According to Gaadiwaadi, the flagship Skoda Superb sedan is expected to launch on April 28 in India. The company updated the Superb model and launched in the international market. Skoda showcased the updated sedan at the 2020 Auto Expo, and will now make its way into the Indian market.

The Skoda Superb facelift model features a redesigned front grille, and new front bumpers with chrome accents. The upcoming luxury-sedan also features full-LED headlamps with Matrix technology, LED fog lamps, and a new alloy wheel design. There are no changes made to the sedan's rear design.

On the inside, the 2020 Skoda Superb features an upgraded touchscreen infotainment system, the company's Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, wireless charger and a host of additional features. It will continue to feature leather upholstery, a sunroof, steering mounted controls, and more as seen on the previous-gen BS4 models. The new Superb also gets safer with the inclusion of a 360-degree camera.

The Skoda Superb facelift will be powered by a single 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine. It produces 190bhp and 320Nm of torque, and comes mated to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The previous-gen model was powered by the 1.8-litre TSI petrol, and the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engines. Skoda has not updated both engines to meet BS6 emission standards and have not carried forward on the 2020 Superb.

Once launched the new Skoda Superb will rival the Toyota Camry in the Indian market. Earlier both cars were accompanied by the Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Passat, which are now discontinued in India.

With all the new changes, added features and an all-new powertrain, the 2020 Skoda Superb is expected to be priced slightly higher than the previous-gen model. We expect the price for new Skoda Superb to start at around Rs 27.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
