With the exception of the prestigious six-cylinder petrol engine, all of the powertrains were turbocharged, while the role of automatic transmission was played by the dual-clutch DSG system. Over time, the range on offer expanded to include the estate, the economical GreenLine, the top-of-the-range LAURIN & KLEMENT, and the Outdoor design package (for estates).
The second generation’s facelift in 2013 was a lot bolder than that of the first generation. This time, the SUPERB took on more modern lines in keeping with ŠKODA’s new design language (including a revamped fascia and rear section and a new logo). Ita lso offered a raft of attractive technical, safety and comfort features. Innovations included adaptive bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, Driver Activity Assistant (to detect driver fatigue) and Automatic Parking Assistant version 2.0. The TwinDoor system was also improved, with the “liftback” and “sedan” each now having their own button.
