It is still too early for the 2018 Skoda Superb to receive a mid-life professional facelift. In fact, we are glad that there are not yet two lighthouses. But they piled up as much technology in the car as they could.
2018 Skoda Superb Features
To begin with, 2018 Skoda Superb replaces the obsolete 8.0-inch infotainment system with the high-resolution 9.2-inch high-resolution entertainment screen on the Columbus. There are also Amursen entertainment and entertainment systems newly updated with larger screens from 6.5 to 8 inches wide. Its input level version, the Superb Swing also gets a new diagonal display of 6.5 inches. As part of the mini-revision, Superb for the first time will come with Park Distance Control and Maneuver Assist in extended mode. This new intelligent feature can detect if there are obstacles and at the same time warn the driver of an audio and visual alert. To avoid collisions, the system is programmed to activate the brakes in case the driver is unaware of early warning.
Surprisingly, there are no new updates on Superb’s bi-xenon headlights, although the Skoda Karoq, Kodiaq and Octavia all feature LEDs. That said, Skoda will at least introduce Velvet Red, a new metallic exterior finish plus a new set of 19-inch Acamar alloy wheels during this year. Before Superb, Velvet Rouge body painting was initially available on the Octavia RS245 and Kodiaq models. We think it may take another facelift to get these LEDs in place.
The 2018 Skoda Superb should also be equipped with an optional massage function for the driver’s seat, but this option is only available on the more expensive and electrically adjustable variant with ventilation and memory functions. Another new feature is the enhanced digital voice, which is a microphone that is mounted at the front, allowing the driver and passenger to talk to those on the rear seats. The automaker also claims that the Superb’s cab is now quieter because of the new acoustic film between the two glass surfaces of the front windows. Also available inside is the roof line for the high-end Laurin and Klement version that can now be ordered in black.
2018 Skoda Superb Prices
With the increase in standard equipment, there is an increase in prices, with Skoda adding between $ 700 and $ 4800 depending on the model. With the 162TSI variant now costing $ 40,690 before the on-road costs of the sedan and $ 42,390 in wagon, prices have increased by $ 700. The 140TDI diesel-powered model now starts at $ 44,690 in cradles and $ 46,390 in cars, a $ 800 jump. The all-wheel drive Superb 206TSI also gets a price increase of $ 800 to bring its total to $ 51,790 and $ 53,490 for the sedan and the wagon respectively.
In addition to the transversal updates, the Sportline range variant adds adaptive shock absorber control, a premium Canton sound system, electrically adjustable and heated passenger seats, a hands-free shoe and a new color of pale green. As a result, the Sportline variant now costs $ 56,790 for the sedan and $ 58,490 for the wagon, an increase of $ 4,800 over the existing model.
