The Czech folks at Skoda officially announced that they’ve started production for the new-generation Superb. The company’s full-size sedan is certainly one of the key models in the portfolio, Skoda investing mover than $66 million in their Kvasiny plant, the facility where they produce the new model.
To be more specific, this amount of money went to the “Body Production” segment in order to accommodate the new model.
Speaking of the first Skoda Superb to roll off the assembly line, it is a higher-grade model with a Business Grey exterior finish. In the UK, the new Skoda Superb starts at £18,650 and is powered by a 1.4-liter TSI petrol unit producing 125 horsepower.
If you add larger alloy wheels, tri-zone climate control, a premium audio system and other more or less premium features, you can go all the way up to 28,740, the Laurin & Klement version that is.
In terms of availability, the new Czech model should go on sale this summer, at least the Sedan. There will be also an estate version which should also go on sale shortly.
