    What Are The Prices Of 2021 Skoda Superb? 

    The Skoda Superb is available for sale in just 2 variants -- Sportline and L&K. The Sportline variant is priced at around Rs 32 lakh, while the L&K variant is Rs 3 lakh costlier than the Sportline. It is worth noting that in this price range, there are no other premium sedans available in the Indian market apart from the Superb. So, price-wise it has no direct rivals. 

    You can take a look at the pricing details of the 2021 Skoda Superb in the following table:

    What Are The Engine Specifications of Skoda Superb? 

    The Superb comes equipped with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that is capable of generating 190PS of maximum power and 320Nm of peak torque. This engine gets paired with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, and this powertrain’s claimed fuel efficiency is around 15kmpl.

    Although the Toyota Camry is now not available in the Superb’s price range, it is still the closest rival of the Superb. The Camry gets powered by a 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid engine, which is more powerful than the Superb’s. However, the Camry’s torque:weight ratio is significantly less than the Superb.

    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.
