A car that truly earns its name.
Imagine a car that blurs the line between beauty and functionality. Where style and space are in perfect harmony. Where there’s room for everything except compromise.Welcome to the new ŠKODA Superb.
Sculpted by a new design language, the Superb takes its place at the top of the ŠKODA range. As well as being incredibly stylish, it’s also the most spacious and comfortable ŠKODA yet – perfect for family and business alike. And being a ŠKODA, this car showcases our finest Simply Clever thinking, and is the most technologically sophisticated model we have ever produced.
This car represents over 120 years of forward thinking, a commitment to making cars that are as much a joy to drive now as they were back when we started. Because instead of looking back on our eventful history, we use it as an inspiration to look ahead.
The Superb has also been recognised by Drive as Australia's Best Family Car of the Year.

The ŠKODA designers responsible for the new Superb were set a clear task: to create a car revolutionary in terms of both technological sophistication and design. The result of their efforts is the new Superb; taking ŠKODA's design language to a completely new level.
Precise and horizontal lines highlight the athletic build of the new Superb. The LED technology combined with the crystalline design elements in the distinctive C-shaped rear lights further adds to the feeling of poised elegance.
The side of the Superb radiates a dynamic profile with emotional appeal - a result of per fectly-balanced proportions and sporty silhouette. The wheelbase has been extended by 80 mm as compared to the previous generation. Moreover, the visual appearance of the side profile has been reduced by making the headlights and taillights reach deep into the sides; with clean-cut surface planes combined with bold edges.
The front view of the ŠKODA Superb is characterised by a wide radiator grille, centrally positioned logo and dynamically contoured bonnet. The razor-sharp wide headlights and front fog lights also help conjure up a striking brand individuality.
Inspired by the VisionC concept car, the designers have extended the bonnet edges as far as the line that goes between the bottom and top sections of the vehicle creating a so-called "Tornado Line 360". As a result, the front looks compact despite the variety of shapes used in it.
The sleek contours of the door mirrors with integrated indicators give the new Superb a sporty look, whilst maintaining total functionality.
In addition to being electrically-adjustable and heated, the door mirrors retract automatically once the car is locked. Activated upon unlocking and opening the door, the LED environment lights illuminate to help you see surroundings more clearly such as puddles.
Furthermore, the mirrors feature auto dimming and memory function, allowing the mirrors to automatically adjust to the setting of the driver's preference.
The optional, electrically-adjustable panoramic sunroof gives you the feeling of unlimited space and freedom. On the wagon, the sunroof boasts over one metre in length. The front part of the sunroof can be tilted up and slid backwards, whilst the rear part is firmly built into the roof.
Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front Light System and LED daytime running lights celebrate the renowned Bohemian glass-cutting skills. The integrated headlight washers ensure headlights are clean so visibility is maximised.
The stylish decorative door sill trims with the Superb inscription are a clear nod to the car’s overall blend of form and function.
Loaded with thoughtful features, the new Superb delivers exceptional comfort, whether its staying relaxed during long journeys or being entertained whilst on the move.
The 3-spoke multifunctional steering wheel allows full control of the Bluetooth® phone and audio streaming, as well as the control of the trip computer functionalities and vehicle status. The steering wheel can also be upgraded to include paddle shifters for the sporting enthusiasts.
You can enjoy great personalisation options†, allowing different drivers to create and save their own indi v idual preferences. These include setting the driving mode, the electrically adjustable driver seat, Climatronic air conditioning, radio and navigation system.
Whi l s t most competitors offer dual zone climate control, the SUPERB's three-zone Climatronic air-conditioning allows the driver, front passenger and rear passengers to set their own prefe r red temperature independently. At the same time, an enhanced air filtration system improves cabin air quality, reducing dust and pollen.
Advanced Keyless Entry including Smart Start (KESSY)† can be added to allow the driver
to lock and unlock the car and start and
stop the engine without having to insert
or even handle the key. As long as the key
is within 1.5m of the sensor, the system
will work, and a number of simply clever
features ensure you can check the lock,
preventing you from locking the key inside
and preventing unwanted access.
†Standard on the SUPERB 4x4 and SUPERB Wagon 4x4; included in the optional Image Pack for SUPERB, SUPERB Wagon, SUPERB TDI and SUPERB Wagon TDI.
