styling and an updated powertrain, the newly refreshed ŠKODA Superb is a
luxurious model that ensures every drive feels special. Putting comfort and
efficiency at the top of its agenda, this is a family-friendly model that will
have you eager to step behind the wheel at every opportunity.
The latest iteration of the Superb still retains the Czech manufacturer’s family looks, with a sleek profile and clean, crisp lines giving both the hatchback and estate variants an aerodynamic quality. Upgrades include new LED Matrix headlights, which are slimmer and offer improved visibility, a refreshed bumper and a modified radiator grille, which creates a more sophisticated, mature look. Move around to the rear and you’ll find restyled taillights and chrome boot trim, which further adds to the model’s elegance.
The cabin’s premium feel still dominates your experience, with fine cloth upholstery, careful finishes and textured surfaces all making for a relaxing, comfortable space. Getting into position is simple thanks to height-adjustable front seats, and the multifunction steering wheel enables you to select audio functions effectively while staying firmly in control of the drive.
A new digital instrument cluster presents all the vehicle’s information in a more clear, precise manner than ever before, and with a revised infotainment screen available as standard, accessing your music and communication functions is easier.
Space, meanwhile, is unchanged; you’ll still benefit from generous head and legroom in both the front and rear, as well as an impressive boot and plenty of cubbies in which to store essential items. There’s even a ski hatch in the centre seat to accommodate your winter sports kit.
Six trim levels are on offer, each with an increasing level of technology. Entry level S variants offer a DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a Start/Stop system to help you reduce fuel consumption around town. SE models include dual-zone climate control parking sensors and adaptive cruise control, which makes long motorways journeys feel effortless by helping you maintain a constant speed and a safe distance from vehicles ahead.
SE L trim adds an Amundsen infotainment system with an integrated WiFi hotspot, which enables you to stay connected on the go. The flagship Laurin & Klement model treats you to three-zone climate control, Lane Keeping Assist, Park Assist and a rear-view camera for the ultimate in convenience and comfort.
Safety is covered too, with a host of standard measures in place, including Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Cornering Brake Control and more. Passive features, meanwhile, include seven airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchor points for keeping infants safe.
The biggest change to the ŠKODA Superb lies under the bonnet. From 2020, a plug-in hybrid powertrain will be added to the engine options, comprising a 1.4-litre petrol engine and electric motor. These offer a combined output of 215bhp and 400Nm of torque, delivering a sensationally pacey drive with significantly reduced emissions. The 13kWh battery provides an electric-only range of 34 miles too – plenty to get you around town.
Other engine options include two diesel variants and a 2.0-litre petrol unit, the 268bhp edition of which comes with all-wheel drive as standard. All come with a seven-speed automatic gearbox, which offers slick shifts for smooth acceleration.
