2016 Skoda Superb 2.0 TSI 280 Sport Line review
Sport Line trim makes a strong case for itself here, adding desirable kit without hurting the Superb’s plush ride and handling
It’s a Skoda Superb with a mild bit of added dynamism. Well, the Superb Sport Line is primarily a regular Superb with a new trim level, bringing as it does things such as gloss black plastics, new bumpers, new seats and some carbonfibre-look trim inside, but it also includes a 15mm suspension drop, an electronic differential lock and 19in alloy wheels. You can specify the new Sport Line on the more powerful (148bhp and up) Superb hatchbacks and estates. It will cost you around £600 more than an SE L model but almost £2000 less than a range-topping Laurin & Klement derivative.The Superb has a fairly expansive line-up, so even when you’re only talking about variants with more than 148bhp, there are 16 different models that can be ordered with Sport Line trim. We’ve tried the fastest, which couples a 276bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with four-wheel drive and a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