There’s a place for everything, even in your car. The new Superb features a multitude of compartments, pockets and holders, keeping your elegant interior tidy and your belongings safe.
A spacious storage compartment is housed in the front armrest, within which you can store items safely, or keep them cool. Cup holders can also be found in the centre console. For added convenience, a base grip bottle opener is fitted allowing the driver to easily open bottles with one hand.
The illuminated and air-conditioned glove box in the lower part of the dashboard by the front passenger is a convenient place to stow away items.
The tablet holder enables you to securely fit your device to the rear armrest or the front seat headrest, which will keep rear passengers entertained throughout any journey.
Two plastic cargo elements are located within the Superb's boot, ideal for securing items. Fitted with velcro, they can be attached to the boot floor and when not in use, can be conveniently stowed away behind both rear wells in the boot.
The rear passenger armrest contains two cup holders for convenience.
A unique novelty on all Superb are the two original Superb Umbrellas, situated inside both front doors. The compartments are designed so that the water from the wet umbrella flows away from the car, keeping the interior dry.
You will find a 1.5-l bottle holder in a spacious compartment in the front and rear doors.
Hidden within the new Superb's sleek design is exceptional space. The luggage capacity is one of the largest in its class, competing with large SUV's. For added practicality, Simply Clever solutions have been added to make handling luggage even easier.
Now it is possible to open the boot simply by sweeping your foot underneath the rear bumper, thanks to the Virtual Pedal part of the optional Tech Pack. This feature enables hands-free access to the electric tailgate.
Alternatively access to the electric tailgate can be opened and closed through conventional means at a mere touch of a button. The tailgate can be operated from four separate locations:
- from the remote control
- from the centre console
- from the internal button on the tailgate
- rom the external soft-touch button
The SUPERB is one of the largest in its class for space; the Sedan boasts 625 litres of boot space, whilst the Wagon offers a capacity of 660 litres , stretched to 1,950 litres with the rear seats folded down.
You can communicate, work or entertain yourself with ease on board the SUPERB. The new generation of infotainment brings top-level connectivity so you can enjoy the best functions of your mobile devices on-the-go.
For those who love their music, the eight speaker sound system can be upgraded to a premium, German Canton Sound System^ with twelve speakers, including a central speaker and subwoofer. Canton also adds a digital equaliser; sound level controls allowing optimisation for all or individual occupants; vehicle noise cancellation and the ability to play Dolby 5.1 surround sound.
Your car and smartphone are now in perfect sync. The SmartLink^^ system delivers a seamless connection between your car and selected apps from your smartphone using, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ interfaces. Whether you want to select and listen to music on your smartphone or receive turn-by-turn directions, selected apps are mirrored and can be controlled via the SUPERB’s Columbus infotainment unit.
The car stereo, 9.2" 'Glass Design" Columbus Navigation System and trip computer are housed in one system that gives the driver access to the vehicle setup and comfort functions through a single device. The proximity sensor recognises when a hand is moving towards the touchscreen and brings up the function buttons ready to be used, while intuitive swiping and pinching movements allow the user to scroll menus and zoom into maps easily.
^Included in the optional Tech Pack. ^^SmartLink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of iOS and Android.
Outstanding attention to design and detail means you benefit from not only sophistication, but also exceptional levels of safety for you and your loved ones. In addition to the essential prerequisites of safety such as the exceptionally strong body and excellent driving characteristics of the vehicle, the SUPERB offers nine airbags as standard.
Passenger Protect Assist uses information from the car's braking and electronic systems to recognise when there is a high chance of collision. If this is detected, the front seat belts will tighten and the sunroof (if equipped) and windows will close to help keep the car's occupants in the optimum position for airbag deployment and reduce items flying into the car. Drivers who prefer to desensitise the Passenger Protect Assist can change these settings on their touchscreen display.
It can also play a predictive role in conjunction with the front radar (Front Assist). Monitoring the traffic ahead, the Passenger Protect Assist is able to predict emergencies and intervene across a wider range of situations.
The Superb puts a host of innovative assist systems at your service, offering unrivalled convenience and greater safety than ever before.
