These are the first official images with the facelifted Skoda Superb ahead of the car’s public debut set for April 19 before the 2013 Auto Shanghai opens its doors. Minor styling changes can be spotted in the A pillars, hood, front grille, front and rear bumpers, fog lights and the company’s new logo also found on the Rapid and Octavia. It will be sold with new variants of 16- to 18-inch wheels, two fresh exterior metallic paints called Meteor Gray and Moon White, along with bi-xenon headlights which feature LED daytime running lights which are now mandatory in Europe for all new cars. The back has received a new trunk lid and larger LED taillights.
Moving on the inside there are new upholsteries and trims to choose from, nine different three- and four-spoke steering wheels, and a more elegant brown & beige finish for the premium Laurin & Klement flagship variant of the Superb.
Those who are interested in fuel economy might want to opt for the GreenLine variant as it is capable of returning 56 mpg US (67.2 mpg UK or 4.2 liters / 100 km), with CO2 emissions of just 109 g/km. There are other power units to choose from, such as the 2.0-liter TDI producing 140 hp (103 kW) and 170 hp (125 kW).
The sedan has a 595-liter cargo capacity which can be boosted to 1700 liters once the rear seats are folded while the estate variant has 633 liters to offer or 1865 liters once the seats are folded.
