Unveiling this month, followed by a public premiere next month.
Skoda has released the first images of the new 2016 Superb’s interior. The luxury sedan, as announced earlier, will be unveiled this month before a public reveal at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Skoda says that its aim was to create an interior with a more “modern, elegant and sophisticated look” compared to the outgoing model. The VW-owned car maker says that improvements have been made to the interior dimensions, but hasn’t revealed the specifics. The new Superb will feature a “new level of comfort, new technical solutions and high-quality, precise workmanship”, says Skoda.
The image released is that of the Laurin & Klement variant, a higher trimmed, fully specced model in the lineup. Features such as a DSG gearbox, dual-zone climate control, touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, cruise control, voice command, auto-parking assist and perforated and heated leather seats are seen on the car.
As reported earlier, the new Superb will be powered by four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, matched to manual and DSG gearboxes. Based on the new MQB platform as the new VW Passat, the two cars share over 50 percent of components.
Competitors: Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, VW Passat, Peugeot 508, Hyundai Sonata
