While the Skoda Superb model is on the market for quite some time and dust began to settle on it, the Czech car manufacturer has decided to revive it with a facelift. So far not much is known about this upcoming model, but step by step we learn new details. It seems that the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe was not the only prototype out in the Alps, because the spy photographers spotted the first photos of the upcoming Skoda Superb facelift and we can show them to you.
As you can see in the photo gallery below, the Skoda Superb facelift made its appearance featuring new bumpers, front lights with led-daydriving lights and rear light with leds.
Despite de fact that the interior is already so good in the Superb today, we still expect the new model to come at least with some minor updates.
Is a bit too early to talk about powertrain, but we expect the new model to be offered with the same engine’s options as its predecessor. The 2011 Skoda Superb is offered as entry level with a diesel engine, the 1.6 TDI CR DPF that develops 77 kW (105 bhp) and 250 Nm at between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. Another option is the new 2.0 TDI CR DPF diesel engine, delivering 103 kW (140 bhp) and 320 Nm between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm, or a more powerful version of the 2.0 TDI CR DPF engine, delivering an impressive 125 kW (170 bhp) and maximum torque of 350 Nm between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.
The power is transferred to the wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Also a six-speed automatic DSG transmission is available as an option.
