2020 Skoda Superb facelift bookings open in India
Skoda India has started accepting bookings for the Skoda Superb facelift. The car can be booked on the Skoda India website through the payment of the Rs 50,000 booking amount. The launch and deliveries are expected to happen once the lockdown lifts, after the Skoda Karoq's launch in India. The Karoq SUV and Rapid 1.0 TSi can also be booked for Rs 50,000 and Rs 25,000 respectively.
As for design changes to the Superb facelift which made its India debut at the Auto Expo 2020, the butterfly grille now has a thick chrome strip running over it while the headlamps are slimmer and full matrix LED units with new elements. Also new is the front bumper. The air dam is wider and stretches the entire length of the car, also housing the wide LED fog lamps. It gets the wide Skoda lettering seen on the Scala while the tail lamps now have new detailing. Most notable is the thin chrome strip that runs the entire length of the rear, cutting through the lights, which now have sequential turn indicators. The rear bumper too has been redesigned with new grey inserts. The side profile remains identical, just with new split chrome badging on the fenders and doors. The car will sport new alloy wheel designs as well. The interior's biggest addition is the Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, VW's newest infotainment system and new chrome and other trim designs around the cabin.
The BSVI-compliant Skoda Superb facelift will be powered by the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol that debuted in the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace. This version makes 190PS between 4,200 and 6,000rpm, max torque is 320Nm from 1,500 to 4,100rpm. It will come paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The base Style variant with the manual gearbox will be discontinued and only the Sportline and Laurin and Klement trims will be available now. Both versions will get unique paint options with the Sportline carrying an all-black interior trim and a slightly sharper external look. Paint options for the Sportline are Moon White, Race Blue and Steel Grey while the Laurin and Klement will get Lava Blue, Magic Black, Magnetic Brown, Business Grey and Moon White.
The refreshed Skoda Superb in its BSVI iteration should be priced between Rs 30 and 32 lakhs, ex-showroom India.
