Czech car maker Skoda wants to generate enough buzz about its all new Superb before the Auto Expo next month. Skoda`s official pages on Facebook and Twitter have started teasing about the Superb.The upgraded Yeti will also be showcased alongside the Superb.
The Superb will have changes on the inside as well as the outside. Continuing with the latest “in” thing with car makers, the superb will get the familiar Skoda family look in the front. LEDs in the headlamp cluster and and a redesigned grille look aggressive yet have a luxurious vibe. The new bumper, fog lamps and the air-intake receive minor tweaks.
The LEDs continue to the rear where they sit along with the standard bulbs to make a very different looking cluster. The dual opening boot-lid will be continued while the license plate has been moved to the bumper from the boot-lid.
The people at skoda responsible for masking the car have done a very good job. Few details are known about what the interiors will look like but expect some more beige and a European feel inside the cabin.
Skoda does not feel it needs to upgrade the engine options on offer and we agree. Both, the 1.8 litre TSI engine and the 2.0 litre TDI are well suited for the job on hand. The petrol engine produces 160bhp and the Diesel manages 140bhp and 320 Nm of torque.
Skoda offers an option of manual or automatic (DSG) gearbox mated to the present Petrol Superb and it will be continued as it is. The diesel and the petrol automatic `boxes come with Tiptronic gear change system which allows the driver to manually change the gears if wanted.
The superb has been ruling the roost since its launch, way back in 2004 and continues to do so. High-end luxury features like the umbrella in the doors and more leg space for the rear passengers as compared to the S-class (101cm vs 96cm) made it quite a hit with people looking for affordable luxury vehicles.
