-Mid-life update for current generation Superb
-Will also be the first plugin-hybrid from Skoda
-Already spotted sans camouflage
The India-bound Skoda Superb facelift has been officially confirmed for a 2019 debut. This announcement was made by Bernhard Maier, CEO of Skoda Auto, during their annual press conference on 20 March.
We already know what the facelifted Superb will look like thanks to multiple spy shots that have been appearing over the last few months of the vehicle undergoing cold weather testing in Europe. The changes are expected to be mostly cosmetic but will also include new driver assistance systems that have been making their way into various VW family vehicles over the last two years.
This facelifted Superb is India-bound and should arrive here a few months after the global debut. It will be assembled at Skoda’s Aurangabad plant where all the MQB models across Audi, Skoda and Volkswagen are produced for India.
Another major announcement that Skoda made with regard to the Superb is that they will debut a plugin hybrid version of their flagship sedan alongside the facelifted Superb. The technology that this vehicle debuts is expected to set the stage for future Skoda plugin hybrid as well as EV models.
