The Czech brand’s flagship model is called the Superb.
Its 2019 facelift brought new technologies and more refinement to the 4.9m (6 ft) long car. The Superb is available either as a sedan or a station wagon and it is available with engines starting from a 1.6-liter turbodiesel up to a 2.0-liter gasoline-powered four-cylinder or a 1.4-liter PHEV.
On the outside, the 2019 Superb may be noticed by its full Matrix-LED Headlights installed as standard on the whole range. The front bumper has been extended for better aerodynamic integration and sleeker styling. For the top-version, called Laurin&Klement, Skoda installed new esthetic chromed details around the headlights, side sills, front and rear bumpers.
For the station wagon version, the Superb offers a much bigger trunk space. If the sedan can carry between 625 to 1760-liters (22-62 cu-ft), the two-box variant offers 660 to 1960-liters (23-69 cu-ft).
The base model has a 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine with 120 hp. Other engines are a 2.0-liter turbodiesel or turbo-gasoline with 150, 190 or 272 hp, respectively. The PHEV version has a 1.4 TSI (turbo-gasoline) engine and an electric motor with a combined power output of 218 hp and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The average fuel consumption for the plug-in hybrid under WLTP norms is 1.4 l/100 km (201.7 mpg-UK).
