New ŠKODA SportLine Plus offers even more desirability for updated SUPERB range

04/04/2018
ŠKODA is making the SUPERB an even more tempting proposition for buyers thanks to the introduction of a new SportLine Plus model and a raft of extra equipment for the SUPERB. The range expansion celebrates the incredible success of the SUPERB in the UK, and further distances ŠKODA’s award winning hatch and estate from the sector competition.

SPORTLINE PLUS

The new SportLine Plus model is priced from £29,330 OTR and has been added to the range to meet significant customer demand. Combining the striking design package of the standard SportLine model with a raft of additional equipment, it delivers even better value for money for customers. SportLine Plus models are equipped with Columbus satellite navigation with 9.2-inch touchscreen display and integrated Wi-Fi, heated front seats, blind spot detection, electronically operated boot and progressive dynamic steering.

Despite this impressive quantity of additional equipment, the SportLine Plus model only commands a £1,500 premium over the standard model – a 40 per cent saving over the individual option costs. Available to order from today (4 April), the SportLine Plus is priced at £29,330 for the hatch version, and £30,645 for the Estate.

A choice of three petrol and two diesel engines is offered, with the option of four-wheel drive and six-speed DSG automatic gearbox. The range-topping 2.0-litre TSI 280PS 4X4 can sprint from 0-62mph in just 5.8 seconds, while the 2.0-litre TDI 150PS emits just 113g/km, making it an attractive option for company car buyers.

Featuring 19-inch Anthracite Vega alloy wheels, sports design bumpers, sunset glass, and black gloss trim treatment on the grille, wing mirrors and window surrounds, the Hatch version has a rear black spoiler while the Estate has black gloss roof rails and a body-coloured spoiler.

The standard kit list also includes Bi-Xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, Drive Mode Select, dual-zone climate control, KESSY keyless entry and cruise control. A sports chassis lowers the car’s ride height by 15mm, and an XDS electronic differential lock ensures sharper handling.

Interior enhancements include a three-spoke Super Sport multifunction steering wheel with silver stitching, quilted Alcantara sports seats, LED ambient lighting, carbon dashboard trim, aluminium pedals and black headlining.

As part of the range update, the standard SportLine model has been reduced by £470 and its specification realigned to include the Amundsen 8-inch satellite navigation system in place of the Columbus system. This means that buyers can access the sporty looks of the SportLine for an even more affordable price.

SUPERB RANGE

It’s not just the sporty models that benefit from an update. All models except the entry-level S receive a boost in equipment at no additional cost. SE and SportLine models gain front and rear parking sensors, while SE L Executive models gain front and rear parking sensors, Blind spot detect, Keyless entry and a colour trip computer. Range-topping L&K models gain even more equipment with a heated multi-function steering wheel, ventilated seats and rear-view parking camera all added to the standard specification list.

All updated SUPERB models are available to order from 4 April 2018 with deliveries of the new SportLine Plus model expected late June.

Scala
Following on from the first silhouette images, ŠKODA reveals the name of its new model – the ŠKODA SCALA. The name derives from the Latin word ‘SCALA’ which means ‘stairs’ and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the ŠKODA name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the ŠKODA logo.
ŠKODA is releasing a silhouette picture to grant the public a first look at its future model for the popular compact class. It provides a first taste of the distinctive and dynamic design of this five-door model. This hatchback model translates the emotive design language of the study ŠKODA VISION RS, which recently attracted attention at the Paris Motor Show, into a production vehicle.

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with celebrity baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.

Good things come in small packages, and according to the experts at What Car?, there are no finer compact used car options than the ŠKODA CITIGO and FABIA. Both have been awarded top honours at the What Car? Used Car Awards 2019 – seeing off tough competition in the process.
With the ŠKODA VISION RS, the Czech brand combines its sporting tradition with a sustainable future. At the Paris Motor Show 2018 in October, the striking concept study – with its dynamic design language and efficient plug-in hybrid drive – will provide the first insights into the next evolutionary stage of ŠKODA’s sporty RS models and the design of a future compact vehicle. ŠKODA also demonstrates a high level of environmental awareness with the use of sustainably produced Vegan materials.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS is the Czech brand’s new, sporty, top-of-the-range model. In a week’s time, the high-performance SUV will celebrate its world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The latest addition to the Czech brand’s vRS family combines a generous and flexible space as well as ŠKODA-typical practicality with a sporty interior.
