THE 3RD GEN SUPERB IN INDIA GETS THE FAMED LAURIN AND KLEMENT TRIM AND IT OOZES LUXURY!
Skoda launched the 3rd generation Superb in the country, on Tuesday, with an aggressive price. Superb finally received a Laurin and Klement treatment. We were getting Laurin and Klement variants of Octavias and Lauras within the country, but Superb had missed out on L&K trim in India. Like always with Skodas, L&K trim will on top of all and one thing it assured – that it will pamper you!
The Laurin and Klement trim comes with both 1.8-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel with a 7-Speed and a 6-Speed DSG automatic gearbox, respectively. However, in this variant, you also get driving modes. It differentiates itself with the base Style trim in terms of features in order to justify the price gap. To begin with, you get plenty of Laurin and Klement motifs inside – out on this saloon! It is on the front fenders, embossed on the L&K specific leather upholstery, door sills, on the gearshift knob and dashboard. It also rides on a different set of 17-inch alloys and even features tyre pressure monitoring system.
Coming to the extra add-ons – the ‘Boss Button’, it lets you adjust the front passenger’s seat from the rear. Similar to the one you get in other cars in the segment and others, but calling it a ‘Boss Button’ sounds so daunting! Also, the front passenger’s seat is 12-way adjustable and features electronic lumbar support. The standard 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment in L&K is powered by 12-speaker 610 W Canton sound system. The instrument cluster also gets a colour display in the L&K. Moreover, colour changeable ambient lighting is present.
The Laurin and Klement comes with 3-Zone climate control and the front seats are ventilated. Besides the Boss Button, there’s this another unique feature in L&K – virtual boot pedal. All you need to do is swipe your foot underneath and it pops open electronically.
