Skoda Superb Edition 100 Car Review | January 4, 2006

Driven January 2006

Additional Info

That Skoda would be celebrating 100 years of production is not something anyone would've put money on 20 years ago. But here we go, with the Superb Edition 100, a limited run of its flagship saloon, with extra bits and pieces.

There are only going to be 500 of these, with 200 earmarked for our shores, which says something about the confidence with which Skoda regards its presence in the UK.

Exactly who is going to shell out for an 'exclusive' version of an already hen's-teeth-rare luxury Skoda remains to be seen, however. But just in case that who turns out to be is you, here's what you can expect.

The top-spec 160bhp, 2.5-litre V6 TDI will set you back £23,205, just £2,100 over the formerly range-topping Elegance. What that buys you is something called Black Magic pearl effect paint, 'Cubic' 17-inch alloys and twin chrome exhausts.

Inside there's Edition 100 badging, floormats and kickplates, exclusive leather upholstery and a fetching piano-black finish on the dashboard.

Slightly more convincing returns for the 100's hefty premium are satnav, acoustic rear-parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights and cruise control.

Mated to a Tiptronic auto, the 2.5 V6 diesel Superb is a smooth, refined and nicely understated drive, and one that you'll appreciate in any trim.

Fancy coughing up a bit more cash to help Skoda see out their centenary? No, nor do we really.
