To me, that is not the 2008 Laura/Octavia. The Laura replacement is atleast a few years away and that doesnt look like a cosmetic update anyway.

Could be the next Superb or a possible design reject.

Interesting so the new Superb will be a notchback as well rather than a sedan? Would that actually work in the segment it has to compete in?
