Sketch of 2016 Skoda Superb luxury saloon released

The 2016 Skoda Superb is in the works and will be based on the Volkswagen group’s MQB platform that it will share with the upcoming 2015 Passat, which itself is due for an official unveil early next month. A sketch of the 2016 Superb luxury saloon – which is said to have been a part of the Czech embassy’s presentation in Beijing – has hit the interweb.

From the released sketch, it is evident that the 2016 Superb borrows heavily from the Skoda Vision C concept. A tighter, edgier design seems to be in the works with the new Skoda family face making its presence felt at the front end of the car. A coupe-like roofline at the rear and the rising window-line will give the 2016 Superb an air of sporty appeal.

The new Superb isn’t expected to grow larger in size, but is expected to deliver better interior volume on the back of better packing and space utilization. Also, the 2016 Superb is expected to raise the bar further with top-notch interior quality. All all-turbo petrol and diesel engine line up will be offered on the 2016 Superb, and this line up will be shared with the 2015 Passat. Both manual and dual clutch automatic gearboxes will be offered on the 2016 Skoda Superb.
