The front end has been completely redesigned up to the A-pillars. The radiator grille, vehicle logo, front headlights and fog lights, bumper, front fender, and bonnet are new. The new ŠKODA logo is now placed prominently in the centre of the bonnet, which is slightly sloped downward. The completely redesigned front headlights convey the particularly expressive character of the new Superb ‘face’. The Superb now has bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights and LED turning signals for the first time. The rear of the vehicle has also been completely redesigned. The new rear end is clear, clean and precise. The contour of the lights has been reinterpreted; the C-shape of the rear taillights shines even more brightly than before.
For the first time in the ŠKODA Superb, three light strips make up the C-shaped rear lights that are characteristic of the brand, coming standard as LEDs. Two new cubist triangles below the boot lid are additional unmistakable elements of the new ŠKODA design.
Three metallic paint shades in Metal grey, Magnetic Brown and Brilliant Silver are also new choices for the Superb’s exterior and the Superb will now be available in eight colors. The Superb still features its clever Twindoor system. Thanks to this unique, patented solution, the 5th door can be opened in two different ways. Users can either just open the boot lid or the entire rear boot including the rear window. Operation has also become much easier, with a button for each door position in the fundamentally revised Superb. The interior of the ŠKODA Superb is also refreshed with a new generation steering wheel. The Superb’s luggage compartment offers a basic volume of 565 litres which is best-in-class and the same can be extended to 1,700 by folding the rear seats. Other practical solutions include an umbrella compartment in the left rear door, and numerous storage options.
