Unveiled internationally at the Shanghai Motorshow in April, the newly revamped Superb will arrive in Ireland just in time for the new 132 registration plate in July.

It will feature increased specifications on all model versions and a competitive new entry price from €24,995 (1.4 TSI Active model).

The new Superb is available in a variety of turbo-charged TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines with reduced fuel consumption across all models.

The entry (and most popular) 1.6 TDI diesel engine produces 105bhp and now achieves 4.2 l/100km (67mpg).

The range-topping 2.0 TDI, 170 bhp now produces 20g/km less than the outgoing model, which results in annual savings of €120 in road tax.

In some cases CO2 emissions have been reduced by 19%, resulting in reduced vehicle registration taxes (VRT) and savings of up to €3,400 when compared to the outgoing model.

Raymond Leddy, Head of Product & Marketing, Škoda, said: "The new Superb has received more than just an external makeover. All Superbs are now more fuel efficient thanks to improved aerodynamics and reduced vehicle weight.

"Mechanically, the volume-selling 1.6 TDI engine is now fitted with a new six-speed manual transmission, while all engines now receive start-stop technology to improve fuel economy even further.

"In addition, stylish new rear LED lights and Bluetooth technology for improved safety have been added to all models."
