Skoda has released a second sketch of its next-generation Superb flagship sedan, ahead of its scheduled debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March next year.
While the first sketch (below) released last week showed the front end of the Superb, this second teaser gives a glimpse of the sedan’s rear end. The Czech car maker describes the design of the new flagship model as “sophisticated, elegant, dynamic, discrete, modern and expressive”.
The new model appears to be inspired by the VisionC Concept and gets the company’s new corporate grille with its badge sitting on top on the bonnet. Its profile also appears to be relatively streamline, suggesting it may get the coupé look.
According to Skoda, the new model will be the best Skoda ever. It will be bigger than the current model yet weighing 75kg lighter thanks to Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform on which it is based.
Skoda hopes the new Superb will attract new customer groups to its brand. It will be positioned in the upper end of the automotive mid-class.
Under the bonnet, a range of petrol and diesel engines will be offered, including a base 1.4-litre petrol unit with 92kW (125 hp), a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol with 191kW (260 hp), as well as a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engines delivering 88kW (120 hp) and 140kW (190 hp).
