Wireless charging for mobile phones and MirrorLink to be the two big additions.
Official pictures of the camouflaged next generation 2016 Skoda Superb were recently released by the Czech manufacturer to keep us journalists, enthusiasts, and prospective buyers excited about the upcoming car. It is based on Volkswagen's MQB platform and will feature a design language that will evolve from this year's Geneva Motor Show exhibit, the Vision C concept.
Coming back to the point of interest at the moment, which is the car's interior. A report by Auto Forum says that the 2016 Skoda Superb's cabin is more spacious now thanks to a slight increase in the overall length and width of the car. Boot capacity is increased to 625 litres with the seats up, and 1,760 litres with them folded down.
Complementing the added space inside will be the list of features. For now, according to the report, it's clear that the vehicle gets better quality materials than before. There's a larger display panel, which will work on Mirrorlink technology, hence enabling occupants to stream certain apps to the screen from their phone.
Much like the upcoming Mercedes Benz E Class, the next generation Superb is also expected to get a wireless charging solution for mobile phones. Driver aids will include lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control, while adaptive dampers will also be made available on the car.
The vehicle will debut next year in February in Prague, while a market launch is set to happen in mid-2015. An Indian arrival within a year of its European launch looks likely.
