Skoda India launched the 2016 Superb in India earlier this year on February 23rd. Previous reports suggested that customers looking forward to the diesel variant of the luxurious sedan would have to wait till the month of August.

Now, if reports are to be believed, the company, which is a part of the Volkswagen group, will soon equip the Indian spec Superb with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC). The feature is already available on the global spec model. The system allows the driver of the vehicle to choose from three different driving modes: Comfort, Normal and Sport. The system adjusts the steering weight, gearshift reaction time, engine responsiveness and even stiffens or softens the suspension of the vehicle in order to suit the needs of the driver.
The current generation of the Superb that is sold in the country has similar settings with the difference being that the settings are applicable only to the engine gearbox and the steering. As the India spec model receives a different suspension, the company had avoided the extra cost of developing and tuning the same for the Indian model. The company will now, nevertheless introduce the adaptive dampers hence completing the DCC suite of controls. As the complicated procedure is bound to take a while, the Superb with the complete DCC controls is likely to make it only by 2017.
