The updated Skoda Superb is the first Skoda production car to feature full LED Matrix headlights and dynamic lighting functions, the VW Group-owned brand says.

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 Skoda Superb will take place in May as part of the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia, which Skoda sponsors.

The sketch of the full LED Matrix headlights reveals the design of the new 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.
