Skoda creates Black Edition for its eight available models

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 21, 2014

Skoda has introduced eight new ‘Black Edition’ versions of its entire lineup – from the Citigo supermini to the Superb executive Hatch and Estate. The Black Edition is based on the mid-level SE trim and could be availed in either black or white exterior finish. Each of the eight Black Editions will receive at least £1,200 worth of optional extras.

Superb buyers will be eligible to receive over £3,200 of additional specification. Likewise, the customer benefit is up to £1,720, depending on the model. The details vary on each model, but featured equipment includes black alloy wheels, additional black exterior styling details, and sunset privacy glass.

The Black Edition also features ‘Amundsen’ satellite navigation, DAB digital radio, full leather upholstery, cruise control, floor mats and metallic/pearl effect paint.

Skoda expects the Octavia Black Edition -- available in both Hatch and Estate body styles – to be the most-sought among the limited edition models. The Octavia Black Edition could be powered by either the 2.0-liter TDI CR 140PS manual/DSG or 2.0-liter TDI CR 170PS manual/DSG.

The Octavia Black Edition carries a starting price of £21,685. Alasdair Stewart, Skoda Brand Director, remarked that while the Black Edition cars further enhance the “cutting-edge contemporary style” to the entire range, they still retain the brand’s core philosophy of value-for-money.

The full ‘on-the-road’ price list of Skoda Black Edition cars is: Citigo Black Edition: from £10,090; Fabia Black Edition: from £15,490; Roomster Black Edition: £15,490; Rapid Black Edition: £16,880; Rapid Spaceback Black Edition: £18,250; Octavia Black Edition: from £21,685; Superb Black Edition: from £23,630; Yeti Black Edition: £23,990.
