The facelifted Skoda Superb, which is set to make its world premiere at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show, offers 19% higher efficiency than the previous model. There will be new front and rear styling for the Skoda Superb hatchback as well as the Superb estate in order to have the flagship model be aligned with the newest design language for the marque.
According to Skoda, the Superb received a totally new redesign from its nose until its pillars. The most major features include a new grille, bumpers and headlights, which are currently offered as bi-xenon units with integrated LED strips. Among the changes to its rear are new rear lights with LED graphics that form a ‘C’ shape.
In addition, the model is available with new paint colours, alloy wheel designs and interior trim fabrics. All of the diesel models in the new 2014 Skoda Superb lineup have stop-start and energy recuperation technology as standard equipment.
The fuel economy for the 1.6-litre Superb Greenline model was improved by 3.1mpg to 67.3mpg while carbon emissions have fallen to 109g/km. Under the hood, the model will be equipped with a manual transmission in 2.0-litre TDI 138bhp 4x4 models.
Meanwhile, the 167bhp versions of the same powertrain are available with a six-speed DSG gearbox. Changes to its equipment include the use of park assist, which could already support parallel and bay parking and also assists with the entry and exit of parking spaces. The rear seat passengers are capable of shifting the front passenger seat through electronic means.
