zenx, the roomster looks infintely bettter than the multipla. Nothing even compares with that in ugliness. The roomster seems to have been inspired by a Mazda front end. It looks pretty spacious....at least from the pics.

they're all a little gawky. like geeky schoolboys with glasses - smart, efficient, and deliberately utilitarian.

Nice one. However, one mustn't forget precisely how complete the Multipla was when it came to serving a purpose. It just etched out the fact that looks just aren't about everything.

Boombqastic, I thought you bought a Laura?

Anyway I dont think all Skoda's are ugly. The Roomster however does look like 2 different cars welded together.

Navin Bhai, I didn't buy the Laura after all, but I do find the front of the Octavia to be ugly from day one. I might hate the front look of the Octavia, but then, looks are subjective. Laura, however, has solved the ugly front problem and is beautiful, not in tune with modern design, but beautiful .

I just love the way you've described this car though

The Octavia and Laura look nice. This one looks real ugly IMO.
