First sketch of revised Skoda Superb released

First sketch of revised Skoda Superb released

Updated saloon car to benefit from visual tweaks, and will debut later this month.

Skoda has given a first glimpse of its upcoming updated Superb, set to be revealed in full later this month.

Though little information is known, the drawing hints at an updated front fascia — with revised headlights and a grille possibly featuring on the car. Skoda has also confirmed it will feature brand lettering in place of its traditional badge at the rear, a first for the Superb.

As for other updates to expect on the car, it’s possible that Skoda could introduce new technology to the machine — including its Active Info Display, which has featured on the recently-introduced Kodiaq vRS and Scala.

Powertrains are likely to remain the same as the existing model — currently consisting of 1.5-litre petrol and 2.0-litre petrol engines, plus a 2.0-litre diesel. Skoda could throw up a surprise and electrify that car, though this seems unlikely.

In terms of pricing, expect the new Superb to sit around the same as the current model — which starts from £22,945 in saloon form and £24,225 in estate guise.

Skoda will reveal the facelifted Superb during the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, taking place in the firm’s home country of the Czech Republic. It sponsors the event, taking place from May 10 to 26, and has done since 1993. It’s the first time it’s using it as a platform to unveil a new car, though.
