Skoda to target fleet drivers with new Superb SE Business trim
Based on the SE trim, the SE Business specification adds extra equipment at no cost for company car drivers.
Features include Alcantara upholstery; front and rear parking sensors and sunset glass from the B-pillar back cool. In addition, the Amundsen touchscreen satellite navigation system is included as standard, with a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen and Bluetooth telephone integration, as well as SmartLink (which integrates mobile phone functions via Apple CarPlay, MirrorLink and Google Android Auto). Also featured is Drive mode selection, which enables drivers to choose between Eco, Sport or Normal driving profiles.
This will be augmented from mid-2016 with the ‘Phone Box’ compartment which offers wireless charging and an enhanced mobile signal.
This is in addition to standard SE features such as 17-inch alloy wheels; dual-zone air conditioning; lumbar support, cornering front fog lights; electrically folding door mirrors; Front Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The trim level will be available with two diesel engines from launch: a 1.6-litre 118bhp unit and a 2.0-litre 147bhp motor. DSG transmissions are available on both. A GreenLine model, which is expected to return 76.4mpg combined and emit just 95g/km of CO2, will join the line-up in due course.
Prices start at £21,590 for the 1.6-litre 118bhp model and rise to £23,490 for the 2.0 TDI 147bhp DSG.
First deliveries of the new Superb are expected September 2015.
