You know what, why doesn't Skoda introduce this facelifted version as another model in the Indian market. They could charge two lakhs more for giving the Indian consumer the privilege of owning the latest luxury model from the prestigious marque. Now, there's an idea.

Not quite I don't think anyone would want to pay 2 lakhs more for that.

i question the authenticity of these photos. it is a photoshopped image with the steering wheel of the new superb being tucked on to the interior and the current laura combi being photoshopped with the new superb front.

look carefully at these images and u can make out the gelling of the front and sides.
the laura facelift will look like this:

Although the images dont look like they are photoshopped, the face lifted version looks very much similar to Superb. So I am not expecting this facelift.

Skoda seems to be really influenced by BMW's designs. The new Superb has a generous topping of the BMW 7 series, especially the front...I do hope they retain the simple clean lines. I quite like the look of the current Laura.
