Skoda Ireland has announced that a new Sportline trim level will be joining the Skoda Superb range. The Skoda Superb Sportline is about offering customers “sporty aesthetics combined with related sporty driving dynamics”.

On the outside the new Superb Sportline is distinguised by black side mirrors, window frames and side door strips, black front grille, tinted rear and side windows, 18″ ‘Zenith’ platinum alloy wheels, a glossy black diffusor and distinctive exhaust tailpipes.

The saloon also comes with a glossy black boot lip spoiler, and the Combi estate has a body-coloured roof spoiler and black roof rails.

Inside there is a black roof lining, ambient lighting with ten different colour options, and also aluminum pedals, alcantara/leather sports seats with silver stitching and an electrically-adjustable driver’s seat.

A sports chassis and suspension set-up  promises to improve the car’s driving dynamics and a driving mode selector offers a choice of Normal, Sport, Eco or Individual driving modes, which each change the behaviour of the engine, transmission, power steering and air conditioning based on the drivers preferences.

There’s a new colour option for the Skoda Superb Sportline: ‘Dragon Skin Yellow Metallic’.

The Superb Sportline is available with the 2.0-litre TDI with 150 or 190hp, and the 2.0-litre 280hp TSI. Manual and automatic gearboxes are available, and the option of 4×4.

The hatchback is priced from €37,495, which is €500 more than a Style model, and the Combi Sportline starts at €38,695.

Order books are now open with first deliveries expected in January 2017 for the 171 registration period.
