2019 Skoda Superb spy recorded updates
Skoda superb is preparing to update – that will get new
Liftback and wagon Skoda Superb model year 2019 was seen with very little camouflage. Here’s what we can tell you about the planned release of the new product.
The first thing I would like to stress that the model, judging by the photos, will get a small amount for the upgrade. It is easy to identify, due to the extremely poor camouflage items used in the test superb.
In this approach, Chekhov is not surprising, because one of the favorites – classmates of the parent company – Volkswagen Passat, showing its updated sedan at the recent auto show, also showed minimal changes.
Second, the official release is not far off. A mid-term facelift usually takes place according to the standard scheme:
Updated bumper, made basic improvements to the interior, adds alloy wheels with a new pattern, in addition to the body is applied to another couple of new shades of paint.
Work a little, test a long time need not, therefore, likely in the spring in Geneva or summer of the current year at the next auto show we will see the novelty in two new bodies.
Explore the revamped 2019 Skoda Superb under the microscope
Liftback (this model is also called a hatchback) has received a facelift sports version of “Sportline” that is perfectly visible from the rear of the car, thanks to the presence of two stylish endings exhaust pipes, a small spoiler on the cover of the fifth door and the badge on the front fenders.
Experts Superb, probably can say that the model looks almost the same as the current version of the car, however, despite the apparent similarities, here and there there are minor changes.
For example, the headlights have a revised internal configuration as a result of the transition from variation to bi-xenon full-led. The clusters are thinner compared to what they were before, and come close to the edges of the grille (under the camouflage is not visible clearly, but in fact it will be so).
Visible light changes, made by the designers of Skoda, for the front and rear bumpers. At the time, led rear lights, seem to also have slightly revised graphics.
That is, in fact, and all visible improvements. The drives are still old, the new colors are not represented. Someone will say that this is not enough, and will be, in our opinion, wrong. The current generation Skoda Superb is quite modern, and spoil his sudden massive improvements, in our opinion not worth it. The best is the enemy of the good.
Additional changes to Skoda Superb
Inside the cabin, we do not expect any major changes given that the Skoda flagship has already received an updated infotainment system and digital instrument panel. Probably it will borrow some electronic security technology and help from a Passat, but this is all know the official premiere of Skoda.
From the point of view of engines also is something to see. A well-known fact that the Superb will be the first electrified production model of Skoda, taking into his gut plug-in hybrid powertrain. Base will be all the same Volkswagen Passat. Version GTE has recently been updated and can now pass up to 55 km on pure electricity, in accordance with the WLTP cycle. Zero % harmful emissions, ecology and economy.
Of more standard power units, model from Wolfsburg has improved the diesel engine 2.0 TDI Evo with a capacity of 150 HP reduced by 10 g/km emissions. There is a fairly good chance that the Superb will also be available with this cleaner diesel.
I think we will see 2019 the Superb in the beginning of next month during the Geneva motor show where Skoda will also bring a new subcompact crossover Kamiq.
