb range will be available with four petrol and three diesel engines, varying from a 123bhp turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol and a 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel to a powerful petrol model with 276bhp. The most powerful petrol and the two strongest diesels will also be available with four-wheel drive. All engines bar the least powerful petrol will also be available with sister company Volkswagen’s slick-shifting ‘DSG’ automatic gearbox.

The level of standard equipment has also been boosted across the range with buyers able to choose from four specification levels – S, SE, SE L Executive and range-topping Laurin & Klement. S trim includes a digital radio, Bluetooth, a touchscreen media system, a trip computer, 16-inch alloy wheels and front fog lights. SE specification adds 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, electric folding wing mirrors and adaptive cruise control, which holds the car a safe distance behind the car ahed on the motorway.

SE L Executive models add a raft of high-end kit, such as xenon headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, heated leather seats, an electrically operated boot and a sat nav system with an eight-inch touchscreen. Meanwhile, Laurin & Klement models gain a heated windscreen, three-zone climate control, a 10-speaker sound system, a TV tuner and a host of safety kit, such as lane assist and park assist systems. 

The first new Skoda Superbs are set to be delivered to customers in September, with prices starting at £18,640 and rising to nearly £35,000.
