The all-new fourth-generation Škoda Superb will be introduced this autumn, 90 years after the launch of the historic first model of the Superb range, produced between 1934 and 1949. Over 50 years later, the first generation of the modern Škoda Superb was released, marking the Škoda brand’s re-entry to the upper-mid-class.
Almost 137,000 first modern-generation Superbs were sold between 2001 and 2008, and it was the first Škoda model to introduce high tech features such as bi-xenon headlights, the automatic Tiptronic transmission and the Coming Home function. Right from the start, the first-generation Superb collected numerous prestigious awards, including “Best Import Car’” from the German “Auto Bild” car magazine.
The second generation appeared in 2008 and was the first to offer customers the choice of all-wheel drive. The Superb estate, introduced in 2009, sparked even greater demand. In total, the second-generation Superb recorded 618,000 deliveries to customers.
The third generation, introduced in February 2015, offered increased space for passengers and luggage in both body styles. It was also more economical, had lower emissions, and added innovative assistance systems for enhanced safety.
The flagship was again updated in 2019, with the Superb iV variant becoming the first Škoda plug-in hybrid model. So far, over 777,000 units of the third generation Superb have been delivered to customers.
