The Australian details and pricing structure for the new 2018 Skoda Superb release have been confirmed ahead of the forthcoming launch in September. The new liftback and wagons were first revealed back in June, and a tentative August launch was announced. Obviously, a delay of a month has occurred, but now it looks like things are back on track. Let’s take a closer look at some of the interesting details that have emerged.
Every now and again, a car range will experience a significant technology bump that lifts the lineup to a whole new level. This appears to be the case with the new Skoda Superb, which includes new equipment, such as: an updated 9.2” columbus display (the previous unit was 8”), side assist (commonly known as blind spot detection), a rear cross traffic alert, Traffic Jam Assist and the brand new Emergency Assist communication system. All of these new systems have a list value of $2,770, but their inclusion as standard equipment has only raised the price by $700 for the 140 TDI Diesel and 162 TSI Sportline and by $800 for the Skoda Superb 206 TSI 4×4.
Now that we’ve touched on pricing, it’s interesting to discover that the flagship Superb 206 TSI Sportline has been raised by $4,800. This has happened because of the aforementioned upgrades and the inclusion of other equipment, such as adaptive chassis control, a premium Canton sound system, virtual pedal, automatic parking assist and electrically adjustable rear heated passenger seats, as standard. All of these new Sportline features were originally part of an optional “Tech Pack” that cost $3,400, which was very popular with buyers. Adding these features into the Sportline has simplified things significantly and will make order fulfillment quicker.
The prices for the entire lineup excluding on road costs is as follows:
The Superb Liftback Sedan
162 TSI – $40,690
140 TDI – $44,690
206 TSI 4×4 – $51,790
Sportline – $56,790
The Superb Wagon
162 TSI – $42,390
140 TDI – $46,390
206 TSI 4×4 – $53,490
Sportline – $58,490
The Sportline can now be had with some interesting paint options. The most interesting is called “Dragon Skin,” it’s a golden metallic colour that’s available as an optional extra for $1,700. There are also pearl effect and metallic paint options available for $700. A sunroof for the Superb liftback will set you back $1,700, and a panoramic sunroof for the wagon will cost $1,900.
