The 2020 Skoda Superb facelift made its global debut last year and gets cosmetic and feature enhancements over the outgoing model.

Inside, the cabin remains identical on the Skoda Superb facelift but it does come with the Virtual cockpit, three-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and MirrorLink. The Superb is also equipped with ambient lighting, a 12-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat with ventilation for the front row.

Under the hood, Skoda Auto India has decided to go petrol-only in the BS6 era, so the Superb facelift gets only the 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine shared with the Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace and has been tuned to develop 187 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with the 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
