Available from September, the revised models will now feature blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert and semi-autonomous driving functions that will steer, accelerate and brake automatically in dense traffic.
Also, the new Superb range now comes with a larger 9.2-inch touchscreen compared to the previous 8.0-inch unit.
With the increase in standard equipment comes an increase in prices, with Skoda adding between $700 and $4800 depending on the model.
With the 162TSI variant now costing $40,690 before on-road costs for the sedan and $42,390 in wagon form, prices have risen $700. The diesel-powered 140TDI model now starts from $44,690 in sedan guise and $46,390 for the wagon, which is a jump of $800.
The all-wheel-drive Superb 206TSI also gets an $800 price-hike to bring its total to $51,790 and $53,490 for the sedan and wagon respectively.
Along with the across-the-board updates, the range-topping Sportline variant adds adaptive damper control, a premium Canton sound system, electric adjustable and heated passenger seats, a hands-free boot and a new pale-green paint colour.
As a result, the Sportline variant now costs $56,790 for the sedan and $58,490 for the wagon, which represents a rise of $4800 over the existing model.
