This information has been backed by official sketches, giving us a good indication of what the new car will be like. Going by the sketches, which resemble concept more than production, Skoda Superb 2015 is set to feature an entirely revamped design. The car will looks slicker than its predecessor, with more interior room and better equipment on-board.

In addition, the car is expected to borrow the plug-in hybrid technology from the recently launched eight-generation VW Passat.
