Skoda Superb Variants - Which One To Buy?

Now, it’s time to discuss which variant of the 2021 Skoda Superb you should ideally take home. 

Both the Superb Sportline and L&K variants are satisfactorily equipped. The Sportline variant sports an aggressive visual appeal, while the L&K variant flaunts a more sophisticated appearance. 

The L&K variant also adds-in a lot of features, among which the compelling ones include - the 11-speaker audio system, tyre pressure monitoring system and ventilated front seats.

According to our internal data, the L&K variant does not completely justify its incremental cost for the added features. However, this variant is not unreasonably overpriced either. As a result, we would recommend the L&K variant to most buyers for the additional features. 

The Sportline variant is value-wise better and its emotional appeal is also good. However, for a Rs 30 lakh+ car, the additional features that the L&K variant offers really make the Superb a more complete car, for both front and rear passengers. Hence, we prefer the L&K variant over the Sportline.

What Are The Exterior Colour Options of Skoda Superb? 

The Superb L&K variant is available in 5 exterior colour options, namely -- Grey, White, Brown, Black and Dark Blue. The Sportline variant is available for sale in a relatively lighter and sporty Blue colour option, apart from which there are White and Grey colour options. 

We like both the Blue colour tones of the Superb L&K and Sportline variants. Which colour option of the Skoda do you like₹Do let us know in the comment section.
