Škoda Superb range update includes new SportLine Plus trim
Škoda has added a new top-end SportLine Plus trim to the Superb as it also introduces equipment updates for the range.
Available to order now, the new SportLine Plus spec joins the existing SportLine version and brings extra equipment including the Columbus satellite navigation with 9.2-inch touchscreen display and integrated Wi-Fi, heated front seats, blind spot detection, electronically operated boot and progressive dynamic steering.
Offered with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines and the option of four-wheel drive and six-speed DSG automatic gearbox, the SportLine Plus is priced from £29,330 for the hatch version, and £30,645 for the Estate – a £1,500 premium compared to the latest SportLine model and representing a 40% saving over the individual option costs.
The launch of the new model comes as Škoda reduces the price of the standard SportLine model by £470, helped by replacing the previous higher-spec Columbus sat nav with the Amundsen eight-inch system. The range now starts from £27,830 OTR.
Škoda has also updated all Superb models, bar the entry-level S, with extra equipment. SE and SportLine models gain front and rear parking sensors, while SE L Executive models gain front and rear parking sensors, Blind spot detect, Keyless entry and a colour trip computer. Range-topping L&K models gain even more equipment with a heated multi-function steering wheel, ventilated seats and rear-view parking camera all added to the standard specification list. Pricing remains the same.
All updated Superb models are available to order now with deliveries of the new SportLine Plus model expected late June.
