The all-new Skoda Superb has been speculatively rendered possibly one last time ahead of this month's official reveal.

Larger and more spacious than the Volkswagen Passat B8 upon which is based, the new Superb will be aimed just like before towards those who put on emphasis on practicality rather than the more upscale finish offered by its German sibling which will remain significantly more expensive. Seen here is a digital interpretation based on the latest spy shots and with influences from the VisionC concept.

The speculative render shows a significantly more refined design compared to the outgoing Superb as well as an enlarged size since Skoda has already announced the length has increased by 20mm while wheelbase has been stretched by 80mm. Although bigger, the Czech flagship model will be up to 75 kg (165 lbs) lighter than the model it replaces and some of the shaved off weight will be possible by axing the dual opening of the trunk.

Under the skin it will essentially be a VW Passat so expect the same array of engines, gearboxes and FWD & AWD layouts. The interior has already been partially revealed by Skoda and just like the exterior, it doesn't stray away at all from current products launched under the Volkswagen umbrella.

For those who find the new Superb a bit on the dull side, Skoda has dropped a few hints about a potential sportier derivative which could come out later during the car's lifespan, but it won't be a vRS model.

Skoda has announced the overhauled Superb will be introduced mid-February.
