The new ŠKODA Superb: a new era begins in Australia. ŠKODA Australia is pleased to introduce the third-generation Superb Sedan and Wagon to its award-winning line-up, with a range of highperformance petrol engines and a fuel efficient diesel engine.

The name alone is a commitment: a ŠKODA Superb has to be something special.

The ŠKODA Superb is driving the brand forward with its new, modern and emotionally-rich design, The Superb’s above-average spaciousness has once again been improved and it benefits technically from Volkswagen Group’s innovative MQB technology. Generous dimensions, innovative assistance systems for safety, environment and comfort, powerful engines and ‘Simply Clever’ details, typical of ŠKODA, move the brand’s flagship to the upper end of the large car segment. In short, the new Superb is the highlight of ŠKODA’s largest-ever model campaign.

The ‘Superb’ name has to be earned by a ŠKODA. Never before have such enormous demands been placed on the design of a ŠKODA, and never before has so much new technology been incorporated into the design of a new model. Never before have there been so many ‘Simply Clever’ concepts and never before have the ŠKODA engineers managed to deliver so much space for the driver, passengers and their luggage. A plethora of new Driver Assist systems from higher vehicle classes is available for greater safety and comfort. The third-generation Superb is more powerful than ever and yet more economical thanks to a new generation of petrol and diesel engines.

Innovation and connectivity plays a large part in the philosophy of the new ŠKODA Superb, and both Sedan and Wagon variants feature a new-generationinfotainment system which automatically connects to a smartphone via SmartLink.

SmartLink includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which provide easy access to many apps from your personal smartphone on the car’s display.

A dynamic and elegant design revolution

The ŠKODA Superb’s new design demonstrates the emotional power of the brand.

ŠKODA cars have always embodied a high degree of functionality, reliability and excellent value for money. With the new Superb, ŠKODA is now underlining these qualities with a modern, expressive and emotionally-rich design. The new ŠKODA design language demonstrates assurance, dynamic elegance, balanced proportions and a striking appeal.

With this, the new ŠKODA Superb brings the exciting design language of the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ show car into production.

Upgrade – comfort and space in a new dimension

The generous amount of space and the high level of comfort have been some of the ŠKODA Superb’s specific strengths from the very beginning. The third-generation model sets new standards in this respect.

Compared to the already generous space of the previous model, the spaciousness of the new Superb has again increased. The use of MQB has especially contributed to this expansion, enabling a longer wheelbase and wider track thus allowing the interior to be used more effectively.

The result is significantly more space in the front and rear. The driver and front passenger can enjoy 39mm more elbow room and more headroom. The space in the rear is almost ‘princely’.

Rear legroom has expanded to 157mm and headroom is now 980mm. Meanwhile, elbow room in the rear has increased by 69mm. The boot capacity is also comfortably roomy: at 625 litres for the sedan and 660 litres for the wagon, it is 60 litres bigger than in the second-generation Superb.

With an array of completely new comfort solutions, the new ŠKODA flagship fulfils the highest demands. The new ŠKODA Superb is the brand’s first model to offer Adaptive Chassis Control including Driving Mode Selection. An entirely new top-tier three-zone air conditioning system ensures an optimal temperature and the best air quality on board. The new ŠKODA Superb is available with an optional electric panoramic sunroof for more comfort and a feel-good factor in the interior.

For the colder times of the year, there are heated seats, standard in the front and included in the optional Comfort Pack for the rear. The Comfort Pack also includes front ventilated seats with a cooling function for thermal regulation. The rain/light sensor automatically switches the windscreen wipers on and off and automatically switches between daytime running light and dipped beam depending on light conditions.

Driving in and out of parking spaces will be more convenient than ever before in the new ŠKODA Superb. The model has the newest generation of Automatic Parking Assist (in the optional Tech Pack) for automatic parking. Furthermore, the ŠKODA flagship has Rear View Camera as standard for the first time. The classic handbrake has also been replaced with a standard electric parking brake in the new Superb.

Highest efficiency

The new ŠKODA Superb has modern, direct-injection turbocharged engines based on MQB technology (two TSI petrol, one TDI common-rail diesel). All powertrains come with stop-start technology and brake energy recuperation as standard. The petrol engines produce 162kW and 206kW. The power output of the diesel engine is 140kW.

All powertrains are available with dual-clutch transmissions, with the 162TSI and 140TDI in front wheel drive configuration, while the 206TSI comes standard with the latest electronically-controlled multi-plate clutch coupling 4-wheel drive system.

Safety without compromises

The new ŠKODA Superb wows with a level of safety that has not previously been seen as standard for vehicles in this segment. The new Superb is fitted as standard with Electronic Stability Control including Multi-Collision Brake, as well as the following safety features fitted as standard: Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Rear View Camera, Fatigue Detection, Passenger Protect Assist, electronic Tyre Pressure Monitoring, nine airbags, five three-point automatic seat belts with fastening alerts, Bi-Xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, as well as safety headrests.
