2020 Skoda Superb Looks Familiar But Sports New Tech, 10 Powertrain Options

The new Superb that’s currently making its official debut at Frankfurt Frankfurt Motor Show in both sedan and Estate form may not look all that different to its predecessor, but is in fact the facelifted model first revealed online in May.

Compared to the pre-facelift Superb, the new car receives a revised front bumper that adds 8 mm (0.31-inches) to the length of the sedan and 6 mm (0.23-inches) to the Estate.

Also present into the revamped family car is the car manufacturer’s latest headlight technology that prevents other road users from being dazzled. The system works thanks to a windshield-mounted camera that detects oncoming traffic and shuts off individual segments within the light beam.

Styling changes include a new grille at the front and a piece of horizontal chrome trim stretching between the taillights at the rear, as well as new 18- and 19-inch alloys.

There are no less than 10 different engine/transmission combinations to choose from in the facelifted Superb. The base unit is a 1.6-liter TDI delivering 118 HP, while next up is a 2.0-liter TDI with either 147 or 187 HP. On the petrol front, there is a 1.5-liter TSI with 147 HP, a 2.0-liter TSI delivering 187 HP, and a range-topping 2.0-liter TSI with 268 HP, all-wheel drive and a 7-speed DSG transmission as standard. And if the count doesn’t seem right, bear in mind that, apart from the top version, the rest can be paired either to a manual or an auto ‘box, depending on the unit.

    Very nice this Scout!

    26000€ cheaper than A6 Allroad!

      Because it is not A6 Allroad, not that level but still very nice and capable car.

      • Aeromann

        Yes! But under the nice plastics it’s the same technology. 😉

          Not quite. This is a Passat. The Audis have different platform, longitude. Engines are mostly the same with a bit extra hps for Audi.

          It is not completely, A6 (like the smaller A4) is on MLB platform utilizing a longitudinal engine layout whereas Superb, Passat, Golf etc. are on the MQB with a more common transverse engine arrangement.

    Interior design language is from 2006 B6 Passat with a new screen… I mean back then it stood out but now it’s just bland.
