The new Superb looks a lot more angular and cleaner compared to the car it replaces.
The front is dominated by Skoda's signature grille and the large air intake underneath it. Above the grille sits the Skoda badge while the razor sharp angular headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights flank it. The angular fog lamps flank the air intake.
The sides of the Superb are fdominated by a character line that connects the headlamps and the taillamps. The ORVMs are angular and have turn indicators embedded into them.
The main highlight at the rear are the LED taillamps which look quite sharp and angular and are wider compared to the ones found on the previous Superb.
Inside the car is sees quite a bit of leather while the centre console is home to the 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Skoda's own Mirrorlink system.
Another rather interesting and rather quirky feature is the inclusion of umbrella holders in the front doors, something that is usually seen on a Rolls-Royce.
