Mild tweaks for Skoda's limo
31 July 2006

Can you spot the difference? This is the new 2007 model-year Skoda Superb, but you’d be hard pressed to tell.

Skoda’s stretched Passat has had the slightest of makeovers inside and out, with all models now getting more chrome on the radiator grille, revised lights front and rear, indicators in the door mirrors and a ‘new dashboard configuration,’ including white backlighting. There are also four new paint colours.

The biggest news, however, is the introduction of a new range-topping Laurin & Klement edition. This low-price limo comes with full leather upholstery, wood and metal trim, tinted rear glass and 17-inch alloys.

Prices have yet to be confirmed before the car’s arrival in the UK in September, but with no new engines expect them to stay close to those of the current car, which starts at £13,925 for the 2.0 and rises to £21,330 for the 2.5 V6 diesel.
