The facelifted Skoda Superb gets reworked exterior and interior styling, new alloy wheels and a couple of new features


Skoda Superb facelift

 

 

The second generation of the post World War II era Superb from Skoda has been around in India since 2009. And in that time here it has become widely acknowledged for being a well made, luxurious and extremely spacious car for its price.

 

Skoda has now given the Superb a facelift to freshen up its appeal while all its competitors have jumped to their next generations, apart from the Nissan Teana. 

 

The basic architecture of the facelifted Skoda Superb remains the same with alterations to the front limited to the grille, headlamps, bumper and fog lamps. The Superb remains identical from the side apart from the new alloy wheels. At the back, the most prominent change is the relocation of the licence plate from the bumper to the boot lid, which retains the chrome strip on its lip. The attractive new tail lights are also fairly prominent. Skoda has fitted a new rear bumper with reflectors and the tail pipes are now located on the left side of the car. 

 

After the unveiling of the new Octavia in December 2012, it looks like Skoda is trying to make its uniquely shaped front grille with the centre bonnet groove a family trend.

Interior changes to the facelifted Skoda Superb include a new four-spoke steering wheel, gear lever and interior colour scheme that retains the lower beige colour of the door pads, dashboard and centre console but adds a brown colour finish on top of the dashboard, door pads and the steering wheel. 

 

Two new features worth mentioning about the face-lifted Skoda Superb include an automatic park assist system and the front passenger seat can now be moved forward electrically via a button on the backrest, to make more legroom at the back.
