Skoda offers Superb in two trims- Sportline and Laurin & Klement with prices starting at Rs 32.85 lakh (ex-showroom)
Skoda India is currently getting ready to launch Slavia sedan, which will sit below the Octavia and above Rapid in company line-up. Apart from that, they will also be updating their flagship sedan in India with new features and interior themes.
The updates will be in line with the international-spec model sold in markets such as Europe and UK. The luxury sedan received a comprehensive facelift last year and is one of the very few D-segment sedans offered by a mass-market automaker in India.
In the latest bout of updates, Superb will be receiving new interior colour options along with a massage function for driver’s seat only. Many consumers had pointed at the time of its launch that a car at this segment of pricing should be offered with this feature. It seems Skoda has taken note of this grievance from the audience.
