Not so long ago, the Superb 2018 was introduced in the new body. Skoda Superb is able to compete with famous rivals in the struggle for a wealthy buyer. After all, from certain times, business class sedans have ceased to be associated exclusively with German cars. Now such models as shoda superb are almost an example of the correct approach to spending money – an excellent choice for the ratio of price / quality factors. For the sake of justice, it is worth noting that, in fact, the new school Supreb 2018 still has German roots. So, the Czech brand itself belongs to the German concern VAG, which also owns Audi and Volkswagen. So many innovations migrated from there. But at the same time the machine is not devoid of original style and its own uniqueness.
Presentable sedans are characterized by the fact that they are represented by a combination of the most modern technologies. Almost every automaker has to produce a representative of this class. The new offer of Shkoda Superb 2018-2019 in the new body (photo, price and technical characteristics see in this article) of the third generation was presented to the world public in 2015. The design of the car retained its trademark features, in addition, the line was significantly expanded. The minimum equipment is represented by the most necessary options, the offer price is $20 000.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN
Today, the third generation of the mid-sized sedan is already being manufactured, which began its history in the distant 2001, but still enjoys stable demand. Changes affected almost all areas. So, the Skoda Superb 2018 received a modified exterior. Now the silhouette has become even more tight and faceted. Spectacular LED headlights, stylish radiator grille, new front bumper. Appearance underwent point changes, and this did not go to the detriment of the whole image.
And from the rear, the sight is surrounded by spectacular wedge-shaped stop lamps and an inverse rear bumper. In this case, the main difference between the new superb school of 2018 is in the back. So, in a new body the car has ceased to be completed with a two-step lid of a luggage carrier, having turned to a standard liftback. This helped to lower the price slightly. However, the main reason for the return to the classic layout according to marketers was the unclaimedness of this option among the owners.
The updated fashionable exterior of the novelty differs clearly outlined, smooth lines in a combination with sharp corners and lightning stroke stitches. The front part is almost completely covered with straight edges with sharp edges. Head optics, made in the same style, looks strictly and aggressively. To design headlights Czech designers did not spare even the Bohemian crystal.
The Superb offer was also updated with a new red Velvet Red and 19-inch Acamar wheels. For the Laurin & Klement version, a black roof will be available. The edition of L & K will be more prominent thanks to the gentle, chrome accents, which should emphasize the prestigious character of the Skoda Superb 2018 model year.
The car became more presentable.
The restrained style in the back made it more aggressive due to the extra facets.
Serious changes undergone the back.
The sedan looks modern and stylish.
The salon of the superb school of the 2018th model year has not undergone any significant changes (see photo of the salon). Updates touched the steering wheel, dashboard, cockpit. However, an inexperienced motorist at a cursory examination can not reveal the cardinal differences. However, the best is the enemy of the good. And it’s not always worth changing anything if it works perfectly. And in terms of ergonomics or internal comfort, it is really difficult to blame the superb school. Perfectly profiled seats, where you can sit comfortably to the driver of almost any equipment, informative and easily readable instrument panel, excellent overview. To all it is necessary to add enough spacious back seats and a luggage carrier of considerable sizes. And for those who need a bigger luggage space, there is a universal supermarket superb 2018, which has a truly impressive compartment for cargo transportation.
The most important novelty is a new multimedia system with a large touch screen. In the top version now has a 9.2-inch screen (previously there were 8). Just like in the Octavia, they abandoned the classic buttons and pens that were replaced by the touch panel. The new system can offer applications from the ConnectApp package, extensive integration with the smart phone SmartLink + and improved speech recognition. The screen is also enlarged in cheaper versions: from 5 to 6.5 inches and from 6.5 to 8 inches (depending on the equipment).
The design of the interior is very simple:
Three-knuckled steering wheel.
In the central part is a large display.
Several knobs and blocks with different keys.
At furnish various materials are applied: from textiles to a qualitative natural leather.
The line of engines will be presented by five modern gasoline turbo units equipped with a direct fuel injection system. To ensure the decent technical characteristics of the new Skoda Superb model in 2018, the manufacturer chose three gearboxes: 6-speed non-alternative “mechanics”, 6-band “automatic”, 7-band “robot”. It is obvious that the creators finally managed to significantly reduce fuel consumption. In addition, the dynamic qualities of the car, on the contrary, increased significantly. More information about this you can learn from the video test drive of the new version of Skoda Superb 2018. I was very pleased with the fact that the reliability, endurance of the car became much higher. In equipping all the modifications of the elevator, there are ABS systems, driving stability, and on all wheels there are disc ventilated brakes.
Features we will name:
The increased dimensions of the body.
The rigidity of the body was increased by 15%.
