The new Skoda Superb is here! The world premiere of the car happened today at the Forum Karlín in Prague. The the new car displayed a revolutionized design, generous dimensions, innovative safety assistance systems, a focus on the environment and comfort. As a matter of fact the company claims that this is the best Skoda model ever produced. This is the third-generation Superb, which keeps the powerful characteristics of its predecessor, but also incorporates brand new design language inspired by the VisionC show car.

To go intro details, one of the major changes was in the wheelbase that has been increased by 80 mm. At the same time the front vehicle overhang is 61 mm shorter than before. The front features striking grille and distinctive headlights, the sides appear dynamic and elegant and are "supported" by large wheels.

At the back, the car features new two-part, broad and narrow taillights that incorporate LED technology. At the same time, crystalline elements provide the taillights with additional luminosity.

Inside, the cabin has been entirely redesigned with highlight on horizontal lines. This gives the already spacious interior an even more generous feel. Clear shapes, precise workmanship and the use of high-quality materials are all featured.

Furthermore, the new Superb is brand's first model offering adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) with Driving Mode Select. Auxiliary heating, heated seats, wireless heated windscreen and heated washer jets as well as rain/light sensor are some of the standard features.
