Škoda is set to unveil its fourth-generation Superb in November 2023 – 90 years after the launch of the historic first model. Like its predecessors, the new Superb combines a striking design concept with advanced technology. Safer and more spacious than ever before, the new model is ready to add another chapter to the Superb’s longstanding tradition at Škoda. Delivering outputs from 150 hp (110 kW) to 265 hp (195 kW), the Superb will be available with a choice of three petrol engines, two diesels, a plug-in hybrid with an even greater electric range of over 62 miles (100 kilometres), and – for the first time – a mild hybrid. Three brand new features further expand the list of distinctive Simply Clever ideas, taking their number up to 28.
About to enter its fourth modern generation, the new Superb will continue to impress with an emotive design that has seen further refinements, and with state-of-the-art technology. This car is now even more spacious while also being safer than ever, courtesy of ten airbags, numerous assistance systems and a total of 28 Simply Clever features. Moreover, the Superb combines excellent fuel economy with great performance. Three modern and highly efficient petrol engines, two state-of-the-art diesels and a new plug-in hybrid with an increased electric range of more than 62 miles (100 kilometres) cover an output spectrum from 150 hp (110 kW) to 265 hp (195 kW). For the first time, a mild-hybrid powertrain will be available, and all models are fitted with an automatic DSG transmission as standard. One of the key interior modifications is the gearshift lever mounted on the steering column. This frees up space on the centre console, providing the driver with even more comfort and additional storage space.
Up to 28 Simply Clever details increase driver and passenger comfort in the new-generation Superb. Some of them are completely new to Škoda overall: a unique electrically controlled roller blind acting as a luggage compartment cover in the Superb estate, a centre armrest for the rear seats with integrated tablet holder and a double storage pocket on the back of each front seat to hold documents or magazines as well as a smartphone. A first for the Superb is the integrated funnel in the windscreen washer reservoir cap. Incidentally, Škoda presented the first of what has become a very wide range of Simply Clever details in 2001, when it introduced the initial modern-day generation of the Superb. At the time, these included numerous cup holders in the rear armrests, on the centre armrest and inside the glove compartment, as well as the premiere of a 12-volt socket for the rear-seat passengers. The iconic umbrella in the driver’s door and the smart luggage hooks in the boot can still be found in Škoda cars today.
