Skoda superb 2016 (3rd gen)


  • There’s a lot that it borrows from the other Skoda, the Octavia, and this is visible in the way it looks. But the biggest change that we’ve seen in the car is its shape.
  • The 3rd gen of the Superb gets a more Coupe-ish C-pillar, which brings it in line and makes it look proportionate.)the boot has been stretched by a couple of millimeters
  • This translates into an even more spacious cabin and a longer wheelbase. The B-pillars are also sleeker and create a larger glass house.
  • The headlights and taillights are a fine detailed example, right from their crystal elements to the decorative cuts on the glass or the ‘invisible’ bonnet, which simply merges with the front grille and is camouflaged with the shoulder line on the sides.


  • At the heart of the Superb is a 1.8-litre TSI petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel engine.
  • Comes with a ‘smart’ differential for the front wheels, the softness of the suspension doesn’t really make it stand out.
  • ‘Made-for-Indian-roads’ version, the ride quality is absolutely sublime.
  • The petrol version is made available with both the manual and the 7-speed DSG while the diesel is only available with a DSG box.(The DSG is one such gearbox that puts the fun in driving an automatic. )
  • While the 4 cylinders murmur in such conditions, they start to sing when you put your foot down.


  • It comes loaded to the brim with is features like bi-xenon headlamps,
  • electronic stability control,
  • a panoramic sunroof (now without a rotary knob)
  • 12-way electric adjust driver seat,
