Skoda has revealed the facelifted Superb ahead of the car’s debut later this month at the 2013 Auto Shanghai. Updated Superb features a restyled front with a new Skoda logo, updated rear, new interior trim and a modified engine line-up.

There are also new wheels available in sizes between 16- to 18-inch with Moon White and Meteor Gray metallic paints, as well as
bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Other changes to the front include squarer fog lights, new bonnet and front wings. At the rear we can see LED tail lights, new trunk lid and an updated bumper.

The hatch has an impressive 595 literes of cargo room, while the more practical Estate has 633 litres. When the seats are folded down, the cargo room increases to 1700 and 1865 litres respectively.

Other highlights include panoramic glass roof with solar cells, automatic parking assist, 6.5-inch touchscreen with a 30 GB hard drive, a jumbo box in the centre console, nine airbags, ABS, ESP, a tyre pressure monitor system, hill assist and driver activity assistant which warns the driver in case of fatigue.
