Skoda India has launched the Superb Corporate Edition in India at an introductory price tag of Rs 23.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). This makes Corporate Edition the most affordable variant of the Superb yet. However, it will be sold to existing Skoda customers only. The powertrain is the only major difference between the standard Superb and the Corporate Edition. While it continues to be powered by the 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 180PS of max power and 320Nm of peak torque, the Corporate Edition gets a manual gearbox instead of a DSG. There’s no diesel powertrain available either.

Here is the official release issued by Skoda:
Mumbai, 16 January, 2019: Stirred by the success in 2018, SÌKODA AUTO India introduces the 2019 SUPERB Corporate Edition at an attractive introductory ex-showroom price of INR 23.99 lacs exclusively for SÌKODA customers. The SUPERB Corporate Edition serves to cater a demand for a modern emotionally-rich design, a high degree of functionality, generous proportions and dimensions, innovative safety solutions, superlative ownership experience, and unparalleled ‘value for money’ proposition.
The Corporate Edition is equipped with the 1.8 TSI (MT) petrol engine from the SUPERB model range which produces an impressive 180 PS (132 kW) of power and a torque output of 320 Nm while delivering fuel efficiency of 14.64 kmpl. The demand for an AT iteration was identified among its customers, which SÌKODA AUTO is contemplating to introduce towards the later part of the year. The 2019 SUPERB Corporate Edition will be available in two colour options: Candy White and the all new Magnetic Brown, across all authorized SÌKODA dealership facilities in the country.
The front view of the SÌKODA SUPERB Corporate Edition is characterized by a wide radiator grille, an elongated bonnet, wide headlights, and razor-sharp front fog lights. The perfectly balanced proportions, the large glass areas and headlamps sweeping around the sides lend the car’s profile an extraordinary visual presence and emotional appeal. The rear of the car depicts a skilful play of convex and concave forms. The dark brushed deÌcor with the stone beige leather upholstery uses the dialect of elegance that reflects the glorious SÌKODA history and design language.
SAFETY AND SMART ASSISTANCE
At SÌKODA AUTO, safety is a priority and not an option. The standard safety equipment in the 2019 SUPERB Corporate Edition includes a wide array of features, such as eight air bags: dual front air bags, side airbags at front and rear, curtain airbags at front and rear, and five three-point seatbelts.
The headlamps of the SUPERB Corporate Edition come with the AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) function for optimum illumination of the road and its surroundings. These headlamps are able to respond to speed changes as well as to various light and weather conditions. The AFS system includes headlamp swivelling and cornering functions, in addition to dynamic headlamp inclination control.
The Multi-Collision Brake system makes use of the ESC (Electronic Stability Control), and if the driver’s or front passenger’s airbag is activated, the system prevents uncontrolled movement of the vehicle and thus reduce the likelihood of further collisions. The rear view camera, with an integrated washer, located on the handle of the boot door monitors the space behind the car and indicates the driving lanes, based on the vehicle width.
‘SIMPLY CLEVER’ SOLUTIONS
The 2019 SÌKODA SUPERB Corporate Edition hosts a plethora of the most technically advanced and intelligent connectivity features that add a practical twist to elegance. The state-of-the-art 20.32 cm floating touchscreen display with proximity sensor is a part of the new generation Amundsen infotainment system developed by SÌKODA. It is equipped with SmartLinkTM technology (SÌKODA Connectivity bundles supporting MirrorLink®, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto) which mirrors the smartphone for seamless connectivity and undistracted drive. New age ‘Simply Clever’ connectivity solutions along with BossConnect, integrated with SÌKODA Media Command App help occupants control functions like radio, music and navigation from the comfort of the rear seat.
The Three Zone Climatronic air conditioning, with clean air function, enables different temperatures to be set for the driver, the front and the rear passengers. It’s also fitted with a humidity sensor which reduces the windscreen misting. The Boarding Spots, designated to illuminate the entry area, are located on the external side-view mirrors and on the underside of the front and rear doors. It allows you to see where you’re stepping when it’s dark outside.
With a capacity of 625 litres, stretched to 1,760 litres with the rear seat backrests folded down, the new SUPERB Corporate Edition is at the top of its class in space. It transcends to maximised space and practicality for all your business, pleasure and practical essentials. The illuminated and cooled Jumbo Box storage compartment, housed in the front armrest, is extremely convenient for storing your gadgets, house keys, books and beverages. The ‘Easy Open’ bottle holder has an anti-slip design which allows the driver to open a bottle with just one hand.
SÌKODA announced its 4 year service care program which consists of a 4 year warranty program and a 4 year (24 x 7) Road Side Assistance which is standard on all SÌKODAs. Additionally, customers have an option to purchase a 4 year service package at a nominal price which ensures a hassle-free ownership experience.
