New SportLine trim level sits at the sportier end of the Skoda Superb range, adding racy touches both outside and in the cabin

Skoda has launched the Superb SportLine, a new trim level that adds a select few styling accessories to spruce up the spacious large family car both inside and out. While the highly rated, spacious family car isn’t a traditionally sporty model, this version will be aiming to steal sales from Audi S-Line and BMW M-Sport models.

For all the latest reductions, head over to our Skoda Superb deals page. You might be able to save yourself cash on a brand new car.

Skoda Superb SportLine styling

From the outside, the SportLine stands out from the rest of the Superb lineup by ditching the chrome trim. Instead, the front grille, bumper-mounted air intake and window surrounds are painted black, while the standard car’s body-coloured door mirrors and roof are also replaced for black items. Hatchback models also gain the slightest lip spoiler mounted on the bootlid, also finished in black. An estate version is also available.

The SportLine rides on 19-inch alloy wheels and sports suspension lowers the car 15mm closer to the ground than the standard model. A new colour, Dragon Green, is also exclusively available to SportLine models.

Further sporty touches continue to lift the Superb SportLine’s cabin. Sports seats with electric adjustment are trimmed in quilted Alcantara, a three-spoke steering wheel with silver stitching replaces the usual unit, and black roof headlining, aluminium pedals and carbon-effect trim for the dashboard round out the changes.

Skoda Superb SportLine driving and engines

The Superb SportLine is offered with a selection of three petrol and two diesel engines, ranging from the 148hp 2.0-litre TDI to the 276hp 2.0-litre turbocharged 280. That top-spec petrol model sends power to all-four wheels, and the same system is an option on the 187hp 2.0-litre diesel. Front-wheel drive models are available with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed DSG automatic gearboxes, while the four-wheel drive models are auto-only.

The SportLine trim is loaded up with many of the Superb’s most desirable goodies. Standard kit includes xenon headlights, satellite navigation, on-board WiFi, rear parking sensors, climate control and keyless entry. Drive Mode Select also allows drivers to adjust the steering feel and throttle response between four settings – Normal, Sport, Eco or Individual.

Skoda Superb SportLine prices and release date

The Superb SportLine range costs from £26,490 in 1.4-litre petrol hatchback form – that’s £2,270 more than the current SE L trim. Estate models add £1,200 to the hatchback’s asking price. The SportLine models will be available to order from July 2016.
