Skoda UK has updated its flagship Superb sedan and the estate. Starting May 2017, the brand will roll out the upgraded models which come with automatic emergency call as additional security and a few comfort-oriented features.
The updated Superb range comes with Care Connect as standard from Ambition trim upwards – regardless of the choice of infotainment system.
The display size of the high-end Columbus GPS system has grown from 8 to 9.2 inches whereas the Swing unit is uprated from 5 to 6.5 inches.
The park assist feature comes with extended function called Manoeuvre Assist which now also detects obstacles in front of the vehicle.
The system not only warns the driver with optical and acoustic signals but also brakes the vehicle automatically if necessary.
Rounding off the changes, Skoda has also added the optional massage function for the driver’s seat which is available with the electrically adjustable variant, including ventilation and memory function.
Skoda has also attempted to lower noise levels - the front side windows now feature an acoustic film between the two glass surfaces. The India-spec Superb, available only as a sedan, remains unchanged and continues to compete with the likes of Toyota Camry, Audi A3, Honda Accord and the Mercedes CLA.
