Before the fourth-generation Superb makes its appearance later this year, Skoda has given additional information about the car.
The camouflaged test mule previewed a look that has changed from the current-gen model in terms of appearance. The Superb seems to have carried over the sharp edges and pronounced creases of its predecessor, as seen by the strong crease running down the side.
Skoda has not released any inside photos, but the firm does claim that customers will be able to choose a touchscreen that is the largest in a Skoda, measuring up to 12.9 inches. Additionally, the gear lever will be relocated to the steering column from its usual location.
Despite having the same wheelbase as the model it replaces, Skoda claims the new Superb will be roomier. The fourth-generation sedan will be 15 mm narrower and 43 mm longer and 12 mm higher than the vehicle it replaces.
In terms of safety technology, the 2018 Superb will have up to 10 airbags; 8 of them, including one in the middle of the front seats, will come standard. Additionally, improved advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), such as Turn Assist, will be available on Skoda's flagship model.
Skoda has revealed six engine options, including four-wheel drive models, for the 2017 Superb. The first engine in the petrol lineup will be a 1.5-litre mild hybrid turbocharged engine with 148 horsepower.
