    Having launched the current Superb back in 2015, Skoda has now started testing a facelift for its range-topping sedan with a global debut likely sometime next year.

    The test mule spied is the estate derivative –­ Skoda’s Superb Combi ­– and featured minor changes to the front and rear of the sedan, along with revised headlamps and tail-lights. The headlights now feature LED units compared to the current cars Bi-Xenon projector units. The rear looks more or less unchanged, though the LED tail-lamps have been reprofiled. Other changes are likely to include new design alloy wheels.

    There are no details about the interior, though one could expect revised materials, a larger infotainment system and the addition of more tech.

    Under the hood, the Supeb facelift is expected to receive a new hybrid powertrain pairing a 156hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor with a 115hp electric motor. The powertrains currently on offer are expected to be carried forward.

    There is no news on when the facelift will come to India. With its rivals, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, featuring hybrid powertrains, Skoda could offer the Superb Hybrid in India to better compete in the segment.
