Skoda adds sporty visual touches to Superb 206TSI

Skoda Superb 206TSI

The SportLine package adds new black accents and trim.

Want the Skoda Superb 206TSI but think it lacks some visual punch? Well, the Czech manufacturer has the answer with a new $1000 SportLine visual package.

Available for both the sedan and wagon versions of the Superb, the SportLine package adds new black accents and trim.

Outside, the pack adds new badging on the front fenders, black door mirrors, a black rear diffuser, chrome exhausts, black grille, black side strips, and new SportLine exclusive 19-inch anthracite alloy wheels.

For the sedan you also get a black rear spoiler, while for wagon owners the spoiler is in the body colour, and roof rails painted black.

Inside, there is a SportLine dash cluster, sport seats with Alacantra inserts, a three-spoke flat bottomed wheel trimmed in perforated leather with silver stitching, a dash strip with SportLine badging, aluminium pedal covers, Alacantra inserts in the door trims, black ceiling liner, and a customisable performance monitor with lap timer.

There are no performance upgrades for the extra cash.

The 206TSI is powered by a 206kW/350Nm 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder, with a 6-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, and permanent all-wheel-drive. The sporty Superb can do 0-100km/h in 5.8-seconds.

Skoda Australia Managing Director Michael Irmer says the introduction of the SportLine Package was driven by consumer demand.

"Our customers want 'Christmas trees', with all the latest available technology coming out of Europe" he said. "More than 90 per cent of them specify Tech and Comfort packages.”

The Skoda Superb SportLine will cost $51,990 for the sedan, and $53,690 for the wagon.

The Tech pack and Comfort pack are an additional $3400 and $700 respectively, while the addition of a sunroof will cost $1700 for the sedan, and $1900 for the wagon.

Skoda will introduce its new Kodiaq seven-seat SUV in July, plus a new Octavia and Scout later this year.
