The redesign for the Skoda Superb, which was first introduced in 2008, is now being introduced into dealerships across the Czech republic and will soon hit the rest of Europe.

The most noticeable change fro the Superb is the grille, which now looks cleaner and no longer has a large chrome strip over the top. The flagship sedan and wagon also receive slightly redesigned headlamps, restyled bumpers, new grille, hood and fog lights. At the rear, the car gained reinterpreted tail lights, "to further emphasize the brand's typical C-shape", with three LED-striped graphic.

In addition, two new exterior colors (Metal Grey and Moon White) and 16 to 18-inch alloy wheels have been added. The engines remain largely the same, but they now have standard start/stop, which is said to have increased fuel economy by 19% across the board.

“We have once again achieved a success in production engineering,” says Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA Board Member for production and logistics. He continues, “The whole team from production, planning, tool construction and logistics have done a fantastic job coming together to work on the fourth start of production this year alone.”
