Skoda To Launch Superb Facelift In India In May 2020
The premium sedan will soon become a petrol-only offering
Skoda will offer the facelifted Superb with a BS6-compliant 2.0-litre TSI engine (192PS/320Nm).
Expect the Superb facelift to come with a few cosmetic changes on the exterior.
The facelifted Superb is likely to get some new features including ambient lighting and a bigger touchscreen infotainment system.
It will get a price hike owing to the BS6 compliance.
The premium sedan is expected to be offered with a BS6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol engine. This unit is capable of producing 192PS of power and 320Nm of torque and will come paired to a 7-speed DSG transmission option. There won’t be a Superb diesel (at least in 2020) on offer as Skoda Auto Volkswagen India is planning to ditch diesel engines for the short term. Skoda currently offers the Superb with two BS4 engines: a 1.8-litre TSI engine (180PS/250Nm) and a 2.0-litre TDI unit (177PS/350Nm) and is offered with either a 6-speed DSG or a 7-speed DSG transmission option.
In terms of changes, the facelifted Superb is expected to sport new LED Matrix headlamps on the top-spec variant along with LED fog lamps, new alloy wheels, a bigger 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with connected car tech and a sunroof. What's more, Skoda could also offer a 360-degree camera, a three-zone climate control, park assist, and ambient lighting on the Superb facelift.
The current-gen Superb is priced in the range of Rs 25.99 lakh and Rs 33.49 lakh (ex-showroom). However, prices are likely to go up once its BS6 version is introduced. The Superb facelift will continue its rivalry with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and the Volkswagen Passat.
