Offered in both, sedan and estate versions.
The Skoda Superb SportLine is being showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Featuring a sporty appearance, the Superb SportLine is offered as a more dynamic alternative in the latest Skoda Superb lineup.
The 2016 Superb SportLine benefits from a wide range of sporty elements, as an upgrade to the base model’s exterior, interior and the equipment list. It comes with black coloured alloy wheels of 18- and 19-inch size choices, dark-tinted rear windows and rear windshield (sunset), and a lowered ride height (chassis) by 15 mm.
The interior of the SportLine variants comes with a three-spoke sports steering wheel, leather wrapped gear knob, exclusive performance-inspiring upholstery for the seats, aluminium foot pedals and carbon fibre accents.
No mechanical change has been made to the Skoda Superb SportLine compared to the model it is based on. It is offered with all of the engines currently offered in the Superb notchback, except for the entry-level petrol and diesel options. The regular Superb is available with five petrol and three diesel engines, all of which are Euro 6 compliant and come with start/stop system and regenerative braking. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed DCT. The unit showcased at the show is a 2.0 TDI 190 PS DSG variant.
