2016 Skoda Superb spotted in India, will launch next year – Spied


Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Will launch in India by early next year.

Skoda India will be launching the 2016 Skoda Superb early next year and the car has been caught testing outside Pune by Overdrive reader Rohil Hinduja.

Spotted in the Laurin & Klement (L&K) trim, the new Superb is expected to be assembled for India at the Aurangabad plant in 2016.

The test mule spotted is the top-end Laurin & Klement (L&K) trim. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the 2016 Skoda Superb is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and is 80 mm longer and 85 kg lighter than the outgoing model. It has 625 liters of boot space which can be increased to 1,760 liters with the rear seats folded.

The exterior is inspired by the VisionC Concept and gets a more chiseled design. The headlamps get LED DRLs with bi-xenon units offered as options. The L&K trim is loaded with extra features such as Smartlink infotainment system with iPad, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility; wireless charging; heated seats with electric adjust for front seat, triple-zone climate control, and CANTON premium audio system.
