Skoda is expanding the Superb's portfolio by adding a SportLine derivative available in both hatchback and wagon body styles.

At the beginning of the year, VAG-owned Skoda announced there won't be a hot vRS version of their new flagship Superb mid-size model but they did say a sporty version with cosmetic tweaks could happen. This is the car they were referring to and it will be available with all the engines, except for the base 1.4 TSI gasoline unit and the 1.6 TDI diesel.

As the model's name suggests, it gets a slightly sportier body complemented by new 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels and a lower suspension setup which brings the car closer to the road by 15 mm. Moreover, it has received standard tinted windows and new three-spoke steering wheel and gear knob wrapped around in leather. Those who will order the Superb SportLine will also be able to enjoy some other enhancements such as carbon-like trim elements, an aluminum pedal set and sport seats featuring an exclusive finish.

This new member of the Superb family will share the spotlight at IAA with the more economical GreenLine that promises to cover more than 1,780 km (1,106 miles) on a single tank of diesel.
