Motoroids became the first one to report about Skoda working on launching a pocket friendly variant of the Superb flagship sedan.
Now, the manufacturer officially launched the new trim level today and the variant is christened as “Ambition”. The ‘economy’ variant offers 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 (DSG).
This variant will not feature an Electric Sunroof, the Bi-Xenon headlamps, headlamp washers, touch screen 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. Fortunately, the new variant does not misses out on safety features and offers 8-airbags, ABS, EBD, TCS, ESP and ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation).
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 just got affordable and now don’t say you still can’t buy one!
