ŠKODA’s updated flagship model, the Superb, is the brand’s first production car to feature innovative full LED Matrix headlights. The revised model will boast even more safety and greater comfort. The Czech car manufacturer has revealed first impressions of the new full LED Matrix headlights, the redesigned LED fog lights and full LED tail lights with dynamic indicators. The world premiere of the revised ŠKODA Superb will take place in May as part of the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia; which ŠKODA sponsors.
The sketch of the full LED Matrix headlights reveals the design of the innovative lighting system, which consists of an LED module for the dipped and high beam as well as three further LED high beam segments, and bears ‘ŠKODA Crystal Lighting’ lettering in the housings. A narrow strip of LEDs provides the indicators, daytime running lights and position light. Above this are fine needle-like LED structures, which are part of the new animated Coming/Leaving Home function. When turning on and off the car, this feature automatically turns elements of the headlights and tail lights on and off in a specified sequence.
The video shows the new full LED Matrix headlights and the Coming/Leaving Home animation in action and illustrates how they work. It also showcases the redesigned fog lights featuring LED technology and the full LED tail lights. As a debut for the ŠKODA Superb, these come with dynamic indicators that illuminate in an outward sweeping motion. Not only do these provide a more dynamic appearance, they are also more noticeable for other road users and increase road traffic safety.
As the flagship model, the Superb boasts the brand’s latest innovations in terms of safety, driving comfort, and performance – bringing many advantages and specification features often found in cars from higher segments.
The upgraded Superb is celebrating its world premiere in May at the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in the Slovakian capital, Bratislava.
