Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director, ŠKODA AUTO India said, “Since its introduction, the ŠKODA SUPERB has been setting benchmarks in its segment, and the one above. With its compelling combination of elegant design, luxurious interiors, plentiful space, and distinctive presence, the saloon has been a favourite for many ‘value luxury’ seekers in India. The refreshed ŠKODA SUPERB hosts some contemporary updates that further elevates its appeal and shall be appreciated by all.”
The refreshed ŠKODA SUPERB comes with many design and technological enhancements including sleek new headlights that merge with the radiator grille and come equipped with LED day time running lights, with illuminated LED eyelashes and ‘coming / leaving home’ function, as well as LED turn indicators, as standard.
The refreshed ŠKODA SUPERB also comes with adaptive front-lighting system for optimum illumination of the road and its surroundings. The variable geometry enables the new headlamp units to respond to any change in speed, light, and weather conditions. The available modes include city, inter-city, motorway, and rain. The AFS system dons headlamp swivelling and cornering functions, in addition to dynamic headlamp inclination control.
The refreshed ŠKODA SUPERB sports the new 20.32 cm floating capacitive touch display, with proximity sensor, which features a glass design and an updated user interface. It is a part of the new generation Amundsen Infotainment System, with inbuilt navigation, developed by the Czech automotive manufacturer.
The refreshed Superb comes with SmartLink™ technology – ŠKODA connectivity bundle supporting MirrorLink™, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, that mirrors a smartphone for seamless connectivity and undistracted drive. It also supports voice command control, new ‘Type C’ USB ports, and Bluetooth® GSM telephony and audio streaming options. By placing a smartphone, face up, over the wireless charging pad, the mobile device automatically connects and starts receiving power – now that’s ‘Simply Clever’.

The Carbon décor, new three spoke flat bottom SuperSport multifunction steering wheel with paddle shift and SportLine inscription, and black Alcantara® Sports Seats with integrated headrests add to the active theme inside the refreshed ŠKODA SUPERB SportLine.
