Skoda plans sportier version of the new Superb image

A sportier version of the new-gen Skoda Superb is currently being considered by the Czech based automaker but the model will not be wearing the RS badge on its body.

The 2016 Skoda Superb has been teased and spied numerous times but it still has one ace up its sleeves, a sportier version. According to a recent report, the model in question is very close to seeing daylight but as you probably will not expect, it won’t wear the RS badges on its body.

“We are thinking of making a ‘Sport’ model. I am not saying a Sport line (RS), but let’s say at least a sporty look”, said Winfriend Vahland, the Skoda CEO. “When we discuss the RS, people do not automatically want more horsepower, they like the price and they like the value, but we have more wishes for 4×4 on the RS than for higher power”, he added.

A possible Skoda Superb RS would stand in the 50,000 euro range so the company’s customers will probably not buy it, because the range of vehicles in that price zone is very high. The carmaker wants to keep the new sporty vehicle in the 40,000 euro zone, with a “sporty package”, diesel engines and the Combi body style. More details on this model are limited for the moment but keep an eye for it at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in March, where the regular version is expected to be unveiled, and Skoda might pull a surprise on us and introduce this variant too.
