Skoda has quietly announced the next generation Superb flagship model will be fully revealed on February 17.

VW-owned Skoda previously disclosed plans to show the new Superb by mid-February and after we checked the event calendar on their official website we found out the model will be unveiled on February 17, prior to a public debut at the Geneva Motor Show early next month. Bigger yet lighter than the outgoing model, the new Superb promises to be the "best Skoda ever" with a design inspired by the VisionC concept and the platform of the Volkswagen Passat B8.

Numerous spy shots, teasers and preview images have revealed many styling details for the new Superb which will come without the dual-opening trunk system of its predecessor. This has enabled Skoda's engineers to create a sleeker rear end where the cargo capacity will be boosted to 625 liters with the rear seats up and 1,760 liters after folding them down. We remind you the design of the headlights & taillights was revealed towards the end of last year thanks to a leaked internal document.

An extra 80mm in the wheelbase will increase rear passenger legroom which will likely be one of the best in the mid-size segment. The interior has been partially revealed in a recent image published by Skoda, showing basically a more upscale fit and finish derived from the smaller Octavia's cabin.

Since it's based on the new Passat, expect the 2015 Superb to come with just about the same array of engines and there could also be a sporty version, but if green-lighted for production it won't wear the vRS badge.
