The new Skoda Superb will become hybrid

Skoda Superb

The third generation of Soda Superb debuted in 2015, with the car being adopted quite well in Europe. In 2016, the model sold 85,879 units, which is a record for the model, but after that, the sales declined. Thus, for the first 10 months of 2018, Skoda Supers sold 63,336 units, which is 7% less than the same period in 2017.

Now the model will be upgraded and the final result will be on the market in 2019. The local media published a test prototype of the car, which makes it clear that the changes in the appearance of the Skoda flagship are minimal. The model will receive a modernized radiator grille with larger chrome edges and LED headlamps.

The rear stops are also modernized, making the exterior changes exhausted. There are no photos of the salon, but there are no revolutionary changes there. Most likely in the facelift, Skoda’s flagship will receive a multimedia system.

The big news is under the hood as the Skoda Superb became the first mass electrified model of the Czech carmaker. It will be available in a hybrid version, based on a petrol engine TSI with a capacity of 1.5 litres and 150 hp. It will work in combination with an electric motor with 95 hp, while the mileage at electricity will be only 70 km.

At the moment, Skoda Superb is available with 1.5 TSI (150 hp) and 2.0 TSI (272 hp) petrol, as well as diesel 1.6 TDI (120 hp) and 2.0 TDI (150 or 190 hp). For all modifications, a four-wheel drive system is also planned.
