According to a report by Cartoq, Skoda India will be launching the 2014 Superb facelift on January 11.
The 2014 Skoda Superb facelift features cosmetic upgrades up front and at the rear, along with some tweaks to the engines and interior.
On the front end, a revised front grille, resembling that of the new gen Octavia, integrates neatly with the bumper. The new Skoda logo is positioned just above the front grille and the new grille, along with redesigned headlamps, fog lamps and a wider looking bumper, do well in infusing a sense of freshness with the Superb. The shape of the front fender, as well as the bonnet has been refreshed as well. The new headlights now feature a a bi-xenon setup with DRLs.
At the rear, the number plate now sits a bit upwards. The LED tail-lamps form a new ‘C’ shaped pattern, which bear resemblance to the one found on the Laura. The car will be available with a new alloy wheel design and also two new exterior paint options- Meteor Grey and Moon White.
On the inside, the new Superb also gets a thoroughly updated cabin with a new four-spoke steering wheel, new fabrics and patterns to choose from, with a unique brown-ivory color combo for the top of the line L&K variant. The rear benchers get the feature of being able to push the front seats forward to increase the legroom . With the already huge legroom, we wonder whether they would ever require that though.
Internationally, the engine options for the Superb refresh include a 1.8-litre TSI petrol engine, a 2.0-litre TDI and a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine. For Indian market though, the V6 petrol won’t be available now.
Similar the Octavia, an entry level ‘Ambition’ variant, with a six speed manual gearbox and a TSI enigne, will be offered with the Superb too. Of course, you also have the option of ordering the 1.8 TSI with a seven speed DSG unit. The 2.0 liter diesel is likely to be available with a six-speed DSG auto box only.
