Skoda has cranked up the desirability of the Superb by introducing a new gadget-laden variant.

Priced at £29,330/£30,645 (hatch/estate), the Sportline Plus grade has been added to the Superb range, due to high customer demand and delivers even better value for money than before.

Features include the new trim include a top-line 9.2-inch touchscreen Columbus sat-nav, integrated Wi-Fi, heated front seats, blind spot detection, electronically operated boot and progressive dynamic steering.

Despite all this extra kit, the SportLine Plus model only commands a £1,500 premium over the standard model, representing a 40 per cent saving when priced up individually.

Impressive as standard

The standard equipment list is likely to impress company car buyers regardless, with every Superb riding on 19-inch Anthracite Vega alloy wheels and boasting 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 comes with black gloss roof rails and a body-coloured spoiler.

Bi-xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and cruise control all come as standard too.

The engine range mirrors that of the rest of the Superb line-up, consisting of three petrol and two diesel engines, with the option of four-wheel drive and six-speed DSG automatic gearbox.

Topping the engine line-up is the two-litre TSI 276bhp 4×4, capable of clearing a 0-62mph sprint in just 5.8 seconds, while the two-litre TDI 147bhp emits just 113g/km, making it a tempting company cruiser.

Ben Robb, brand manager at The Fuelcard People, comments: “The Skoda Superb was already a very attractive fixture in the company car market and this new trim makes only serves to strengthen its appeal.”
