Skoda has lightly altered the Superb range for 2018, with a new spec Superb SportLine and the addition of a new SportLine Plus model at the very top end of its flagship saloon line-up.
Changes to the regular SportLine are very minor, but actually focus on bringing the price of the SportLine down. As such, the 9.2-inch Columbus infotainment and navigation unit is out, replaced by the smaller, older eight-inch Amundsen system. It means that the price of the Superb SportLine has been reduced by ВЈ470, ranging across both hatchback and estate bodied variants, and regardless of gearbox, engine or drivetrain.

The fresh addition вЂ“ the SportLine Plus вЂ“ muscles in with more equipment. The 9.2-inch Columbus system is standard kit here, while it also gains heated front seats, blind spot detectors, and an electronic tailgate. Prices start at ВЈ29,330 for the hatch version and ВЈ30,645 for the estate, representing a ВЈ1,500 premium over the regular, and now cheaper, SportLine car.
While updates at the sportier end of the range are the big story, the entire Superb line-up with the exception of the entry level S car has been updated in some way, but with no changes to list price. SE and SportLine models gain front and rear parking sensors, as do SE L Executive cars, which build on this with blind spot detection, keyless entry and a colour trip computer. Plus LK cars now feature a heated steering wheel, ventilated seats, and a reversing camera as standard too.
The updated Superb line-up is available in the UK now, with Sportline Plus cars arriving in June.
