Skoda Superb to Cost Rs 50 Lakh (ex-showroom)
Even as the next-gen Skoda Superb has been in news, it’s still a while away from making its India debut. Meanwhile, the current-gen Superb, which went off the market earlier this year, will return with some important updates. Now, this is something that has already been confirmed by Brand Director Petr Solc. However, the leaked document reveals that this time around, the Superb would cost around Rs 50 Lakh (ex-showroom). This significant increase is owning to the switch from CKD to CBU route.
In fact, our sources also inform us about the return of the Octavia, albeit, in the vRS format. Even the Octy would be brought to our shores in limited numbers and could cost around the same as the Superb L&K. The go-faster iteration of the highly likeable sedan will have a 1.4 TSI engine working in tandem with an electric motor and a 13kWh battery pack. Together, it will pump out 245 hp.
