Skoda has released a couple of images depicting the interior cabin of their flagship Superb model.

The Superb is about to reach third generation after Skoda revived the name back in 2001 and the new model aims to combine "spaciousness, functionality and design in a truly unique way." Seen above is an image of the dashboard which is typical Skoda business but we do notice a larger touchscreen display while the climate controls and steering wheel look a lot like the ones on the smaller Octavia. Other features worth mentioning include an electric park brake, DSG gearbox, chocolate brown leather upholstery while the lower half of the dashboard and the door panels have a similar finish. The image could depict the range-topping Laurin & Klement version although Skoda usually launches the L&K version a while after the lesser models.

We already know the third-gen Superb will have an 80mm longer wheelbase while overall length has increased by 20mm, thus making it one of the biggest models in the mid-size segment. Despite the increased dimensions, weight will be down by as much as 75 kg (165 lbs) while trunk space has increased to 625 liters with the rear seats up and to 1,760 liters if you fold them down. Speaking of the trunk, the dual opening system has been removed because it was too complex and increased weight while the benefits were questionable.

Skoda will unveil the VW Passat B8-based Superb later this month, prior to a public debut set for early March at the Geneva Motor Show.
