Back in 2004, the first-gen Skoda Superb redefined our idea of a luxury sedan. Here was a car that could rival a Mercedes-Benz E-class on space and comfort, while costing half the price. The second-gen Superb that came to India in 2009 was no less a landmark model. Properly luxurious, crammed with tech and still priced sensibly, it took the market for executive luxury sedans by storm. Mind you, the second-gen Superb did so at a time when the segment was at its healthiest and competition was fierce.
The all-new third-gen Superb enters a very different market. With the bulk of rivals falling by the wayside (the Accord and Passat are yet to make a market comeback), competition for the Superb is restricted to the Toyota Camry. Not to say, Skoda is taking the market lightly. It’s been quick to bring the new model to India and has launched it with three engine-gearbox options. The Czech carmaker has also priced the latest Superb well – starting at Rs 23.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and topping off at Rs 30.85 lakh. Question is, does the latest Superb push the goal posts further like its predecessors once did? Our road test reveals all.
