Default MY 2007 Skoda Superb

Skoda has "modernised" the Superb from inside and out for MY 2007.



What is new in this car? It's the now defunct VW Passat. The desgin and lines scream Passat. And the "new" interiors are aslo from the old Passat! Talk about hand me downs!



More Here.

They probabrbly thought that 'stick a Skoda batch on and noone will notice'. I expect that from the big 3, but definetely not from VW.

Even if I had that kind of money, I wouldn't have bought a Superb. I am not into big luxury cars. Give me a nice sports luxury sedan. BMW 3, Audi A4, Mercedes C class, Lexus IS, Acura TL, VW Passat, Alfa Romeo GT. Thats me.

Finally Skoda has woken up and smelt the coffee. Not much change but something is better than nothing.
However this might boost sales for a while, the car desperatly needs to go in for a complete make over to make it look distinctly different from the Octavia.
