2021 Skoda Superb pricing and specs detailed: New 162TSI Style grade arrives for facelifted Kia Stinger and Subaru Outback rival

The 162TSI Style is the newest member of the Superb family.

Skoda Australia has lowered the cost of entry to the facelifted version of the third-generation Superb large car with the release of a new 162TSI Style grade.

The 162TSI Style is available in sedan ($49,090 plus on-road costs) and wagon ($50,790) body-styles, with it about $11,000 more affordable than the Superb’s carryover 206TSI Sportline and 200TSI Scout grades.

Like the 206kW/350Nm 206TSI Sportline and 200kW/350Nm 200TSI Scout, the 162TSI Style is motivated by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, with its version producing 162kW/350Nm.

Both the 162TSI Style and 206TSI Sportline are mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, although the former is front-wheel drive, while the latter instead has an all-wheel-drive system alongside the 200TSI Scout, which has a seven-speed unit.

Standard equipment in the 162TSI Style includes dusk-sensing Matrix LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, 19-inch Trinity alloy wheels, keyless entry, rear privacy glass and a power-operated tailgate.
