The Skoda Superb is a very well received product in Europe and also in India where it is the market leader.

The Czech automaker is revising the car to keep it inline with its newer offerings.

Automobile Magazine France has accurately rendered the restyled Superb, and through these image, we’re able to catch all the new detailing on the facelift. The Superb is been on sale for four years and the refresh is aimed at rejuvenating the car’s life.

The styling is an evolution of the existing model and the facelift adopts the new family looks, previewed by the VisionD concept. Skoda may not change the mechanical kit, they maybe tweaked to improve fuel efficiency. Minor changes to the interior is also expected.

2013 Skoda Octavia spied

Automobile Magazine have also spied a fully camouflaged top-end variant prototype of the 2013 Octavia and we’re able to figure out new details.

2014 Skoda OctaviaThe headlamps will get sleeker and sport daytime LED running lights. The traditional Skoda grill gets a change of shape as the new logo now sits on the extruded piece of the bonnet. The front bumper may undergo restyling to keep up with the rest of front fascia.

The test mule is too heavily camouflaged to study the changes to the profile but the rear has few noticeable changes.

The chrome strip in the boot lid is missing and the license plate enclosure is shifted to the boot lid from the rear bumper. There is a crease above the license plate and unlike the current model which has a part of its tail lamp on the boot lid, the facelifted version will get a single piece tail lamp unit with the Skoda’s signature ‘C’ shaped brake light element.

The 2.0 litre TDI unit will continue the duties under the hood with few tweaks to improve power output, fuel efficiency and to decrease emissions.

The facelifted Skoda Superb is expected to be unveiled in 2013, while the Octavia replacement is expect to bow at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013.
