The clean, straightforward design of the Skoda Superb 2019 Facelift is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

Starting with the face, you’d note that the grille is now wider and larger. Dunked in chrome, the grille makes the Superb’s face look statelier. The headlamps aren’t as sleek and sharp as they used to be. It now has a rounded rectangular-ish shape that we’ve seen on the Karoq. But much like the current Superb, there’s a kink at the end. It’s interesting to note that the Superb facelift will get an LED-projector headlamp setup as opposed to the current bi-xenons. READ ~ Toyota Hiace 2020 First Drive
From the side, there’s practically no give that the car is new in any way. There are new alloy wheel designs here, but nothing much else. Over to the rear, the revised bumper gets our attention immediately. There’s a matte black insert that helps cut the visual bulk, with reflectors placed smartly on top. On the boot, we see the new ‘S K O D A’ badging instead of the insignia, something we first saw on the Skoda Scala. The tail lamps too are now sharper and are expected to feature dynamic turn indicator. Finally, there’s a chrome strip that connects the tail lamps, making the rear appear wider.
There’s no glimpse into the interior yet. But we don’t expect a major change here. For India, the Superb facelift is likely to feature the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit all-digital instrument cluster. Notably, both the Octavia and the Kodiaq now sport this feature. Skoda could play around with the interior trims to make it look fresher. Don’t expect any difference in terms of space or boot space, though.

Skoda India might launch the Superb facelift in India by the end of this year. Since changes are mostly cosmetic, we’re expecting prices to remain relatively unchanged at Rs 25 lakh to Rs 33.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
The best value in Skoda Superb 2019 Facelift is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
