Skoda has once again teased the fourth-gen Superb for the international market. The carmaker will commemorate the 90th anniversary of the first Skoda Superb, manufactured between 1934 and 1949, by making the global debut of its fourth-generation version in late 2023. In the teaser, the new model was all-covered and had all previous Superb variants alongside. Right now, there are not many details on the upcoming Skoda Superb sedan. Market reports, however, indicate that the next-generation model will feature evolutionary aesthetics. It will reportedly not have the current solid design language. As far as the improvements go, the new Superb could feature a brand-new exterior, cutting-edge features, better technology, and a renovated cabin. Here are more details on the upcoming sedan, which is likely to mark its global presence in the autumn of 2023.
New Skoda Superb: What's New?
Earlier, Skoda didn't make the Superb BS6 Phase 2 compliant, leading to its discontinuation in India. The 2022 discontinued model had a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, capable of delivering 187.4bhp and 320Nm. For transmission, it used a seven-speed DCT. Now, the fourth-generation flagship Superb will be introduced in our market after undergoing homologation to meet BS6.2 norms. According to industry reports, it will feature an improved version of the MQB platform. According to official statements from Skoda, the upcoming version will be launched with technological upgrades, in addition to fuel-efficient petrol, diesel, mild-hybrid, and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Also, Slovakia's Bratislava will be the location of the Skoda Superb's production.
According to the previous teasers, the upcoming sedan is expected to have conventional proportions but sharper surfacing, demonstrated by the character lines on the profile that leads to the distinct shoulders. Except for the headlights, not much can be seen in the teasers. However, it appears to have an L-shaped LED headlight.
Is Next-gen Skoda Kodiaq also on the cards for India?
The Czech automobile manufacturer will not only launch the fourth-generation Skoda Superb sedan in our market but also the new Kodiaq SUV. Mechanically, the two models from the Skoda's stable, are likely to feature petrol, diesel, as well as, plug-in and mild hybrid engines. Design-wise not much is known about the second-generation SUV, but according to teasers, it will likely have two LED headlight signatures, one of which is L-shaped and the other is smaller. Further, the SUV's taillights will feature C-shaped LEDs at the back. More details on both the upcoming sedan and the SUV are more likely to emerge closer to the launch.
