Deliveries of the 2016 Skoda Superb have been delayed for the diesel variants. The company has stated that this is happening due to a shortage of kits.

Skoda is delaying deliveries of diesel variants owing to shortage of kits

With a much bolder look, sharp and eye-catchy detailing than its predecessor, the new Skoda Superb is a sedan that offers plenty of sophistication, numerous comfort aids and a luxurious feel just like a higher segment car. The vehicle has been getting pretty good response but deliveries of the diesel variants are getting delayed.

Dealers across the country have been directed not to accept any bookings. The reason behind this unfavourable delay is the shortage of diesel kits to build the model. To avoid further complications, Skoda is now giving three options to its buyers which include either transferring the booking to a petrol car or wait for the diesel model till August or else take a refund of the booking amount.

The Skoda Superb is offered with a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine and this engine is known to be pretty efficient as well as a good performer. The vehicle also gets a 1.8-litre TSI petrol engine. Skoda offers the Superb with manual as well as automatic gearboxes.

With deliveries of the car getting delayed indefinitely, customers are likely to get disappointed with the brand. If the company doesn’t assure the customers of a speedy resolution, then there is a high possibility of buyers moving to other brands. The 2016 Superb was launched in India in February and it is priced between Rs. 23.83-30.85 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
