The facelifted Skoda Superb returns in November, after a lengthy hiatus from Australia because of supply constraints related to tough new European emissions testing.

For MY21 the Sportline 206TSI rejoins the range in both sedan and wagon guises, while the limited-edition Scout 200TSI 4×4 crossover wagon has carried over as a mainstay model.

Entry-level 162TSI versions of the sedan and wagon will arrive in the first quarter of 2021, with details to be announced closer to launch.

Pricing

  • 2021 Skoda Superb 162TSI Sedan: $TBA (Arriving Q1 2021)
  • 2021 Skoda Superb 162TSI Wagon: $TBA (Arriving Q1 2021)
  • 2021 Skoda Superb Sportline 206TSI Sedan: $60,390 (+$3100)
  • 2021 Skoda Superb Sportline 206TSI Wagon: $62,090 (+$3100)
  • 2021 Skoda Superb Scout 200TSI 4×4: $61,990 (+$2500)

Prices exclude on-road costs

Skoda Australia has also announced national drive-away pricing for the MY21 Superb range, advertised as follows:

  • Sportline 206TSI Sedan: $62,990 (+$3000)
  • Sportline 206TSI Wagon: $64,990 (+$3300)
  • Scout 200TSI 4×4 Wagon: $63,990 (+$2000)

Engines

The 2021 Skoda Superb 206TSI Sportline and 200TSI Scout 4×4 are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol mated to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic, driving all four wheels.

However, there are some small differences with regards to the outputs and exhaust systems.

Sportline variants get the outgoing model’s 206kW/350Nm tune, which does without the petrol particulate filter (PPF) which is standard fit for European-delivered models.

The Scout, meanwhile, carries over the MY20.5 version’s 200kW/350Nm that includes the PPF, requiring strict adherence to minimum fuel requirements.

“This particulate filter can withstand petrol with 50 parts per million of sulphur, but it must be understood that these cars can run only on premium unleaded,” Michael Irmer, director of Skoda Australia, said at the Scout’s initial launch earlier this year.

“At point of sale the vehicles will feature mirror hangers emphasising this point. Additionally we have developed high visibility fuel cap stickers. Sales teams will reinforce this message. Our view is that all Australian motorists would benefit by the mandating of premium petrol as standard.”

Fuel Economy

Skoda Australia hasn’t detailed any changes to fuel economy data for the MY19 Sportline or MY20 Scout, so we’ll run with the existing figures for MY21.

The Sportline 206TSI models both claim to use 7.3L/100km on the combined cycle regardless of body style, while the Scout 200TSI 4×4 is slightly thriftier at 7.1L/100km combined.

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 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.

Finally, the Superb Scout is slightly different again, measuring 4863mm long, 1864mm wide and 1511mm tall – courtesy of its 15mm higher ride height with ground clearance rated at 151mm.

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

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

Safety

The Skoda Superb wears a five-star ANCAP safety rating based on tests of the pre-facelift model conducted in 2015.

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.

Key feedback included marginal driver chest protection in the full-width frontal test, as well as marginal whiplash protection for rear passengers.

Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains), and a driver knee airbag are standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.

Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is standard on Australian models, as are blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane-keeping assist.

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.

A new car service pack can be purchased for $1700 at the point of sale, covering the first five years or 75,000km.

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.
