Skoda is making plans to launch Superb Sportline in India and has silently listed the premium sedan on its Indian website. The carmaker has yet not revealed details about the car, but as it is already launched in the European market, we have an idea of what to expect from the upcoming sedan. Check out what it might offer.
This car is the performance-based variant of the standard Superb, featuring cosmetic and mechanical updates. It might get 18 or 19-inch glossy black alloy wheels, additional black exterior design elements, ‘Sportline’ badging on front fenders and tinted rear side windows and rear windshield. In the interiors, the sportline has exclusive sports seats, leather sports steering wheel and a performance monitor function in the infotainment system and aluminum pedals
Other features that the car may offer include an electronic differential lock with enhanced XDS+ function and Driving Mode Select that allows the driver to choose the driver performance at the touch of a button. It might get adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), also the company has lowered the suspension of the Sportline Superb by 12nm to enhance the sporty character of the sedan.
For the engine, the Superb Sportline is likely to be powered by the same set of diesel and petrol engine as in European markets. In India, the Superb is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged motor that is available in two states of tunes. With a 7-speed DSG transmission, this engine makes 180PS and 250Nm, while with a 6-speed MT it generates 180PS and 320Nm. Having said that it might be possible that Skoda might offer a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine for Superb Sportline.
It is expected that the Skoda Superb Sportline might be launched at a slight premium price than the standard Superb, which is priced from INR 25.59 lakh to INR 32.99 lakh.
