The new ŠKODA Superb: Concert Hall on Wheels

› ŠKODA’s new flagship available with specially developed CANTON sound
system
› Top-of-the-range Laurin & Klement; option for ‘Ambition’ and ‘Style’
equipment
› Twelve-speaker surround sound, including subwoofer in the boot
› ŠKODA in partnership with German loudspeaker-manufacturer since 2013

Mladá Boleslav, 10 August 2015 – Music to your ears: The new ŠKODA Superb
has been transformed into a concert hall on wheels with the exclusively
developed CANTON sound system. Twelve speakers and an additional amplifier
mounted under the driver’s seat provide the perfect sound experience for the
brand’s new flagship.

The sound system developed by loudspeaker-manufacturer CANTON ensures a unique
audio experience in the new ŠKODA Superb. The system offers an impressive power
output of 610 watts – the best among any of ŠKODA’s direct competitors.

In partnership since 2013, ŠKODA is so far the only vehicle manufacturer to have worked
with the German sound specialists at CANTON to provide the sound quality of home
entertainment systems in cars. The first result of the exclusive partnership was the
multiple award-winning high-end system in the current ŠKODA Octavia.

A total of twelve individual loudspeakers unite in the new ŠKODA Superb for completely
balanced sound. Ten are located in the doors (high, mid-high and woofers in the front
doors, high and mid-range speakers in the rear doors). A centre speaker is positioned on
the dashboard, and a large subwoofer with a 2 x 100-watt output is housed in the boot.

The components are controlled by a 12-channel DSP amplifier, which is installed under
the driver’s seat. The abbreviation DSP stands for Digital Signal Processors, with which
each speaker’s sound can be adapted to its individual acoustic environment.

A balanced surround sound is created from the harmonious interaction of all components.
Precisely tuned to the interior of the ŠKODA Superb and Superb estate, the system
captivates its audience with harmonious basses, natural mid-tones and a clear treble.
The equalizer, working in four individual modes, ensures perfect tone, be it for enjoying
music, hands-free phone conversations or crystal clear navigation instructions. Three
sound-distribution presets can shift the focus of the sound to the driver, the front of the
car, or to the entire interior. In addition, the sound can be focused on any point in the
interior manually.

The sound experience from the CANTON sound system highlights the performance of the
new ŠKODA Superb in terms of infotainment and connectivity. The redesigned flagship

offers four completely new infotainment systems based on the Volkswagen Group’s latest

standards in networking and Internet connectivity. With optional high-speed Internet
(LTE), the new ŠKODA Superb is the first ŠKODA capable of being a mobile hotspot in
combination with the top ‘Columbus’ system.

The new ŠKODA Superb saloon has been available on the first markets since mid-June.
The market launch for the estate version is set for September in selected regions.
