- Laurin & Klement trim now benefits with a virtual cockpit
- The cabin features an updated Amundsen infotainment system
Skoda has launched the updated version of its luxury sedan – the Superb with a starting price of Rs 31.99 lakh for the Sportline trim and Rs 34.99 lakh for the top-spec Laurin & Klement trim. The refreshed Superb features subtle cosmetic tweaks and feature additions to the cabin.
Visually, the overall design of the 2021 Superb remains unchanged and is in line with the current generation model. The sleek LED headlamps unit comes integrated with LED DRLs which also adds up as coming / leaving home function and turn indicators.
The cabin of the new Superb gets an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an updated interface. It now supports in-built navigation without an SD card. Features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Mirrorlink with voice command control enable the driver to wirelessly connect the device to the multimedia system. Skoda has also added a wireless charging pad and Type-C USB ports in the centre console. These changes are common across both the variants.
The premium Laurin & Klement (L&K) variant comes with all the bells and whistles and comprises of leather upholstery in two colours – Coffee Brown and Stone Beige. The dashboard is finished with piano black inserts but the party piece is the new two-spoke steering wheel with the ‘Laurin & Klement’ inscription and the virtual cockpit which looks upmarket and at par to its German counterparts. Another value addition on the L&K trim is the 360-degree surround view and the park assist function which identifies an appropriate parallel or perpendicular parking spot. Moreover, the Superb parks itself which means that parking in tight places is now a breeze. For the Sportline, the three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel gets a special ‘Sportline’ badging which compliments the Alcantara sports seats and integrated headrests.
With the new prices, the Sportline and the Laurin & Klement variants are now costlier by Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh, respectively over the 2020 model. The engine under the bonnet remains the same with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor producing 188bhp and 320Nm of torque and coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission
