Skoda reveals Superb prices

The new Superb will feature more technology and levels of luxury than its predecessor, Skoda claimed while unveiling prices.

The new Superb's entry price is £18,640 - though the model will sell for almost £34,000 at the top of the range.

The Czech manufacturer will produce S, SE, SE L Executive and Laurin & Klement trim grades and the engines that will be paired with them.

The S models come with 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, leather contact points, DAB radio and a five-inch touch screen. It also has engine stop-start and Skoda's latest safety suite.

Meanwhile at the top of the scale, Laurin & Klement cars will cost from £28,740 and come with extras such as keyless entry, automated parking, a 10-speaker Canton sound system, heated windscreen, tri-zone climate control and blind spot detection. It even features a TV tuner allowing passengers to watch live TV while on the road.

The car is 28mm longer and 47mm wider than the previous version, measuring 4.86m by 1.86m. The new car offers a roomier ride for rear passengers thanks to its wheelbase, which is 80mm longer.

Skoda says size, safety and technology increases versus the previous car, while the new model is as much as 75kg lighter depending on model variants.

Certain models have four-wheel drive as an option, while there will also be an estate body style across all trim grades.
