The dashboard of the 2016 Skoda Superb has been revealed ahead of the all-new model’s debut at next month’s Geneva motor show.
The image confirms the revamped large car from the Czech arm of Volkswagen will bring with it a very VW-like cockpit treatment, with the interior closely mirroring that seen in the German maker’s Passat large car.
According to Skoda, the new Superb “combines spaciousness, functionality and design in a truly unique way”, with the interior designed to have a “more modern, elegant and sophisticated look”.
The new media system certainly achieves that, and it will bring functionality including acting as a reverse-view camera monitor (which is currently not available in the Superb), while other new technologies include a semi-automated parking system, electronic park brake and a drive mode selection system. The Superb doesn’t get the high-tech fully digital instrument cluster that is seen in the Passat, however.
Skoda has shown a front-end teaser image of the Superb as well as a rear-end shot, and the brand has repeatedly made mention of the Skoda VisionC concept which was uncovered at the 2014 Geneva show (pictured above).
Liftback and wagon versions will again be offered, both of which with more space for cargo and passengers alike. The new car is unlikely to be lengthier — it should measure close to 4800 millimetres long — but it will offer more shoulder space and could itself be broader.
Both vehicles share the same underpinnings, and are also expected to share technology and some engines, too. Expect a range of turbocharged drivetrains borrowed from the Volkswagen Group, including a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in several states of tune, as well as two diesel offerings – a base 1.6-litre and more grunty 2.0-litre.
