Looks really lovely doesn't it?
The tyre sizes are a tad exaggerated but they look very good indeed.

The most noticeable changes are an all-new ‘butterfly’ grille with the new, two-tone Skoda logo, reshaped head- and fog lamps, and a re-profiled bumper and bonnet. Keeping with the contemporary trend, Skoda has introduced bi-xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights on the facelifted Superb which, on the top Elegance trim, get power washers. Further, the turn indicator is now a C-shaped strip of seven LED segments.

You’ll immediately notice the new part-LED tail-lamps that seem to have borrowed cues from the Audi school of design. The rear bumper, spoiler and boot lid have all been tweaked to look more angular and the number plate has now been moved to the boot lid from the bumper. The boot lid also has the revised Skoda badge, and the ‘Superb’ badge, which uses the new company typeface, has now moved from the centre to the bottom right of the lid. While this new rear end is neat and modern looking, it’s no longer as unique and immediately identifiable as before. Another obvious change is the new set of ‘Helix’ alloys. The 10-spoke design looks a bit like the blades of a turbine and adds dynamism to the car’s profile.

Step inside, and the changes are limited. The tweaks include a new four-spoke steering wheel for manual transmission-equipped Superbs and a revised, three-spoke design for the ones equipped with the DSG automatic gearbox. What’s good though is that now, even in the base Ambition trim, you get the better ‘Bolero’ audio player with a CD changer and Bluetooth telephony.

God thats an ugly car. Just looks like a fugly version of the Jetta. What is VW doing? The outgoing Superb wasn't beautiful but it had such an understated classy look. It had character.

I don't know how it will look in real life, but from the pics at least the front looks bad. Sigh. I thought Skoda was trying to improve.

wow If you cant stand this design this much, what would you say when you see the new lexus/toyota models? I dont know where do you see the Jetta profile, it will not age fast like the over-worked jap-korean designs.
