Skoda has released the first official design sketch of the next generation Superb

Skoda has released the first official design sketch of the next generation Superb.

Following this week’s photos of camouflaged prototypes, we have the first colored sketch to share. Judging by the image, the new model will be highly influenced by the VisionC Concept and will feature a muscular hood and a prominent grille, surrounded by swept back headlights underlined by LED daytime running lights.

The “best Skoda ever”, as described by the company, will be positioned in the upper end of the automotive mid-class and will grow in size once again. The vehicle will be based on a stretched MQB platform and will be 75 kg (165 lbs) lighter than its predecessor.

Previous reports have suggested the base model with 1.4-liter petrol unit and 125 HP (92 kW) will be priced at around 25,000 EUR (31,200 USD) in Germany. The engine range will also include a 1.8 TSI with 260 HP (191 kW), as well as 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter diesel units with output from 120 HP (88 kW) to 190 HP (140 kW).

The new Skoda Superb will likely be fully revealed in February with ahead of a public launch during the Geneva Motor Show in March.
