The facelifted Skoda Superb is due to make its debut later this month, and the automaker has teased its refreshed third-generation flagship via a design sketch, offering a glimpse of what to expect.

The L-shaped LED daytime running lights appear similar in shape to those on the 2015 car, though the headlamp appears to consist of different elements within the housing. Elsewhere, the grille is now a more imposing item and now sits directly adjacent to the headlamps, whereas it was previously book-ended by sections of the front bumper.

The grille also features rows of twin chrome elements as compared to the 2015 car’s singular line. Meanwhile, the front foglamps are slimmer on the 2019 design sketch, and the chrome strip that bridges the two foglamps now loop around the foglamps.

Being a mid-lifecycle update, the facelifted Superb should continue to use the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, albeit with updates. It will be the marque’s first to offer a plug-in hybrid option courtesy of the 1.4 litre TSI petrol-eletric powertrain from the Volkswagen Passat GTE, according to Autocar.

The facelifted Superb will also gain interior revisions similar to those applied to the Skoda Scala hatchback, where wireless mobile device integration for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is likely to be standard fit across all variants. It has also been reported that Skoda’s own revised infotainment system will also enable over-the-air updates and new mobile app functions.
