Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic automotive brands are moving towards digital medium for sale and purchase of vehicles for the Indian customers. Skoda Auto India is the latest one to announce online bookings. The epidemic had pushed forward the launch date of Skoda Superb Facelift. Now, customers can now book the New Skoda Superb on the Skoda Auto India's official website by paying an amount of Rs 50,000.
As of now, only Skoda Superb Facelift bookings have been opened but there is also hope of Karoq and Rapid TSI bookings to start soon. The 2020 Superb Facelift sedan will be offered in two variants: Laurin & Klement (L&K) and Sportline. Skoda Superb Facelift will be priced slightly higher than the BS4 Skoda Superb which had a price tag of Rs 26 lakhs (ex-showroom), India.
Skoda Superb Facelift was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020 with the expectations of launch by mid-2020. Superb facelift will be powered by a BS6 compliant petrol engine. The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine will generate 188 bhp of maximum power output and 320Nm of peak torque coupled to 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Czech Automobile manufacturer has discontinued the diesel engine which was offered with the outgoing Superb. Skoda intends to focus on petrol and mild-hybrid engines which could be the reason for doing away with the diesel engine in New Skoda Superb.
