We were rather surprised to see Skoda checking a refreshed variation of its flagship vehicle, the Superb, last year, only about 12 months after the debut of its 3rd modern-day generation. Now it makes a bit more sense that the Czech maker is working on a facelift for the Volkswagen Passat-based car and our spies have handled to record not one, however two prototypes.

The obvious answer, of course, would be a mid-life mild refresh, but another possible option is a plug-in variation, which was already verified to show up in 2019. It will end up being the brand’s first-ever PHEV and will feature the very same 1.4-liter TSI turbo engine combined to a 114-horsepower (85-kilowatt) electric motor the Passat GTE is featuring. The overall output of the system will be 215 hp (160 kW) with combined CO2 emissions of simply 39 grams per kilometer.

The German signs on the back of this Superb say ‘test drive’ and ‘brake test’, which suggest that Skoda is tweaking the way its most significant car drives. The brakes may be firmer on the facelifted car, and the optional adaptive suspension might be tweaked to offer a much better mix of convenience and sportiness.
