The new Skoda Superb was unveiled at the Autocar Performance Show but will reach showrooms only in February 2009. Prices of the new Superb will start at Rs 20 lakh for the base petrol model, going up to Rs 25 lakh for the top end petrol.

“We will bring an exciting range of engines: a 1.8-litre, 160bhp TSI petrol, a 2.0-litre diesel with 140bhp, and a new 3.6-litre V6 petrol with 260bhp.” said Thomas Kuehl, Board Member of Skoda India.

The V6 will be launched a few months after the 1.8 petrol and 2.0-litre diesel versions. The Superb is known for its limo-like space and will prove to be the biggest threat to Group stable-mate the Volkswagen Passat.
