2016 Skoda Superb launched in India from Rs. 22.68 lakhs
Skoda has gone out and launched the new generation Superb in India with prices starting at Rs. 22.68 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). The vehicle has finally made its debut post all its spy shots. Taking design inspiration from the VisionC concept, the new Superb takes the competition in the premium sedan segment to a whole new level.
Measuring 4861mm in length, 1864mm in width, 1468mm in height and having a ground clearance of 164mm, the sedan has an 80mm longer wheelbase as compared to its predecessor. This has resulted in making 157mm more legroom and 39mm more elbow room available for the rear passengers. Boot space stands at a massive 625 litres.
Design wise, the new Superb now looks more elegant and premium, much like the current gen Octavia. The front profile is characterised by a bold grille with chrome vertical slats, redesigned front bumper with a large air dam that neatly integrates with the fog lamps, sleek headlights that feature a projector setup and LED daytime running lights. Side view is fairly simple with new 10-spoke alloy wheels. Rear end features nice looking two-piece LED taillights.
Moving on to the main part which is the interiors. The cabin features a dual tone black and beige colour scheme with a host of features including the likes of a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay connectivity, rear parking sensors and camera, 8 airbags, 3-zone climate control, 12-way adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, ventilated front seats and panoramic sunroof.
