Thats pretty surprising as the Facelift is due anytime now. As usual Skoda clearing stocks of kits lying in the Eu or China as they get the all brown interior options there. No info found online yet about these changes though, neither in any press release by SAIPL. Was the headliner also of a darker shade grey/black?

Wow. Any photos?
There is too much beige in Skodas these days, and hence the Passat interiors felt refreshing though Superb is actually more handsome and VFM than Passat. Nice to know that this is fixed!

The seats had cloth covers on it (the type of cloth used instead of plastic bags). It was awaiting delivery so we respected the sales assistants wish not to sit in it

A sales advisor from local dealer sent me these on request:

Love the dark brown seats with black panels all around!

Sadly the headliner is still beige, that looks rather odd to me but some might make peace with it. Keeping the roof lighter may just give a richer sense of space I believe.

This isn't any special edition, just pure MY19 L&K Superb.

This must be from the newer batch because I have an MY19 and my seats are beige.

This is just my opinion but had the seats been black, this would have had my vote. Dark brown look appalling IMO. Had this been on display during my purchase, I would have second guessed my decision based solely on the colour of these brown seats

Hey Zahir! When I saw these pics I first remembered you just got your car few months back. But I think yours is MFG year 2019? Then it could be that yours is an Model Year 2018 but made in 2019. This is indeed the Model Year 2019 and MFG year 2019, I confirmed with two other people I know at the dealership. I personally like anything else besides beige. This brown color on the seats with the business Grey or black exterior would look very nice.

While no doubt it's a change from those light beige seats, I have to agree with Zahir that I don't like this colour. It's available as a no-cost option on the UK car configurator and from the threads on Briskoda, not a big hit.

Looks like they have channeled some kits to IN.

Interesting. I thought this maybe the Sportsline variant but you confirm its L&K. MY19 was already launched in Sep 2018 or so. I think Zahir confirmed his car is MY19.

Sportline is all black with alcantara finish. This is dark brown.

I'm surprised you guys don't like it. In person I loved it, way better than the sea of beige in older Superb.

Yes, it is an MY2019 car manufactured in October

Yeah the colour and the combination is just weird. May look better in person. I personally feel that the beige adds a sense of space. Darker colours make spaces seem tighter, though you gotta love the sporty all black.

Okay I think we need to have a poll. Vid can we add a temporary poll on the thread? Beige vs. Brown, let's settle it once and for all 👍🏽

Can someone throw some light on the reliability of the 1.8 Superb, especially w.r.t. the mechatronic failure?


I am looking at a TSI L&K as a replacement to my Octavia and am apprehensive about it's robustness since the drivetrain is the same in both cars

Added the 1.8 L&K to the garage yesterday. Opting for the extended warranty for further peace of mind

Congratulations on the ride! So you now own an Octavia 1.8, an Octavia RS, and a Superb 1.8! Thats a pretty envious garage Am I right in noticing the seats in the Superb are beige? I thought they were changed to Chocolate Brown sometime back on the L&K. Or is it an option?

Don't you feel you're missing out on the virtual cockpit of the Octavia/Kodiaq L&K?

Thanks!

Replaced the Octavia 1.8 with this

It's a 2018 manufacture so it has the beige, got an amazing deal on it though so I'm satisfied

I did try out the virtual cockpit on the Kodiaq and it seems gimmicky to me more than anything. The MID on the Superb is identical to the one on my VRS and I'm rather used to it, It does and says everything I need it to. A heads up display would've made a considerable difference though
