Skoda is updating the Superb for the 2007 model year. Built at the Skoda assembly plant in Kvasiny, Czech Republic, the Superb offers exceptional interior space and generous trim levels that continue to include equipment normally found in luxury-class cars.
The most striking change to the exterior design is a new radiator grille, updated to give it a new, more 3-dimensional design in line with the new face of Skoda. Turn indicators have been integrated into the wing mirrors and the front indicators have been combined with the headlamps. Similar to those of the new Skoda Roomster and the Octavia, the tail lights are C-shaped, giving the Superb rear view a distinct character. In addition, customers can choose from four new colours: Cappuccino Beige, Olive Green, Anthracite Grey and, from November 2006, Satin Grey.
The 2007 Superb has changes to the interior, including a new dashboard configuration on all trim levels. The instruments clusters are backlit with very gentle white light.
The existing equipment level portfolio - Classic, Comfort and Elegance - will continue without modification and has been extended with the Laurin & Klement, a new top-of-the-range model. Named after the company’s founders, the Superb L&K includes 17” alloy wheels, dual exhaust and special badging. The vehicle's interior includes leather seats, wood trim and sleek metal-finished frames on ventilation outlets and door handles. Pricing of this model is yet to be confirmed.
The Skoda Superb continues to be available with three petrol and three diesel engines, with performance levels ranging from the 115 bhp 2.0 litre to the 2.8 V6 with 193 bhp in the petrol engines and from 105 bhp in the 1.9 TDI to 160 bhp in the 2.5 V6 TDI in the turbo diesel engines.Published 30 July 2006
