The 2021 Skoda Superb line-up has been fleshed out with the introduction of the base 162TSI Style, though the higher-riding Scout has been removed from local price lists.

The 162TSI returns the option of front-wheel drive to the Superb line-up, while lowering the cost of entry to the range by $10,000.

The new entry-level model is around $9000 more expensive than the last Superb 162TSI sold here, though it features a commensurately longer list of standard kit.

UPDATE, 17/05/21 We’ve updated this article with details of the 162TSI Style and brought it forward.

The Superb range returned to Australia in November 2021 after a hiatus, which saw the introduction of the facelifted model delayed by 12 months.

The delay was a result of supply constraints related to tough new European emission testing.

The 2021 Skoda Superb 206TSI Sportline is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol four-cylinder, driving all four wheels. It produces 206kW of power and 350Nm of torque.

Unlike the Scout, it doesn’t feature a petrol particulate filter (PPF) and uses a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 2021 Skoda Superb uses 7.1L/100km and 7.2L/100km in 162TSI Sedan and Wagon variants, respectively, while the 206TSI Sportline Sedan and Wagon use 8.0L and 8.1L/100km.

All models run on 95RON premium unleaded fuel.

Dimensions

Being a facelift rather than an all-new model, there have been no significant changes noted to the Superb’s dimensions.

The 2021 Skoda Superb measures 4861mm long, 1864mm wide and 1468mm tall in five-door liftback (‘Sedan’) form, with a wheelbase spanning 2841mm.

Meanwhile, the Superb Wagon is slightly shorter at 4856mm, while maintaining the 1864mm width and 2841mm wheelbase. It is however, slightly taller at 1477mm.

The sedan offers 625L of luggage space in five-seat layout and 1760L with the second row folded.

Opting for the wagon ups luggage space to 660L and a massive 1950L with the rear seats folded.

Servicing and Warranty

All Skoda Australia models are covered by a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with a year of complimentary roadside assistance – which is extended for 12 months at a time if you service your vehicle with a Skoda dealer.

Speaking of maintenance, the Skoda Superb requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km – whichever comes first.

Servicing packs can be purchased for $900 or $1700 at the point of sale, covering the first three years or 45,000km or the first five years or 75,000km, respectively.

Additionally, a used car service pack can be purchased after the first 15,000km scheduled service for $1600, and is valid for the next four visits.

It scored 86 per cent for adult occupant protection, 86 per cent for child occupants, 71 per cent for pedestrian protection and 76 per cent for safety assist.
