Skoda announces SE Business trim for Superb

  • New exclusive trim for business users
  • More equipment added at no extra cost
  • Sat-nav and Alcantara seats included as standard

Just weeks after its first full public unveil at the Geneva Motor Show, Skoda has announced a new trim for its flagship car, the Superb.

The new SE Business trim is tailored exclusively for company car drivers and adds a variety of must-have equipment at no extra cost over SE models.

Additional equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, more luxurious Alcantara seats, sat-nav, Bluetooth and a SmartLink system which integrates mobile phone functions via Apple CarPlay, MirrorLink and Google Android Auto. There will also be a drive mode selector which enables drivers to choose between Eco, Sport or Normal driving profiles.

As on the SE, SE Business models also come with 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone air-con, lumbar support, front cornering lights, electrically folding door mirrors and adaptive cruise control.

Around 70 percent of outgoing Superbs are sold to business users; Skoda expects the SE Business trim to help boost sales even further.

The new Superb is 28mm longer and 47mm wider than its predecessor, while the 2,841mm wheelbase is 80mm longer, allowing for greater space inside for passengers while boot space has also increased by 30 litres now offering 625 litres, expanding to a 1,760 litres with the rear seatbacks folded.

Despite this increased in size, the new Superb is up to 75kg lighter than its predecessor which has helped to improve efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.

Two EU6-compliant diesel engines are available from launch: a 1.6-litre 118bhp powertrain and a 2-litre 147bhp option with DSG automatic transmission available on both. A GreenLine model, which is expected to return 76.4mpg combined and emit just 95g/km of CO2, will join the range at a later date.

Prices for SE Business models start from £21,590 and deliveries are expected to commence later in the year.
