Skoda announces prices for flagship Superb model

Skoda has revamped its flagship Superb model.

THEY have given a comprehensive facelift to the estate and hatchback versions of its flagship Superb model and now Skoda has announced the prices.

The Czech carmaker has given the model a fresh, new look and revamped its cabin. And, in these days of people feeling the financial pinch, Skoda has improved fuel consumption and lowered CO2 emissions, a big plus for company car drivers and road tax charges.

The revamped Superb goes on sale here from July 17. Prices for the Superb range will begin at £18,555 on the road for the 1.4-litre Superb TSI 125PS S hatchback.

The top-of-the-range Laurin & Klement Estate model costs £32,455 (OTR) when paired with the 2.0 TDI CR 170PS DFP engine, 4×4 and six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG).

Diesel versions start from £19,760 (OTR). The premium for the estate over its hatch sibling is £1,125.

The Superb facelift will be available in the UK with six advanced engine options: Three petrol and three diesel. Power outputs range from 105PS (1.6 TDI CR) to 260PS for the 3.6 V6 model.

Engines are up to 19 per cent more economical than the previous generation units, and a fuel-efficient GreenLine version offers emissions of only 109g/km.

The fleet sector will make a significant contribution to Superb sales, and with BiK starting at just 16 per cent, and more rear legroom than most prestige cars, the Superb’s appeal is obvious.

Alasdair Stewart, brand director for Skoda UK, commented: “The Superb continues Skoda’s tradition of offering a huge amount of space, engineering excellence and great value for money.

“Since its launch 12 years ago, the Superb has been lauded for its versatility, comfort and equipment. This comprehensive facelift builds on these and we are confident that the excellent improvements to fuel consumption and CO2 will appeal to both fleet and private customers.”
