› Innovative lighting technology used for the first time in a ŠKODA production model
› New assistance systems with expanded range of functions make their debut
› New design for the radiator grille and front bumper as well as new materials in the interior
Mladá Boleslav/Bratislava, 23 May 2019 – ŠKODA has systematically refined the SUPERB’s dynamic and elegant design. The carmaker has also upgraded its top model with new technologies and an even more exquisite interior. The full LED Matrix headlights and several new assistance systems are making their debut in a production model from the Czech brand. With a generous amount of interior space and a boot capacity of 625 l in the hatchback and 660 l in the estate, the SUPERB continues to set benchmarks in the segment.
One technological highlight of the updated ŠKODA SUPERB is its full LED Matrix headlights, which are making their debut in a ŠKODA production model. This innovative system generates a light beam consisting of several segments, which it controls individually. This prevents other road users from being dazzled, despite the high beam being on at all times. The intelligent technology uses the camera on the windscreen to detect oncoming traffic as well as people and objects reflecting the light, and a control unit to immediately turn off individual segments of the light beam.
The adaptive, crystalline-effect full LED Matrix headlights bear ‘ŠKODA Crystal Lighting’ lettering in their housings and offer different lighting modes for different driving situations and weather conditions. These consist of an LED module for the dipped and high beam, three further LED high beam segments, a static LED cornering light, a narrow LED strip providing the indicators, daytime running and position lights, as well as needle-like LED structures used as part of the animated Coming/Leaving Home function. The redesigned fog lights with cornering function also use the four LED light sources. The full LED tail lights come with dynamic rear indicators that illuminate in an outward sweeping motion, not only making the signal even easier to see and more noticeable, but also creating additional dynamics.
Another feature of the innovative full LED Matrix system is the animated Coming/Leaving Home function, which automatically turns parts of the headlights and tail lights on and off when getting into or out of the car.
