Spied – Skoda Superb facelift caught on tape
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The current generation Skoda Superb has been on sale in India for over three years and more than that in the rest of the world. So its only logical that Skoda plans for a mid-life refresh for its flagship luxury sedan. Add to that the new logo the Czech auto maker announced for themselves and the reason to introduce the Superb facelift only increases.

We brought you the spyshots of Superb facelift’s bumper only a couple of days ago and already the facelifted Superb has been caught on video by Auto.idnes.cz’s reader Mr. Jan Havranek.
From the front, it’s apparent that the change will be in the form of a new bumper supporting a new foglamp design and an altered grille. The grille will no longer be hosting the Skoda logo, instead the logo has been moved up to the hood of the car. The fog lamps and headlamps will feature an altered design as well with the addition of daytime running LED lights, inline with the Mission-D concept. The Superb now looks more like its updated family – The new Octavia and the Rapid.
From the rear, the changes are once again concentrated towards the bumper and the tail-lights. The rear-lights will house a set of LED’s but the shape of the tail lamp cluster is unaltered.
While the interior is expected to remain largely unchanged, a new steering wheel and a smaller gear shift knob could be included in the Superb facelift. The report goes further to say that a radar adaptive cruise control could be on offer as well.
The refreshed Superb is scheduled to arrive in June 2013. We also know that Skoda might want to launch the refreshed Superb in India immediately given that the Fabia with the new Skoda logo has been caught on test in India.
Stay tuned to Indian Autos Blog as we get you more updates of the refreshed Superb.
