Skoda combats less-than-superb sales for its budget limousine with prices cuts across the whole range this week. VW’s budget arm has chopped £355 off a Superb 2.0-litre in Classic trim, which now anchors the range at £100 under £14k.
Higher up the range, there’s even bigger savings to be made, particularly on the pumpe-düse diesels. There’s £655 off the biggest-selling 1.9TDi PD 130, and a massive £3,250 off the crowing 2.5 V6 TDi Elengance, pitching in at £21,600. It’s approaching two years since the Superb’s introduction and, so far, it’s sold at just 163 registrations per month on average, compared to the 1179 for the company’s Octavia, and 1692 for its Fabia supermini over the same period. Skoda will be hoping that these price chops improves its flagship car's forecourt fortunes.
