Replacements for the current Skoda Kodiaq and Superb will be revealed this year, and the Czech brand has teased the next-generation models.
They’re set to be launched in Europe in the northern autumn (our spring), which would likely mean a local launch in 2024.
Though these are new generations and not mid-life refreshes – both are expected to move to the MQB Evo architecture – we can see in the teaser images that design changes are evolutionary.
The Kodiaq has a largely similar silhouette to the current vehicle, though there are distinctive LED daytime running lights that wraparound to form a Y shape.
The Superb has a similar silhouette and what appear to be similarly shaped lighting elements to the outgoing model.
Unlike the related Volkswagen Passat, the Superb will continue to offer a choice of two body styles instead of going wagon-only.
The new models are expected to feature more tablet-style infotainment touchscreens.
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.
The new Kodiaq and Superb will be among the last to be introduced wearing Skoda’s traditional badge, albeit in flatter 2D form. All new launches from 2024 will see the winged logo banished to the wheels only, with the Skoda wordmark instead used front and rear.
Skoda has a glut of fresh product coming.
Skoda has also detailed 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$41,361) 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.
