More on the facelift!

The most noticeable change is the new front grill that brings the Skoda Superb closer to the European Rapid and the newly launched 2013 Skoda Octavia.

The new black and chrome logo sits on the bonnet and forms the originating point for the characteristic central ridge that runs all the way to the windshield.

Media reports suggest that the Superb facelift would sport LED daytime running lights. The front bumper features new fog lamps and the air dam gets new mesh detailing.

Now that you mention yes I can see a slight recess..must say quite a good job done though. And also respect the dude for going the length to improve the not so attractive rear of the otherwise gorgeous looking car. Although I would have preferred if the new recess and license plate were slightly lower. Guess this pic deserves a slot in the mod jobs thread.

By the time this hits India it will earliest by diwali(highly doubt) or early 2014.

A friend is in the same situation as you now, have advised him to go ahead with the current version as the facelift will not be all that much different.

Btw, what discounts have you been offerred on the 1.8TSI?

Thanks for the advice, Sahil. So far I have been offered 1.25 lacs by one dealer and 1.25 lacs+17.5K Corporate discount by another in Mumbai/Thane. However, this is further negotiable, I'm sure. But I'll be leasing this and in that case the discount will be lower by 10 K, I'm told as insurance will not be done thru the dealer.

What kind of discounts is your friend getting and where is he based?

Ditto. Seems like the dealers have formed a cartel. They aren't letting him buy the skoda shield unless insurance is done via them also.

This New Superb seems the likely facelift that is going to hit soon -

The rendering is close to the real car since the image incorporates changes that were noticed in the front bumper image leak months ago.


Note from Mod: The vehicle has been officially unveiled. Please continue the discussion in this new thread on the topic : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...bi-europe.html (Skoda unveils updated Superb and Superb Combi in Europe)
