Skoda Superb Makes a Grand Comeback to India on April 3rd

   Apr 01,2024

Call all sedan lovers! Mark the calendar date of April 3rd, 2024, because the iconic Skoda Superb is making a comeback to India. This news comes after Skoda first announced plans for the relaunch of the Superb back in September 2023.


Second Generation Returns with Twist.

This time around, however, the Superb will be making a comeback with a twist. The new Superb will be imported to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) under the government's GSR 870 rule. This allows manufacturers to import a limited number of vehicles (2,500 units annually) without needing excessive homologation.

Top-Spec Features and a Mighty Engine

Although it is the previous generation Superb, Indian car buyers can still look forward to a lavish experience. The car will be loaded with the top spec Laurin & Klement trim, which brings along advanced features including lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control that works to the tune of 210 km/h. And parking will be a breeze too, thanks to the park assist system along with a 360-degree camera.

As for power, the Skoda Superb will stick to its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque. This engine, compliant with the latest BS6 Phase II emission norms, is associated with a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox and transfers the power to the front wheels. Expect that acceleration will remain impressive, speeding from 0-100 km/h in 7.8 seconds.

Price Hike Expected

Previously, the Skoda Superb was available in India at a price range of Rs 34.19 lakh to Rs 37.29 lakh. However, given its CBU status, the new Superb is expected to come with a significant price hike. Industry estimates suggest the starting price could be around Rs 43 lakh. This will position the Superb as a competitor to the Toyota Camry, now priced at Rs 46.17 lakh.

The Future of Skoda Sedans in India

That becomes a considerable step by Skoda towards the Indian market. The company is also planning to reintroduce the Octavia nameplate with the arrival of the new-generation model, also imported as a CBU. This renewed focus on sedans shows confidence in the market segment and the brand's pledge to give Indian buyers multiple premium car options.
