For those who want something even more Earth-friendly, there's the Superb iV that comes with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The battery pack is located under the floor and near the rear axle, which means a slight reduction in boot capacity - 485 litres for the sedan and 510 litres for the estate, compared to 625 and 660 for the non-hybrid versions, respectively. The electric motor gets its juice from a 13 kWh battery that can be charged using a standard plug socket or in 3.5 hours using a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kWh.
The auto is the first Skoda to get full-LED Matrix headlights (as an option) and new driver assistance features that include predictive cruise control.
Already applied to other Skoda models including the Fabia and Octavia wagons and the Karoq and Kodiaq SUVs, the Scout treatment turns the facelifted Superb wagon into an attractive all-rounder. Say hello to the oddly named Citigo iV, which largely carries over the design of the conventionally powered model but ditches the internal combustion engine (ICE) for a zero-emissions setup. The 1.6 TDI producing 118 bhp is fitted with a 7-speed DSG as standard. For the 2.0 TDI delivering 110 kW (150 PS) the power is transmitted by either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG. All three diesel engines are equipped with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection and a diesel particulate filter.
As reported, the Australian-market Superb line-up will continue with the same powertrains, including one diesel (140kW/400Nm 140TDI) and two petrols (162kW/350Nm 162TSI and 206kW/350Nm 206TSI), all of which are 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The all-LED Matrix headlights, and a few other assistance systems are making their debut in the production model of the new 2020 Skoda Superb. Below them, the slim LED fog lamps on the redesigned lower apron double as cornering lights. At the front, the Skoda Superb now comes with narrower, full LED Matrix headlights - a first for a Skoda. The vehicle also features new 18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, news trims are available for the dashboard, centre stack/console and doors, while contrast stitching is now found on the leather and Alcantara upholstery, which adorns the seats and armrests.
The Columbus infotainment system features a 9.2-inch touchscreen, gesture and voice control, a DVD player and a hard drive for music and videos.
The car's climate control system and battery status can be accessed remotely via new a smartphone app.
