Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will not be showcased at Auto Expo 2016.

Skoda India has dropped the first official teaser of the India-spec 2016 Skoda Superb on its official website, citing that a launch date is coming close, which is reported as Q1 of 2016. Note that Skoda will not participate in the Auto Expo, ruling out an unveil at the exhibition.

The launch of the new Skoda Superb is reported to take place during Q1 of 2016.

Spyshots of the model have revealed that a top-end L&K edition will be available, which is packed with a plethora of equipments. Few of standard features are heated seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive dampers with 3 driving modes, power-adjustable front seat with memory and lumbar support, triple-zone climate control, 8-inch Smartlink infotainment system, and a CANTON audio system.

The exterior of the new Superb is influenced by the company’s latest design language first seen in the Skoda Octavia, which is characterized by angular and strong lines. Based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, the Skoda Superb shares 50% of its internals with the 2015 VW Passat (B8). It is 75 kg lighter than its predecessor, despite growing 80 mm in wheelbase, 47 mm in width and 28 mm in overall length.

The third-generation Superb is expected to offer the same powertrain options as the outgoing model, albeit slightly revised for better fuel mileage or performance. The lineup could include a 1.8-litre TSI petrol engine with 180 PS and 250 Nm, as well as a new 2.0-litre TDI motor, capable of 190 PS and 400 Nm of torque. These will be paired to a DSG transmission and turn the front wheels.
