Mumbai, 16 October 2018: ŠKODA AUTO India unveiled the SUPERB SPORTLINE at an attractive introductory ex-showroom price of INR 28.99 lacs, nationwide, taking forward the ‘One Nation. One Price.’ philosophy. The SUPERB SPORTLINE will be available in two engine - 1.8 TSI (AT) and 2.0 TDI (AT) and three colour - Moon White, Velvet Red and Steel Grey options across all authorized ŠKODA dealership facilities in the country.

The car comes equipped with 17" dual tone Drakon alloy wheels, rear diffuser with chrome highlights, and the distinctive SPORTLINE badge on both front fenders.

The Satin black Alcantara® Sports Seats with integrated headrests and diamond stitching further enhance the interior’s boldness.

The chrome front and rear door sill strips with 'SUPERB' inscription and the chrome pedals add to the unique look of the car.
