Great scoop. I absolutely love the color. I think maybe first time in a Skoda. The front grille though looks BMW'sh it also had a great similarity to the Laura's grille.
If they price it like how the new accord was priced, it will be a sure shot winner.

Guess they would price it something like 1.3-1.5 times of the Accord price. Knowing Skoda to overprice and have bigger margins rather than, more volume with lesser margins

i think superb is also entering the 'confusion city' as far the exterior styling in concerned. merc/bmws have already given generous dose of funky curves to their cars. i'm hoping audi at least keep those straight lines for few years.

Everyone's running out of ideas these days, but yeah this looks good. Hope they price it like a Skoda and not an Audi.
This will sell well though because of its wannabe 7-series looks.

Fantastic photos redrage. Cant make out its a Skoda from the rear but the front is a dead giveaway. The rear looks wierd but I quite like the front. This should be a nice car.

I had been following this car for a long while now probably jan.
Launching date as what was told to me then was sept.
A feature of this car is it boot opens up as a normal sedan type plus like a liftback(with the glass).
The car is expected to see some real high pricing, so as I figure it out that in 23L range we already have passat and company wouldn't like a competitor to their own car. (VW skoda same group) So I am pretty much comfused how will they price. Above passat? closer to merc maybe 25L or something. what say?

It is a very good looking car! But lots of bits inspired from others...rear 3/4 is so A6-ish, the alloys remind me of the prev gen 7-series, the roof line is passat-ish....
But good news is that it all seems to concoct very nicely.

This new gen superb is a huge step up from the previous gen. The blue car looks good, would've looked even better in a gunmetal colour, not too crazy about the wheels though.
As far as pricing goes correct me if I am wrong, it will be priced at 24L (?)
