front looks a bit like the SEAT LEON..( it appeared in feb top gear issue )..

also the at the b pillar, the door frame actually curves rather than a right angle corner as with most cars..

i think ths could be one of those cars that look better in flesh than in pics..lets wait for its launch

On the Skoda Superb II:
The front headlamp treatment looks a lot like the Civic sold here. The taillamp continues the Laura look in a sleeker iteration. The body takes design cues from Audi & Bangle, & I like the A, B & C Pillar treatment, from what I can see - it impart's a feeling of solidity to the entire design.

All in all - superb.

The first car displayed in this thread is a mess. The front treatment is all wrong. It looks like a current generation Santro grille from it's proportions. Homofocal headlamps do not make a luxury car.

PS: If they named it the "Lolita", then kudos to T-BHP. They're naming it after half you ladies.

Elf strikes..!!

As with the new set of pics posted here, the new Superb looks a lot like a BMW, while the rear set of lamps look very Fiesta-ish. Or was it the other way round??? Now, i'm going round in circles...

Skoda Superb is now hatchback!!?
Doesnt seem to have half as much leg room as the current Superb. I think this might just be a new variant not the Superb

I Think Its Looks Ok, When Compared To Rather Bland Old Model. I Liked The B Pillars ,now Thats What I Call "unique". Bold Enough!

I understand that it is a stretched Octy rather than a rebadged Passat