An outstanding, technological advancement, standard on the SUPERB is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)◊ - an extension of the conventional cruise control system with advanced capabilities based on a radar sensor located on the front grille. When ACC is activated, the vehicle automatically brakes and accelerates to a speed and distance set by the driver. The dynamics of the ACC system can be individually varied by selecting one of the driving programs from the Driving Mode Selection.
Utilising the same radar sensor, the Front Assist◊ safety system monitors the area in front of the car at speeds above 30km/h. Using predefined algorithms, it decides whether these objects pose a potential risk of collision and alerts the driver if the distance to object is insufficient – initially with a tone and an alert on the multi-functional display; followed by a warning jolt of the brakes. If the driver doesn't respond, the car will brake itself – all the way to a standstill if needed, helping to avoid a collision or reduce the severity of the accident. It can be turned off by the driver via the touchscreen. For vehicle speeds below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake is designed to help a driver avoid a lowspeed crash or to reduce its severity.
For those wishing to make both parallel parking and bay parking easier than ever, an Automatic Parking Assist◊Δ can be added. With a press of a button, the system will begin searching for a parking space in a line of cars or other obstacles. When a suitable space is found (the car's length + 60cm is all the space needed), the car will steer itself into the space whilst the driver controls the pedals. This system will now also steer the car out of a line of cars from its parking space and with two presses of the same button, the car will search for and manoeuvre into a bay parking space.
Lane Assist◊ is a lane depar ture warning system that is designed to help reduce the likelihood of the vehicle leaving the road or crossing into an oncoming lane and therefore the risk of accident as a result of driver distraction or a lapse in concentration. Using a camera positioned within the rear-view mirror unit, it actively recognises lane markings and takes corrective action by gently steering you back on course. The system is also equipped with a warning tone and message in the multifunction display for situations that require additional actions from the driver.
ΔAvailable in optional Tech Pack, standard on SUPERB SPORTLINE 4x4/SUPERB SPORTLINE 4x4 Wagon. ◊Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver's responsibility of the vehicle.
Engine and transmission
If the design of the SUPERB teased you from the outside, a closer look under the bonnet will set your pulse racing. The new generation of petrol and diesel engines offer outstanding performance without compromising on fuel economy and comfort. All engines feature Green Tech~ - a technology allowing for further improvement in fuel economy through the "Start Stop" and Brake Energy Recuperation features. "Start Stop" allows the engine to automatically switch off when idle and immediately switch back on as soon as the brake or clutch pedals are released. “Stop Start” can be deactivated when required. In addition, Brake Energy Recuperation enables the use of kinetic energy to charge the car battery when the brakes are applied.
The SUPERB offers two impressive 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engines. The powerful 162TSI from the sporty OCTAVIA RS, provides incredible power and torque, yet remaining fuel efficient at 6.4L/100km#. For those in the pursuit for speed, the SUPERB 4x4 and SUPERB Wagon 4x4 engine channels 206kW of power and 350Nm of torque, offering heart-thumping excitement from idle to redline. With the latest in all-wheel-drive technology ensuring optimum grip during fast cornering, you’ll never feel more at one with the road than in a SUPERB 4x4.
In addition to the petrol variants, the SUPERB TDI and SUPERB Wagon TDI turbocharged diesel engine offers a strong 400Nm with a remarkable combined fuel economy of 4.8L/100km#. Based on this figure, the 140TDI has an extraordinary fuel range of almost 1400km on a single tank.
Enjoy the high performance of your car in maximum comfort and safety. The Adaptive Chassis ControlΔ continuously evaluates and responds to various driving situations (braking, acceleration, turning), adapting the damping and steering characteristics. As part of the infotainment menu, Driving Mode Selection allows the driver to adapt the car's behaviour to their preference or needs. Five driving modes are available: Normal, Sport, Eco, Comfort and Individual (Individual allowing the driver to configure their own settings). The car will then adapt the engine torque, accelerator sensitivity, power steering, headlight control (with AFS), DSG transmission, and air conditioning to suit the profile selected.
All engine platforms are coupled with a 6-Speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) automatic gearbox which uses two clutches and two sets of gears to preselect your next gear while you’re still driving in your current gear. Used in nearly all high-end sports cars, DSG dual-clutch technology is trusted by the world’s leading car manufacturers.
~Deactivation of Stop-Start function will not occur in certain conditions.
