Skoda had plenty of new Superb-related stuff to show today and one of the new versions announced is the Superb Sportline.
While the Sportline trim is not new (it has been available for the pre-facelifted Superb as well), Skoda wanted to highlight the unique styling and equipment the Superb Sportline brings in facelifted guise.
Starting with the exterior, the Superb Sportline features black elements including the redesigned radiator grille, revised front bumper with the lower grille in a honeycomb pattern, 18-inch Zenith alloy wheels, and the horizontal strip between the LED taillights with dynamic indicators. The smoked full LED Matrix headlights are also standard, as is the 10-mm (0.39-in) lower sports chassis.
Burnished 19‑inch anthracite Vega and black Supernova alloy wheels are available as optional extras for those who want their Superb Sportline to look even more athletic.
Inside, the facelifted Skoda Superb Sportline is equipped with sports seats wrapped in Alcantara and leather with integrated headrests and contrasting stitching, a three-spoke leather steering wheel, decorative strips in a carbon-effect appearance, and chrome accents. The roof lining and pillars can also be clad in black Alcantara should the customer want to pay for that.
Other standard features include the KESSY keyless entry system for all doors, LED ambient lighting, and the special Performance Monitor.
As before, the Skoda Superb Sportline is available with any of the model range’s engines except the 120 PS (118 hp) 1.6 TDI. We’d have it with the range-topping 272 PS (268 hp) 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged gasoline engine, not just because of its power but also because it comes as standard with all‑wheel drive.
Buyers who are more into environmentally-friendly vehicles can have the Superb Sportline as a plug-in hybrid as well with the 218 PS (215 hp) iV powertrain.
