The 2019 Skoda Superb has been officially announced. Here is a complete comparison between facelift and pre-facelift models.
New Skoda Superb 2017
Beginning with the design, the changes introduced by the mid-cycle refresh are as nuanced as expected. At the front, the Skoda Superb now comes with narrower Matrix LED headlights, a first for Skoda. The new main light consists of an LED module for low and high beam, three additional LED high beam segments, a static LED cornering light, a narrow LED DRL strip that doubles as a turn indicator, and a needle-like LED structure that is part of it. animation.

The radiator grille now carries double slats, protruding slightly below the larger and again redesigned bumper. The length of the redesigned bumper has increased by 8 mm to 4,869 mm. Speaking of redesigned things, the fog lights are also new. Fog lights have switched from halogen to LED technology, providing a more compact footprint. It includes four LED light sources.
On the side are new alloy wheels in 18- and 19-inch sizes. At the rear end, there are redesigned full-LED taillights along with dynamic tail indicators that illuminate with a wide outward movement. At the rear, there’s a full-width chrome strip between the dynamic turn indicators and finely-tuned taillights with widely spaced Skoda block letters.
Inside, the new Skoda Superb comes with new chrome accents on the instrument panel and door trims, new decorative trims for the center console and instrument panel, and new color contrast stitching on the door armrests as well as leather and Alcantara seats. . Ambition and Style trims received new seat covers. The L&K class gained a choice of black or beige Alcantara roofing, including lined roof pillars. The facelift model has a new, enlarged Phone Box.
The Skoda Superb is now equipped with Predictive Cruise Control, which automatically slows/adjusts the car’s speed by detecting traffic, turns or speed restrictions using images from the windshield camera and data from the navigation system. The car also features a new Emergency Assistance for multi-lane roads. This system automatically steers the vehicle to the side of the road in an emergency. It uses Side Assist’s proprietary radar sensor as well as Lane Assist and Park Assist. In addition, the company has now equipped the vehicle with Pre-Aid with Biased Pedestrian Protection.
Skoda Superb News And Information
For the first time in Skoda, the facelift Superb features a new electromechanical brake booster and an aerodynamic flap on the rear axle suspension for better stability. There are six conventional engines to choose from.
The mid-cycle refresh marks the arrival of a plug-in hybrid variant with an ‘iV’ suffix. The Superb iV is Skoda’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle. It uses a combination of a 115 kW (156 PS) 1.4L TSI petrol engine and an 85 kW (115 PS) electric motor. Together they deliver a maximum output of 160 kW (218 PS) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. The 6-speed DSG is offered as standard on the electric model. The electric motor is powered by a 13 kWh battery that can be charged in 3.5 hours using a standard socket or using a wall box with a 3.6 kWh charging output. Using only the energy stored in the battery, the car can travel up to 55 km (WLTP cycle). When you buy a Skoda Octavia you know what you’re getting. Since its launch in 1996 (we’ll ignore the slow-selling model that shared its name in the ’60s), Volkswagen Group ownership has played a big part in changing the image of Skoda. Smart buyers are lured by its ‘Golf-like’ appeal, but with a big boot and a lower price tag. That’s why it’s consistently been Skoda’s most successful car, accounting for 28.7% of sales last year.
The Octavia, along with the (recently updated) Volkswagen Golf, received a facelift for 2017 to keep it up to date. But the firm walked with caution – it doesn’t want to scare away conservative buyers by doing something too drastic, does it?
Visual updates come to new split headlights (in our eyes, a tiny 2010 Mercedes E-Class – we’ll let you decide whether that’s good or bad) and updated front and rear bumpers with a wider Kodiaq-esque grille. . It’s slightly longer than usual, and the rear track has been widened by 20-30mm to broaden the Octavia’s stance and improve stability.

Inside, all versions now use gesture prediction technology and a new 8.0 or 9.2-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
For our first drive in the new Octavia, we jumped into a special fleet: a Technology SE aimed directly at the driver of the company car with its ultra-efficient 1.6-liter 115hp turbodiesel engine. With around 71% of last year’s Octavia allocation, Skoda is vital to serving this market. That’s why SE Tech comes with the kind of features that will make life easier for business users: satellite navigation, in-car wifi hotspot, adaptive cruise control and parking sensors.
While the Technology SE feels anything but simplistic, most dedicated buyers will choose the mid-range SE L. At this level, the Octavia is starting to look almost premium – watch out for the Volkswagen Golf – with its Alcantara and leather interior. chrome strip and LED headlights on the front bumper. We tested this spec by pairing it with the 1.4-litre TSI engine (we’ll keep track of driving impressions) and the premium Laurin and Klement models.
The latter features unique 18-inch alloys, a premium sound system, heated leather seats (brown in our test car) and a 9.2-inch infotainment screen. If you think this is starting to feel like an Audi, don’t worry – there are a few features to keep your feet on the ground, like the old-school manual handbrake and no electric trunk release.
Skoda Superb Range Review
Whichever feature you choose, it’s easy to forget that the Skoda Octavia rivals C-segment hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf, Seat Leon, Ford Focus and Mazda 3. With a large trunk (590 liters in the car) there is plenty of room. ). The hatch is 610 liters in real estate) and the quality of the interior makes you wonder why you’d go to the trouble of spending the extra money on a VW. Seats are comfortable – which is important when so many Octavias travel long distances up and down the highway – and the multitude of adjustments in the driver’s seat and steering wheel make it easy to find a good driving position.
The Octavia is very satisfying to drive, with precise steering and precise manual gear changes. We were surprised to find that the 1.6 diesel we tried offered only five gears, but Skoda has changed the ratio which means it doesn’t make any noise at highway speeds. The flip side to that is having to drop to third when crossing the 30mph limit, but that’s something you’ll get used to.
A pleasant surprise comes in the form of the 1.4-liter TSI petrol engine. If car buyers want to turn their backs on diesel engines, as the report indicates, the 1.4 is a very attractive alternative. More refined than a diesel, but with 150 horsepower, it’s good for fast (if not fast) progress.
We sampled a 150hp 2.0-liter diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual and a DSG dual-clutch automatic box. While both are good, our partner’s choice is DSG. It suits the Octavia’s relaxed approach, and the selectable driving modes (Normal / Eco / sport, plus comfort if you choose the optional adaptive dampers) mean it works well whatever your mood.
The New Škoda Superb
We haven’t tried the adaptive suspension Octavia, but while it’s on the solid side, the standard setup provides a cohesive ride, especially on the smaller 16-inch alloys.
If you want to make a statement or are looking for something a little more dynamic, you may want to look elsewhere. But as a practical, efficient hatchback or station wagon with a surprisingly luxurious interior and a not-so-depressing driving experience, the Octavia is the same commendable choice as always.
Choose the machine that best suits your needs. While the 1.6-liter turbodiesel isn’t our first choice, it’s more refined than many competitors and will do the job for the most frugal buyer. The 1.4 TSI is an astonishing delight, while the 2.0-liter diesel is the range’s do-it-all engine.
Updates for 2017 are few and far between, and not all to our liking (ahem, style changes), but we do appreciate the new infotainment system. It’s slippery to use and makes the car feel better than before. High mileage drivers will also appreciate the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are also some attractive financial offers that make Octavia a more sensible proposition for private buyers.
