The Skoda Superb Scout has been confirmed as part of the car's refreshed range, which will debut on May 23, European time, in Bratislava as part of the World Ice Hockey Championships.

In a video posted to its Twitter feed, the Czech automaker teased further elements from the updated car's interior and exterior, including the range-topping Laurin & Klement trim line.

The Scout variant will likely feature raised suspension, all-wheel drive, and grey or brown plastic cladding on the bumpers, side sills and, possible, over the wheel arches.

Skoda has already confirmed the revised Superb will be available with full-LED matrix headlights, and scrolling LED indicators.

In Europe the Superb will also be available with a new plug-in hybrid drivetrain, expected to borrowed from Volkswagen Passat GTE update, which marries a 115kW 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with an 85kW electric motor to deliver a total of 160kW of power.


Speaking with CarAdvice, Skoda Australia's communications boss, Paul Pottinger, said the Scout version is currently off the cards for our market. Shame.

The local arm has previously confirmed the facelifted Superb will arrive Down Under during the third quarter of 2019.

It will feature carryover powertrains and the new addition of the MIB3 infotainment system, the latter indicating wireless Apple CarPlay should be available for the first time. Stay tuned for our coverage of the reveal on May 23.
