All-New 2024 Skoda Superb Revealed! Bigger, Bolder, and More Efficient
November 3, 2023
The unveiling of the fourth-generation Skoda Superb has introduced a vehicle that marries increased dimensions with a refined design, while offering a suite of powertrain options, notably excluding an all-electric variant.
Skoda's latest Superb iteration adopts the "Modern Solid" design language, enhancing its visual appeal with a more prominent badge placement on the redesigned grille. The vehicle's lighting is bolstered by advanced Matrix LED technology, which provides a 40% boost in brightness.
Aerodynamic improvements are evident in the Superb's design, with a shallower windshield and a more streamlined roofline, complemented by practical rain deflectors. These modifications aid in the car's overall efficiency.
Design coherence is maintained with dark chrome detailing on the grille, bumper, and windows, alongside more pronounced body creases.
The rear boasts slimmer lights with the brand's characteristic C-shaped design and the option for dynamic scrolling indicators, with a selection of alloy wheels from 17 to 19 inches as standard.
The new Superb models have grown marginally in size, enhancing cabin and cargo space—the hatch offers 645 liters, and the Estate 690 liters, which can be extended to 1,920 liters with the rear seats folded.
Inside, the Superb features a large touchscreen interface, up to 13 inches in higher-end models, and a 10-inch Virtual Cockpit for drivers. Skoda cleverly combines digital with traditional by including three Smart Dials for various controls.
Skoda's dedication to functionality and safety shines with 28 innovative "Simply Clever" features, including a cooling system for the wireless charging pad, and a suite of nine driver assistance technologies.
The interior also emphasizes sustainability, with eco-friendly materials and optional ergonomic seats with massage functions, alongside customizable design packages.
The engine selection defies the industry's electric trend, offering a 1.5-liter mild-hybrid petrol engine, two 2.0-liter petrol engines, and two diesel variants, all equipped with DSG automatic transmissions.
The range-topping Superb iV plug-in hybrid pairs a 1.5 petrol engine with an electric motor for a 201bhp combined output and a significant electric-only range, thanks to its 25.7kWh battery.
The expected pricing for the new Superb will be announced later, though some UK outlets are expecting a 10% increase in price over current Superb's. For Australia, that would mean a starting price of ~$77,000 AUD versus the current Sportline trim sold in Australia for $69,990 AUD driveaway.
The Estate model will open for orders in January, with the Estate iV and hatch to follow, and initial deliveries slated for mid-year.
