2018 Skoda Superb India

2018 Skoda Superb gets beefed up infotainment display, Park Distance Control, Digital Voice Enhancement system and several others

The flagship model from Skoda will be getting a minor revision next year as some new features have been added to the existing equipment list. Now, the new infotainment system comes with a glass design. The same system is available in the Kodiaq and the Octavia facelift as the screen size has been increased from 6.5 inches to 8 inches in Bolero and Amundsen.

Meanwhile, the top-of-the-range Columbus will get it even more grown up as it has been increased to 9.2 inches. The base Swing infotainment system has seen the screen size go up from 5 to 6.5 inches diagonal. Another important addition will be the introduction of the Park Distance Control on the Superb sedan. It receives an extended Manoeuvre Assist function that can now detect obstacles at the front of the vehicle.

If the drive ignores the audio as well as visual warnings, the PDC will kick in and stops the car automatically by applying the brakes to reduce the impact possibility. Also included for the MY2018 version is the massage function for driver’s seat as an optional fitment. It will only be available in the range-topping trim with electrically adjustable ventilation and memory functions.

The Czech premium automaker has also added Digital Voice Enhancement system. It has a microphone mounted up front enabling the driver as well as co-passenger to communicate with people at the rear. Skoda also claims that the improved NVH levels have resulted in the cabin becoming quieter that before as there is acoustic film located in between the glass surfaces of the front side windows.

The roof can be ordered in black as well on the top-spec Laurin & Klement model. It gains chrome strips on side buffers and doors, set of 19-inch Acamar alloy wheels, alongside an upcoming new metallic paint job called Velvet Red. We do not know yet which of these features will be made available for India but the new touchscreen and safety tech are more than welcomed or they might wait till next year to bring out a mid-life refresh altogether.
