And then Skoda will decide to have the older Superb side by side the new one and christen it "LOLITA" as they did, the new Octavia, with Laura, or some other wierd name

The old one looked a LOT classier than this one. This one looks like its borrowed some design cues from the new Fabia's front end. Once again all Skodas are going to look the same.

WTH?? That is so gross! What in the world was Skoda thinking?? I'd be happy if this was the new Fabia sedan, but this new look completely screws up the "Superb" image. I'd be great really if they launch this with another name, keeping the older Superb. In that way, the classy looking old Superb will still be available with lowered prices.

three rotten tomaoes and 5 rotten eggs on the guy who designed the front grille. It would have looked really good if it had been in line with the headlamp line . I mean Shorter and wider.

YUCK!! The front looks like its lifted straight from the Yeti SUV... This is the worst Skoda ever, and so is the Fabia.

Only the Octavia's are cool..

If that is the next Superb,then God save the car.

That photoshop looks pathetic,it looks fit for maybe a Fabia not a Superb by any chance.
