Skoda India has silently discontinued the Ambition trim from the Superb lineup. Now, the saloon is only available in the top-spec Elegance trim. The company launched the Superb facelift on February 10, 2014 in the country at a starting price of Rs. 18.87 lakh (Ambition 1.8 TSI MT). Now, the Elegance 1.8 MT TSI is the entry level variant which is priced at Rs. 20.91 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The other two variants- the Elegance TSI AT and Elegance TDI AT tagged at Rs. 22.48 lakh and Rs. 25.39 lakh, respectively.
The Superb facelift was launched in five variants out of which, 2 variants belong to Ambition trim and rest to Elegance. The vehicle continues to be offered in both petrol and diesel fuel options. Its gasoline model is propelled by a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol unit that is good for 158bhp and 250Nm of torque. The oil burner is the 2.0-litre turbodiesel motor that produces 138bhp and 320Nm of top torque. It is currently the top selling car in its league with 100 units sold each month on an average. It comes as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kit, and is assembled at the company’s Aurangabad assembly.
The new Skoda Superb features an all-new “butterfly” grille that accommodates the new two-tone Skoda logo. The grille is complemented by bi-xenon headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lamps. The top-end variant is equipped with power washers and C-shaped strip of seven LED segments on the front turn indicators.
