The fourth generation of the Skoda Superb is scheduled to appear in 2023 of course again as a station wagon and sedan, which have the dimensions of a luxury class. The interior and trunk volume remain correspondingly generous. Engines include mild and plug-in hybrids.
What’s next for the Skoda Superb family and company car? The stately 4.87 meter long Czech is already in the upper class with its dimensions, but remains significantly undercut in price. The brand intends to stick to this strategy when the next Superb is presented in autumn 2023. The interior and trunk volume is correspondingly generous. The market launch is planned for early 2024.
Interesting: The new Superb starts as a station wagon, the sedan follows a few months later. With the new edition, Skoda is also changing the production site. Instead of in the Kvasiny (Czech Republic) plant, the Skoda Superb (2023) will roll off the assembly line in Bratislava (Slovakia) by the way, side by side with the new VW Passat. The move is intended to free up much-needed capacity in Kvasiny for around 150,000 additional Skoda units per year.
Superb 2023 station wagon & sedan
The fourth generation of Skoda Superb (2023) is based on the well-known, constantly evolving VW modular system (MQB) and is powered as before by proven combustion engines. A purely electric variant is not planned, but a plug-in hybrid in which a small electric motor works together with a 1.4 or 1.5 liter four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. Both petrol engines have long been part of the Group’s engine range.
The fact that the tax brackets in some important markets are below the higher tax bracket speaks in favor of the continued use of the lower-capacity petrol engines this combination can currently be found in many models from the VW Golf to the Superb. In the current Superb, the plug-in hybrid has 218 hp and a purely electric drive of up to 55 kilometers as technical data. In addition to the “plug hybrid”, Skoda is planning a mild hybrid variant with 48-volt technology.
Comprehensive hybridization is not planned because price-sensitive customers would probably not follow suit. The classic petrol engines 1.5 TSI (150 PS) and 2.0 TSI (190 and 280 PS) remain in the Skoda Superb (2023) range. The 2.0-liter turbo petrol engine, referred to internally as the “world engine”, is of particular importance because it can also be used in regions with poor fuel quality. The important question of trailer load cannot be answered so early.
Skoda Superb 2023 Dimensions & Interior
One of the most important innovations is the streamlining of the product range. Since more and more all-electric models with independent bodies are planned in the future, Skoda wants to reduce the complexity and thus the costs of the traditional series this also applies to the Skoda Superb (2023). A look at the costs is also important to the new Skoda boss Thomas Schäfer so that he can keep the relatively popular prices of the brand, which like everyone else has to invest a lot of money in electrification.

In the future, more equipment packages and fewer equipment lines should convince more demanding customers. There is a question mark behind the traditional but little-demanded line “Scout” and the number of possible combinations of engines and transmissions is adjusted to the market offer. A particularly attractively priced entry-level variant below the current basic “Active” equipment is planned. The popular “Sportline” will also definitely be available in the future.
When designing the interior, the creative team led by Skoda design chief Oliver Stefani struck a balance between the tried and tested operating logic of the current Superb and that of the new Enyaq e-model. This includes a seemingly free-floating display on the center console. Instead of error-causing buttons or swiping, three easy-to-reach rotary knobs control the most important functions. And the price of the Skoda Superb (2023)? Well, it should build on the existing model, which is available as a sedan from 29,270 euros and as a station wagon from 30,270 euros (as of June 2021).
