Superb Sportline returns to Skoda line-up

WLTP-enforced absence over as Skoda Superb Sportline, Scout re-join range

8 Oct 2020

SKODA has re-introduced the Sportline variant to its Superb large sedan and wagon line-up, following a forced absence due to WLTP-related production restrictions, with the new range-topping variant checking in at $60,390 plus on-road costs for the sedan.


The wagon meanwhile asks $62,090, with both grades increasing their RRP by $3100 in exchange for what the brand describes as $3400 worth of extra standard equipment.


According to Skoda, the Superb Sportline gains a raft of new features including matrix LED headlights, dynamic rear indicators, rear-door keyless entry and start, Skoda welcome logo, predictive pedestrian detection, Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, Columbus infotainment system, new steering wheel, wireless Apple CarPlay and phone charging, and extended side assist.


No changes have been made to the Superb Sportline’s engine, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine developing 206kW/350Nm, driving all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.


Along with the re-introduction of the Sportline, Skoda has also announced the soft-road wagon Superb Scout variant will be returning in 2021, having originally planned to be offered as a limited-edition grade.


The Scout is distinguished from the outside by its 15mm-taller ride height and black cladding around the bumpers, skirts and wheelarches, and asks $61,990, representing an increase of $2500.


Like the Sportline, Skoda Australia says it has added $2900 of extra value to the Scout to offset the price increase, with new equipment including a three-spoke, flat-bottom sports steering wheel, Columbus infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and a detachable towbar.


The Scout features a braked towing capacity of 2200kg.


It is powered by the same engine as the Sportline, however the fitment of a petrol particulate filter reduces peak power slightly to 200kW.


Options for the two new models include a panoramic sunroof for $1900 and metallic paint for $770, while different alloy wheel and upholstery options can be chosen.


The more affordable 162TSI sedan and wagon grades will also be reintroduced in the first quarter of next year, with pricing and spec to be announced soon.


With its reduced stock levels in Australia, Skoda has only managed to sell 184 examples of the Superb to the end of September 2020, marking a 75.2 per cent reduction over the 743 managed to the same point in 2019.


Overall Skoda sales in 2020 have taken a 13.7 per cent hit with 4534 units, less than the overall market downturn of 20.5 per cent.
