Powertrains: Six engine variants, premiere of mild hybrid technology
and improved plug-in hybrid drive

› Second-generation PHEV offers an all-electric WLTP range of more than 100 kilometres in the Superb Combi estate
› Entry-level 1.5 TSI with mild-hybrid technology, top version of the 2.0 TSI with all-wheel drive
› Two 2.0 TDI diesels with 110 kW (150 hp) and 142 kW (193 hp) complete the engine line-up
› DCC Plus covers an even wider range from comfortable to sporty

Mladá Boleslav, 2 November 2023 – Škoda Auto offers six versatile, modern and highly efficient powertrains for the all-new Superb with outputs ranging from 110 kW (150 hp) to 195 kW (265 hp). They include a 1.5 TSI petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology – a first for Škoda’s ICE flagship model – as well as the latest-generation plug-in hybrid drive. The latter delivers a system output of 150 kW (204 hp) and enables an all-electric range of more than 100 kilometres on the WLTP cycle, courtesy of a larger high-voltage battery. Completing the powertrain line-up are two 2.0 TSI petrol engines and two 2.0 TDI diesels, with all-wheel drive included as standard for the top versions. All Superb variants come with DSG. The optional new DCC Plus generation of Dynamic Chassis Control offers faster responses and a wider range of suspension settings from luxurious comfort to pronounced dynamic ability.

"The all-new Superb will be more efficient than ever before in the history of the model range, thanks to a wide range of state-of-the-art powertrains. The new-generation plug-in hybrid drive delivers an all-electric range of over 100 kilometres. In addition, the Superb is now available with mild-hybrid technology for the first time. On top of that, the new DCC Plus ensures ideal driving characteristics and a comfortable ride under any circumstances. At the same time it provides excellent dynamics and sporty handling whenever the customer wants it."

Plug-in hybrid drive with new 1.5 TSI and larger high-voltage battery

The new-generation plug-in hybrid drive, based on a 110 kW (150 hp) 1.5 TSI from the latest EA211 evo2 engine series, is exclusively available for the Superb Combi estate and delivers a system output of 150 kW (204 hp). Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed DSG. With a gross capacity of 25.7 kWh, the new high-voltage battery is about twice the size of its predecessor and enables an all-electric range of more than 100 kilometres on the WLTP cycle. With a maximum charging rate of 11 kW at domestic wallboxes and AC charging points, the battery can be replenished from zero to 100 percent in 2:30 hours. Charging at public DC fast charging stations is even quicker. Thanks to a maximum charging rate of 50 kW, it takes just 25 minutes to charge the battery from 10 to 80 percent. Energy is also recovered during braking. The infotainment system for the Superb Combi iV comes with special features to precisely locate charging stations; it will also support Plug & Charge in the future.

Entry-level engine with mild-hybrid technology, DSG as standard for all powertrains

The new entry-level engine for the Superb is a 110 kW (150 hp) 1.5 TSI petrol engine, also from the latest EA211 evo2 engine series, with mild-hybrid technology. It marks the first use of a 48-volt belt-driven starter-generator and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery in the Škoda Superb. Energy recovered during braking can support the combustion engine with an electric power boost or allow the Superb to coast with the engine completely switched off. The fourth-generation Superb is available with two further petrol engines and two diesels. Like the 1.5 TSI, they are all mated to a 7-speed DSG. The two 2.0 TSI units deliver 150 kW (204 hp) and, in the top-of-the-range model, 195 kW (265 hp). The two 2.0 TDI diesels produce 110 kW (150 hp) and 142 kW (193 hp). The latter and the top petrol engine come with all-wheel drive as standard, and all engines meet the Euro 6d emissions standard.

Superb synthesis of comfort and sportiness with DCC Plus

The all-new Superb is optionally available with the new DCC Plus, which comes as standard in the Superb L&K. This new version uses two independently controlled valves to separate the suspension’s rebound and compression stages. Previously, both functions were controlled by a single valve. The new generation enables faster damping adjustment and a wider range of damping characteristics. Drivers and passengers will notice the difference in the form of faster responses and enhanced driving dynamics or increased ride comfort, as desired. With the appropriate DCC Plus setting, the car’s body remains more composed and less susceptible to vibration and vertical movement, especially when driving over bad road surfaces, cobblestones and manhole covers.
