2015 Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: 2016 Skoda Superb Combi Sportline image

The Czech automaker has been growing steadily under the patronage of the VW Group, currently the largest automaker in the world after the first six months of the year. Among the novelties at the 2015 IAA Frankfurt motor show we also found the Superb Combi SportLine.

The automaker decided to publicly introduce the Superb Combi SportLine alongside its other contenders – the regular Superb Combi, Superb GreenLine, Rapid MonteCarlo and Spaceback Scout – in front of the worldwide audience during the German auto event. The model in question has been described as a “particularly sporty version” of the regular, family dwelling Superb Combi – with the line featuring subtle exterior enhancements. We have black accents, privacy windows at the back and a choice of 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels complete with the aforementioned black finish. The Superb Combi SportLine will also come with a revised suspension tuned for sporty feeling and coming with a reduced ride height by 15mm (0.6 inches).

The interior has also been taken into account, boasting sport seats, aluminum pedals and a leather sports steering wheel alongside other minor adjustments. The engine choice brings nothing new to the equation, with the SportLine being available with every petrol or diesel powerplant save for the respective entry-level options – the 1.4 TSI and 1.6 TDI units. The regular Superb saloon has been available since June and the Combi station wagon variant will hit dealerships across certain markets as soon as this month, in a bid to establish its flagship role in the Skoda range.
