The ‘Black Edition’ cars: Skoda launches eight new models in one day

18th July 2014 Print
Skoda Octavia Black Edition

The debut of eight new models in one day usually only happens at a motor show, but Skoda has done it with the launch of the ‘Black Edition’ cars.
A striking and ‘high-on-style’ limited edition model is now available on every one of Skoda’s award-winning cars – that’s everything from the Citigo supermini to the Superb executive Hatch and Estate.
Based on the already well-specified mid-level SE trim, the Black Edition range is available in either black or white exterior paint*. Each gets at least £1,200 worth of desirable optional extras, with Superb buyers benefiting from more than £3,200 of additional specification. The customer benefit is up to £1,720 depending on the model.
The exact detail of the enhancements varies by model, but examples of equipment that features in the Black Edition range includes black alloy wheels, additional black exterior styling details, sunset privacy glass, ‘Amundsen’ satellite navigation, DAB digital radio, full leather upholstery, cruise control, floor mats and metallic/pearl effect paint.
Likely to prove extremely popular is the Skoda Octavia Black Edition, available in both Hatch and Estate body styles and with a choice of 2.0-litre TDI CR 140PS manual/DSG or 2.0-litre TDI CR 170PS manual/DSG powertrains. It’s priced from just £21,685.
The full ‘on-the-road’ price list of Skoda Black Edition cars is:

Skoda Citigo Black Edition: from £10,090
Skoda Fabia Black Edition: from £15,490
Skoda Roomster Black Edition: £15,490
Skoda Rapid Black Edition: £16,880
Skoda Rapid Spaceback Black Edition: £18,250
Skoda Octavia Black Edition: from £21,685
Skoda Superb Black Edition: from £23,630
Skoda Yeti Black Edition: £23,990

Alasdair Stewart, Skoda Brand Director, commented: “The Black Edition cars further enhance the cutting-edge contemporary style to the entire range of Skoda passenger cars, yet still have our core philosophy of value-for-money motoring at their centre.”
* Citigo, Roomster and Rapid are available in black exterior paint only
