The Skoda Superb has been updated for 2019

An updated ŠKODA Superb has arrived in Ireland, priced from €30,750. Available as a Combi Estate (from €32,250) or Saloon, the new 2019 Superb gets revised styling, updated interior and new features.

The Superb is one of Ireland’s favourite cars and over 18,000 of them have found homes in Ireland since it arrived here back in 2002.

The latest generation of the ŠKODA Superb arrived in Ireland in 2015 and is the most successful version of the car to date.

ŠKODA has slightly modified the exterior of the Superb for the 2019 update and refined the front section. The redesigned front bumper means the car’s length has increased by up to 8 mm. The typical ŠKODA grille is now larger with double slats and protrudes a little further down into the front bumper. The headlights are narrower and come with LED technology as standard for the dipped and high beam. At the rear, a horizontal chrome trim
connects the full LED tail lights, with ‘ŠKODA’ spelt out for the first time in block lettering.

The Superb continues to set benchmarks for spaciousness in the segment with up to 625 litres of boot space.

There is a range of petrol and diesel engines with a plug-in hybrid on the way in 2020. The range kicks off with a 1.5-litre TSI petrol producing 150 bhp. It’s offered with a 6 speed manual or 7 speed DSG automatic transmission. The 2.0 TDI 150 bhp diesel has been heavily revised. There’s also a 1.6-litre TDI diesel with 120 bhp and a more powerful 2.0 TDI with 190 bhp. Diesels are available from €33,325.

Several new assistance systems are also making their debut, such as Predictive Cruise Control.

The new Superb will be available in five trim lines: Active, Ambition, Style, SportLine and L&K.

The Superb SportLine has a remodelled black radiator grille, black 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED Matrix headlights and a sports chassis, which has been lowered by 10 mm. Inside there are sport seats with Alcantara®/leather.

The top trim level, Laurin & Klement ‘L&K’ has chrome trim on the grille, side sills and rear bumper.

Speaking at the launch of the new ŠKODA Superb, Ray Leddy, Head of Marketing & Product at ŠKODA Ireland, said: “The SUPERB has been such an important model in our brand’s evolution in Ireland. The current and third iteration of the Superb has been a contender for the number one position in the segment with the Superb overtaking many of the traditional bestsellers. Thanks to its reliability and excellent residual values, the Superb has been a major success with business and fleet customers, with 23% of Superb sales being attributed to this channel.”
