In a bid to attract existing Skoda Rapid, Octavia, Volkswagen Vento and Jetta customers to upgrade to a Superb, Skoda has introduced a new entry-level Superb Corporate edition variant. Priced at Rs 23.49 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Superb Corporate edition is based on the Superb Style variant that comes with a 1.8-litre petrol engine good for 180hp. The sole gearbox on offer is a 6-speed manual. The Superb Corporate Edition is available in only a single “Candy white” paint shade.
The Superb Corporate edition gets the same set of equipment that is available on the Style variant. It gets beige leather seats, xenon headlamps, a panoramic sunroof and a powered driver’s seat, to name a few. The Skoda Superb Corporate is essentially a Superb Style variant in “Candy white” shade being sold at a discount of Rs 2.2 lakh. The Superb Style trim, which has other exterior shades on offer, is priced at Rs 25.59 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The company will sell this trim to existing VW group customers for now, with general buyers likely to be able to purchase this variant at a later stage.
Key rivals to the Skoda Superb include the Volkswagen Passat, the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord.
