The Skoda Superb, as its name suggests, is one of the best cars around as accredited by various magazines. Though it is already good as it is, Skoda is still continuously improving it by giving it an update. The new changes include a new redesigned front-end and rear-end, new and fresh interior trim and also an updated range of engines. The new Superb will first be previewed at the day before the Shanghai Motor Show (19th of April) and will hit UK showrooms at the end of June.

Changes to the front end include a wider grille, new badge and also headlights. The headlights are changed to include bi-xenon bulbs with LED running lights. The fog lights are also reshaped to be squarer with a chrome bar running across the bumper air vents. A new bonnet is also included.
The rear has also been updated. The number plate has been moved up giving the rear bumper a smooth clean surface. New LED tail lights also complete the rear. The boring wheels have been changed for a new set of redesigned alloy units and the car is now available in two paint options; Meteor Grey and Moon White.
Not every engine in the lineup is tweaked. However all the diesel engines and 1.4 TSI petrol engine now come standard with stop-start and kinetic energy regeneration. This improves fuel efficiency by almost up to 19%. The Superb GreenLine trim travels 67.3mpg and returns just 109g/km of CO2 in emissions. The 138bhp 2.0 TDI model is now available with a six-speed manual transmission. The 168bhp version of the 2.0 TDI however gets a six-speed DSG transmission.
Interior trimming gets new choices of fabrics and patterns. The existing technologies also get new updates, like the Twindoor tail gate – there are now separate buttons to open the bootlid or the entire trunk. The Park Assist now helps with parallel parking and reverse parking in car parks.
Prices for the Hatch and Estate versions are not yet released but with all the additions, expect a little price increase from the current £18,030 starting price.
