The facelifted Skoda Superb sedan is expected to be unveiled in India at the 2020 Auto Expo. A set of spy photos have emerged which show the car undergoing what looks like homologation/emissions testing ahead of its launch.  The car gets some minor but tasteful updates both outside and inside, with the biggest changes reserved for under the hood. It gets a plug-in hybrid option for the first time internationally, which we're hoping will make its way to India eventually.

The interior's biggest addition is the Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster, VW's newest infotainment system and new chrome and other trim designs around the cabin. Expect the same 1.8 TSI and as earlier but in BSVI guise. The iV variant could also make a lot of sense for India given that we are unlikely to get the diesel option in the BSVI era.
