Skoda has previewed the upcoming 2020 Superb facelift once again, giving an early glimpse at the full LED lighting suite that will be available.
UPDATE, 14/5/19: Skoda Australia has released initial details for the updated Skoda range, see bottom of article for details.
Headlining the new light technology will be full-LED matrix headlights, a first for the Skoda brand. The flagship units consist of an LED module for the dipped and high beam, along with three more LED high beam segments.
An additional LED strip combines the indicators, daytime-running lights, and position lights. The new lights also have a turning on and off sequence for added drama.
The new full-LED tail-lights have updates of their own, too, including Audi-like scrolling indicators that offer both a "more dynamic appearance" and are "more noticeable for other road users".
Further details regarding the new Superb will come at the vehicle's reveal later this month – though Skoda hasn't set a definitive date.
Other upgrades include a brand-first plug-in hybrid option borrowed from the related Passat GTE, along with more sophisticated infotainment and driver assistance technologies.

Speaking with CarAdvice, Skoda's local public relations manager, Kurt McGuinness, said the Australian division is expecting the revised Superb range in the third quarter of 2019, just ahead of the revised Passat that should arrive in November/December.
"We expect to see the updated Superb in Q3 of this year, which will feature carryover powertrains and the new addition of the MIB3 infotainment system," he said.
That means we'll likely miss out on the new plug-in hybrid version that is due to launch as part of the facelifted range, while the new infotainment system should debut wireless Apple CarPlay for the Volkswagen Group in Australia.
Stay tuned for all the latest.
