New-gen Skoda Superb going to 2015 Geneva Motor Show image

The new generation of the Skoda Superb will be officially presented to the public next year, in March, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to a recent report, the flagship vehicle will be riding on the same platform as the new generation of the Passat and the styling will be created by a team led by head designer Jozef Kaban. The VisionC Concept will be used as an inspiration of the looks of the fourth generation of the Skoda Superb and the vehicle will be offered in the same liftback and wagon body styles, just like the current version.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the 2016 Skoda Superb will be coming with the 2.0 liter TDI unit, from the Passat, rated at 190 HP (140 kW) and with the 2.0 TSI with its 280 HP (206 kW), which will be replacing the 3.6 liter V6. The model will also get the 1.8 TSI with its 180 HP (132 kW) along with several other units borrowed from the Passat. Rumor has it that a plug-in hybrid will be offered too, with a 1.4 TSI unit backed up by an electric motor which will provide 211 HP (155 kW). AWD will be offered as an option. The new Superb will begin its sales in the second half of next year.
