Skoda Superb will continue to exist after its current generation, as does the German brother VW Passat. Both models will share the production line at the renovated VAG (Volkswagen Audi Group) plant in Bratislava, Slovakia. The Superb will no longer be produced in Kvasiny, Czech Republic, while the Passat will lose its "Made in Germany" label.
Skoda's exterior design coordinator Petr Matushinets already spoke about the design of the new Superb by the end of last year, hinting at an evolutionary approach rather than a dramatic new look. The company's flagship is likely to grow in size, given that the latest Octavia is now ever bigger than previous editions. The Superb will once again receive liftback and station wagon versions, while the Passat is expected to become an all-round station wagon.
Our counterparts at the Russian site Kolesa.ru have prepared computer images that suggest what the new Superb may look like. Obviously, the design is strongly influenced by the current generation Octavia, which should not be considered a surprise.
In the images below you can see official sketches of the new Superb, which Skoda has distributed in order to hint at the design.
Auto Trendy’s take:
The suggested exterior design of the new Skoda Superb – especially details of the front/rear lights and the wheel rims – predicts a futuristic look typical for hybrid and electric vehicles. In the current moment, we can only make guesses in this direction. However, we, at Auto Trendy, do believe that any VAG sub-company is well-oriented on the road to electrification under one form or another.
