- High-output AWD models confirmed

The 2021 Skoda Superb Sportline and Superb Scout models have been officially confirmed for the Australian market.
The Superb Sportline – which is offered in sedan and wagon configurations – has a 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder engine producing 206kW and 350Nm, while the Scout has a 200kW variant of the same powertrain, fitted with a petrol particulate filter.
Drive on both Skoda models is sent to all four wheels, however the Scout has improved rough-road capabilities owing to its boosted ride height.
The entry-level 162TSI four-cylinder petrol variant, available in both sedan and wagon, will follow in early 2021. Pricing and features will be announced separately.
Both Superb Scout and Sportline variants are fitted with Skoda's newest 'MIB III Columbus' infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility, wireless phone charging charging, Matrix LED headlights, and Skoda’s Virtual Cockpit digital display system as standard.
Additional newly added equipment includes keyless tailgate activation, animated rear indicators, predictive pedestrian protection, extended side assist blind spot detection (up to 70m) and a redesigned steering wheel. The Scout also gets a detachable towbar at the rear.
Skoda claims the equipment changes add $2400 worth of value to Sportline models and $2900 to the Scout.
The five-door 'sedan' variant of the Sportline is priced from $60,390 plus on road costs, while the wagon is $62,090 plus on road costs. The Scout starts at $61,990 plus on road costs.
From launch all three variants will be offered with drive-away pricing, starting at $62,990 for the 206TSI Sportline sedan, $63,990 for the 200TSI Scout, and $64,990 for the 206TSI Sportline wagon.
Drive-away pricing for the new Superbs steps up by $3000 for the sedan and $3300 for the wagon, comparing previous Sportline with the newest variant, but with no base trim in the new 206TSI line-up the effective base price climbs by $7700 and $8000 respectively. The Scout rises by $2000.
Metallic paint can be optioned for $770, as can a panoramic sunroof for $1900.
Alternative alloy wheel designs and upholstery trims can also be chosen.
Full specifications are yet to be announced for Australia, with the 206TSI Sportline and 200TSI Scout ranges on-sale from November 2020 with the complete Superb range expected during the first quarter of 2021.
