Upgraded ŠKODA SUPERB: full LED Matrix headlights provide a new highlight

› Flagship offers innovative light technology for increased comfort and safety
› SUPERB is the first ŠKODA to be powered by a new EVO-generation diesel engine
› SUPERB sets benchmarks in terms of design, comfort, safety and interior space

Mladá Boleslav / Frankfurt, 9 September 2019 – Four years after the launch of the third generation, ŠKODA has systematically modernised its flagship, the SUPERB. Full LED Matrix headlights are the highlight of the updated model; the first 2.0 TDI from the new EVO generation of engines is also celebrating its debut. The ŠKODA SUPERB features state of the art assistance systems and its exceptional amount of interior space remains unique.

The revised SUPERB is the first ŠKODA production model to feature innovative full LED Matrix headlights, which come as standard for the SUPERB SPORTLINE and the elegant, range-topping L&K variants. The technology uses a light beam consisting of several individual segments, which are regulated by the system, to prevent other road users from being dazzled despite the high beam being on at all times. When oncoming traffic or people and objects reflecting the light are detected, individual segments of the light beam are immediately turned off. To improve safety and comfort even further, there are also different light modes that cater for different traffic situations and weather conditions. An animated Coming/Leaving Home function and the brand’s typical, crystalline effects in the headlights provide visual highlights. The full LED tail lights also include dynamic indicators for the first time.

More advanced assistance systems provide even greater safety

ŠKODA has equipped the SUPERB with two enhanced assistance systems making their debut, whilst also offering new, full LED Matrix headlights. The latest version of Predictive Cruise Control uses images from the camera on the windscreen and data from the navigation system to detect speed restrictions as well as bends, and automatically adjusts the speed in anticipation. Emergency Assist for multi-lane roads (available from mid-2020) is also new. When driving on multi-lane roads, if the driver becomes unable to maintain control of the car, due to health problems for example, the system steers the vehicle to the roadside, where it brings the car to a stop. Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian Protection comes as standard for the ŠKODA SUPERB. Side Assist – which detects vehicles approaching from behind or that are in the car’s blind spot now up to 70 m away – and Park Assist are both optional.

First diesel from the EVO generation

The completely new 2.0 TDI outputting 110 kW (150 PS) is ŠKODA’s first diesel from the new EVO generation of engines and is lighter, particularly efficient and clean. In total there are seven drive systems and ten engine/drive combinations to choose from. However, the entry-level 1.6 TDI producing 88 kW (120 PS) is not available for the SUPERB SPORTLINE and L&K. The SUPERB’s standard chassis is replaced by a 15-mm-lower sports chassis as standard in the SPORTLINE. Dynamic Chassis Control lowers the L&K variant by 10 mm. The SCOUT comes with a Rough-Road package featuring underbody protection for the engine and undercarriage, and a ground clearance that has been raised by 15 mm.

Larger ŠKODA grille and new alloys

ŠKODA has meticulously modified the exterior design of the SUPERB. The larger ŠKODA grille now bears double slats and protrudes a little further down into the modernised front apron. In the SPORTLINE, the grille’s frame and a decorative trim at the back both come in gloss black, creating a dynamic appearance. In other variants, a chrome trim connects the full LED tail lights. The L&K model sports further new chrome details on the Air Curtains, side sills and rear bumper, as well as an L&K badge on the front wings. The redesigned fog lights also use four LED modules. As part of the optional ambient lighting, LED spotlights project ‘ŠKODA’ onto the ground when the front doors are opened.

The SUPERB is available with a choice of eight new 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels. The elegant SUPERB L&K rolls out of the factory on aerodynamically optimised 18-inch Propus Aero alloys; the SPORTLINE comes with 18-inch Zenith alloy wheels as standard. Two new metallic finishes, Crystal Black and Race Blue, have been added to the range of colours. As part of the update, the ŠKODA SUPERB has grown in length by 8 mm to 4,869 mm, and the ŠKODA SUPERB COMBI by 6 mm to 4,862 mm. At 625 l, and 660 l in the SUPERB COMBI, the boot capacity remains the largest in the segment.

Refined materials in a generous interior

The SUPERB’s typically spacious interior appears even more sophisticated thanks to new chrome details on the dashboard, door handles as well as levers, and atmospheric ambient lighting. The Ambition and Style trim levels boast new seat covers; coloured decorative stitching adorns the Alcantara® and leather seats as well as the armrests in the doors. The particularly stylish L&K variant can be identified by the decorative ‘Laurin & Klement’ lettering found on the leather seatbacks as well as on the Piano Black or beige brush-finished decorative trim located on the passenger side of the dashboard. For the first time, the L&K version comes with the option of an exquisite Alcantara® roof lining in black or beige including lined roof pillars and sun visors. The ventilated, electrically adjustable front seats with a memory function provide yet another highlight. The driver’s seat is available with an optional massage function, and the Canton Sound System that comes as standard treats occupants of the vehicle to perfect acoustics.

Black interior for the SUPERB SPORTLINE

To match its sporty appearance, the interior of the SUPERB SPORTLINE is predominantly clad in black. Alcantara®/leather sport seats protect the driver and front passenger with integrated headrests and, thanks to the new option of extending the seat surface, provide even more support and comfort. The black three-spoke steering wheel features contrasting stitching and is particularly easy to grip thanks to its leather finish. The decorative trims have a black carbon-fibre look.

KESSY GO start button as standard

As part of the upgrade, the KESSY GO start button was added to the SUPERB’s standard equipment. As an option, or as standard for the SUPERB L&K, SPORTLINE and SCOUT, the KESSY keyless entry system now unlocks all of the car’s four doors. In addition, a larger Phone Box, a space organiser beneath the false boot floor and an optional flexible organiser on the boot floor are also available. The individually customisable, 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit is also optional; the screen for the SUPERB’s infotainment system measures up to 9.2 inches. All of the available infotainment systems come with SmartLink technology as standard.
