Motoroids became the first one to report about Skoda working on launching a pocket friendly variant of the Superb flagship sedan.
Now, the manufacturer will launch the new trim level on 18th this month and the variant will be called as “Ambition”. At present the Superb is available with a lot of features and comes with three engine options -1.8 TSi (Petrol), 2.0 Litre TDi diesel and a 3.2 V6 Petrol.
The ‘economy’ variant is rumored to be coming ouw way with a choice of two engines- the tried and tested 1.8 TSi motor and the 2.0 litre TDi oil burner. The TSi features a 6 speed manual gearbox while the diesel has the popular 6 speed dual clutch automatic. This variant will not feature an Electric Sunroof, the Bi-Xenon cornering headlamps, the touchscreen system on the center console, the Bluetooth function, ESP, Hill Hold, Hill Descent features and some other luxuries that come with higher priced variants of this car. The Ambition trim should be easier on the pocket by a whopping 1.5 Lakhs over the current base model. The current entry-level variant boasts of dual-climate control and 6-airbags, and we feel that Skoda may reduce the number of airbags and offer a basic air con to keep the price in check.
The Skoda Superb is known for the spaciousness it offers and it has been one of its major selling points and it is likely to remain so even with the upcoming stripped down version. We are eagerly looking forward to the new version of the car. Luxury is all set to become affordable and now don’t say you still can’t buy one!
Safely expect a full fledged report on the new variant once we get to meet it on 18th.
