The LED unit is equipped with 'coming in/leaving home' illumination and LED turn indicators are standard.

The fog lights on the Superb now make use of four diodes which also help in visibility, especially in low-light conditions.
Inside, the Superb promises to be even more premium and feature-packed. The eight-inch infotainment system tries to be the jewel in the Superb's crown. This floating display with a glass design gets proximity sensors and is part of the new generation Amundsen Infotainment System, with inbuilt navigation. There is support for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Type C USB ports, wireless charging for compatible phones and Bluetooth audio streaming option.
Aesthetically, the Superb now benefits from a piano black decor with Stone Beige or Coffee Brown perforated leather upholstery. A three-spoked steering wheel design makes its way in and on the inside of Superb SportLine, this is flat-bottomed out. Here, black Alcantara sports seats with integrated headrests and the paddle shifters are the other highlights.
