Skoda has been spied testing its new-generation Superb wagon in Southern Europe ahead of its reveal in the Northern Hemisphere autumn (September to November).

    The design appears to be evolutionary, with the spied prototype having a similar silhouette to the current Superb.

    There’s a sharp crease wrapping around the side and back, upon which the door handles sit, while the belt line appears higher and more steeply raked than before.

    Recent teaser photos have shown the Superb will have a distinctive LED daytime running light signature that wraps around to form a ‘Y’ shape.

    We’re yet to see any interior imagery of the new Superb, though it may adopt a more tablet-like infotainment touchscreen.

    Last year’s Vision 7S concept previewed such a screen, along with a row of physical switches and three rotary dials on the centre console.

    As previously reported, the next-generation Skoda Superb will be available in both liftback and wagon forms.

    This is unlike the next-generation Volkswagen Passat, which will be wagon-only. The Superb’s corporate cousin will be assembled on the same production line in Bratislava, Slovakia.

    The new Skoda Superb will continue to offer a range of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrains, though the current model is offered only with petrol power locally.

    Both the Skoda Superb and Volkswagen Passat are expected to move to the MQB Evo architecture in next-generation guise, like the current Volkswagen Golf, Skoda Octavia, and Cupra Formentor.

    Skoda has a glut of fresh product coming. There’s also a new-generation version of the Kodiaq SUV that’ll be revealed alongside the new Superb.

    Refreshed versions of the Scala, Kamiq and Octavia are due in Australia in 2024, along with the Enyaq and Enyaq Coupe electric SUVs.

    Skoda has also details its upcoming range of EVs in Europe. A refreshed Enyaq and Enyaq Coupe are due in 2025, while a new Volkswagen Tiguan-sized model called the Elroq will replace the combustion-powered Karoq in 2024.

    A new entry-level EV priced around 25,000 euros (~A$39,900) is due in 2025, and will be followed by a station wagon and a large three-row SUV in 2026.

    Local launch timing for these models has yet to be announced.
