All Superbs come with basics such as Bluetooth, a USB socket and a multi-function steering wheel as standard. You also get an SD card reader and a DAB radio. The entry-level S trim has a 5in touchscreen, which becomes a 8.0in screen when you move up to SE trim. The SE upgrade also includes Smartlink - a feature that allows you to operate your smartphone’s apps from the car’s screen. On SE Technology-spec models, you get sat-nav as well. Once you move to the upper SE L Executive trim, this includes an upgraded infotainment, still with the same 8.0in screen but now complete with integrated wi-fi and two SD card readers.
It’s easy to perform operations such as pairing a phone and programming the sat-nav, but the bigger screen has larger icons that are easier to hit at a glance. However, BMW’s iDrive and Audi’s MMI system are less distracting to use on the move thanks to their rotary controller interfaces.
Several options are available, including a mobile phone signal booster with wireless charging, TV tuner and an upgraded 12-speaker, 610W sound system.
