The current generation Superb came out back in early 2015 and will soon receive the mid-cycle facelift. The 2018 Skoda Superb facelift will get some new styling bits along with a handful of additional features. Ahead of the updated Czech car’s official debut, the revised design of the Superb facelift’s front-end has been leaked thru a couple of spy images that have surfaced on the web world. It’s important to mention here that the updated Superb is expected go on sale in India next year.
As you can see in the couple of spy images we have, the updated Skoda Superb’s front grille looks almost the same as the one sported by the current car. The only difference arises out of the rounded lower corners that the new grille has. The vertically positioned black-colored slats have been retained. The lower grille, however, is a bit smaller in profile. That said, the size of the air intake seems to have remained largely the same. Skoda has only reduced the extra portions on the side of the grille, which didn’t have air inlets. Hence, the bumper will likely have more space between the lower grille and the foglamp housings.
The 2018 Skoda Superb facelift will come with full-LED headlamps. Also, as can be made out, the company has positioned the headlamp washers a bit inwards. Other than the styling changes at the car’s front-end, the company might also give its largest sedan a new set of alloy wheels, updated taillamps, and a new rear bumper.
At the moment, the Skoda Superb is available with three petrol engine options and two diesel ones globally – 1.4-litre TSI, 1.8-litre TSI, and 2.0-litre TSI, 1.6-litre TDI, and 2.0-litre TDI. It’s not known of the company would make any changes to the engine lineup. However, rumors abound that Skoda might introduce a 215 bhp plug-in hybrid variant. The powertrain of this model will comprise of 154 bhp 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine along with 112 bhp electric motor. The hybrid arrangement will also comprise a 13 kWh battery to power the electric motor, which will, in turn, offer at least 64 kms of zero-emissions driving range.
