2018 Skoda Superb to receive new tech updates and infotainment system

In a bid to stay fresh and more relevant in today’s segment, Skoda is giving the Superb a mini makeover for the 2018 model year. Similar to the newly refreshed Octavia and Kodiaq, the iconic Superb will be featuring new technologies and premium infotainment system for the Columbus, Bolero, Amundsen and Swing.

To start with, Skoda replaces the outdated 8.0-inch infotainment system with the latest 9.2-inch flush glass high resolution infotainment screen on the Columbus. There are also the newly updated Bolero and Amundsen infotainment systems with larger displays measuring 6.5- 8 inches wide. Its entry level version, the Superb Swing is also getting a new 6.5-inch diagonal display.

As part of the mini overhaul, the Superb for the first time will come with Park Distance Control and Maneuver Assist in extended mode. This new smart feature can sense if there are obstacles and at the same time, cautions the driver with an audio and visual alert. To prevent crash, the system is programmed to activate the brakes in case the driver disregards the early warning.

Skoda may pursue plan to build more RS models, Superb might be next!

Skoda is considering RS versions of Super executive car and Kodiaq SUV. Sportiness is increasingly becoming a key factor for hot sales at Czech carmaker Skoda. In fact, the RS models of Skoda’s Octavia nameplate (RS 220 and RS 230) have been a major source of sales for the company. In addition, the sales gap between the most popular Octavia and the RS model is also substantial.

Thus, we cannot blame Skoda if it is considering creating RS sporty versions of its other nameplates. After all, these RS models should allow the Czech carmaker to further increase its appeal and at the same time significantly hike its sales.

Can anyone confirm that Skoda is planning to create more RS versions of its other models? If we ask Michael Irmer, Director of Skoda Australia, he would say yes. He recently told the people at Motoring that the Czech carmaker is actively researching the possibility of building its next RS model.

TNS said that Skoda offered free test drives to those influential in the digital world ahead of the launch of its flagship model so that they can help spread the word. Skoda gave emphasis to the more advanced equipment and its stylish design compared to the older versions.

The new Superb uses semi-autonomous driving technology that’s typically featured in the higher-priced vehicles. Mercedes took second place with its GLE, the replacement for the M class SUV. The GLE was seen in the trailer for the "Jurassic World" movie.
