The growing popularity of the Skoda Superb for business use has been underlined with the fact that the carmaker is to introduce a new trim – the SE Business.
There’s a lot of extra kit but without a premium for company car drivers including Alcantara trim and satnav.
Prices for the all-new Skoda Superb SE Business start at £21,590 for the 1.6 TDI model which has a power output of 120 PS.
Skoda Superb will be packed with equipment
Skoda is aiming its new model specifically at the needs of the UK’s fleet market and the new trim has kit including parking sensors – front and rear – and SmartLink which integrates the driver’s mobile phone with the on-board infotainment system.
Drivers also get to enjoy stylish sunset glass which is fitted from the B-pillar back as well as a Drive mode selector to enable a choice of driving profiles including sport, eco and normal.
From next year, Skoda will introduce a wireless charging system for mobile phones which also has an enhanced signal so that the driver’s phone will always be fully charged without having to plug it in first. The idea is that they will not miss any important calls either since the car will have a much stronger signal to avoid this from happening.
Skoda Superb will become a popular business choice
Other kit that’s also fitted as standard, and which can also be found on the Skoda Superb SE, are 17 inch alloy wheels, lumbar support, dual zone air con, adaptive cruise control, cornering front fog lights and electric door mirrors.
The Skoda Superb SE Business costs exactly the same as the Superb SE which makes it a serious player in the business car market.
Potential buyers should also be impressed with the two new diesel engines – the 1.6 litre and a 2 litre version with 150 PS power output. This model will cost £23,490.

Skoda is also adding its DSG transmission options on both engine options and business users may be attracted to the GreenLine model which should return 76 mpg while having CO2 emissions of 95g/km.
There’s a lot to be said for owning the Skoda Superb; it’s a great car with some ‘Clever Ideas’ such as being able to open the blue by simply waving your foot underneath the rear bumper, rear traffic alert to help reversing out of parking spaces and packing assist to automatically parallel park.
