The L&K buyers will have 5 color options- Lava Blue, Moon White, Business Grey, Magic Black, and Magnetic Brown and for the Sportline buyers, there are only 3 color options-Race Blue, White, and Steel Grey.
The headlight carries minor changes in design which can only a Skoda lover can notice. The sharp bumper creases on the current car seem to be removed. The Superb Sportline differentiates itself with a few subtle exterior touches in the form of a blacked-out grille, ORVMs, a contrast roof, and a different design for the alloy wheels.

In case you are wondering, there will be no diesel option for India, which is in line with Skoda’s plans to go petrol-only in the BS6 era. Yes, the Superb Sportline showcased at the Expo did have a diesel engine, but at launch, it, too, will only be available with the 2.0-liter TSI engine.
Expect the Skoda Superb facelift’s price in India is expected to. be slightly higher than that of the outgoing petrol model (Rs 25.99-30.99 lakh, ex-showroom).
