The 2020 Skoda Superb facelift comes in two variants - Sportline and L&K, compared to Camry's single Hybrid variant

Now, visually, we certainly think the Skoda Superb comes with better proportions and styling, compared to the Toyota Camry Hybrid, however, looks are subjective so we won't get more into that. However, in terms of features, both cars are at par with each other. Both the Superb and the Camry Hybrid come with full LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED taillamps, and a good amount of chrome detailing. That said, the Superb comes with a set of 17-inch alloy wheels, while the Camry Hybrid offers a set of 18-inch alloys.

Now, even if we just consider the Superb L&K variant, the Toyota Camry is more expensive by ₹ 4.89 lakh, while compared to the Sportline trim the difference is close to ₹ 8 lakh. While the Camry Hybrid does offer more power, and better safety features, the main reason for this huge difference in price is because of the higher GST rate of 43 per cent that hybrid vehicles attract. So, on paper, if you are looking for a premium full-size sedan and it has to a hybrid vehicle then go for the Camry. However, if a hybrid is not your priority, then there is nothing better than the Superb in this space. The features are almost at par with the Camry and we certainly loved the 2.0-litre TSI & DSG combo in the Tiguan Allspace. We will be testing both the cars in real-world condition, post-lockdown, to tell which one is the better choice in this segment. So, keep watching this space for more updates.
