Think I'd have to see it in the flesh to pass judgement properly, though the estate looks like the new Megane estate from that angle.

The front end is positivly hideous....makes the old bug eyed Scorpio look tame http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif
Otherwise it don't look too bad http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

Looks a bit of a Laguna , Xara, Lancia whatever cross.
I am afraid we are going back to the old one shape fits all senario.
Won't be too bothered though as I won't be buying one anyway. I like my Aero too much. Even looked at and RS6 and thought the inside was too ordinary. Ok it has the power but it has to have more than that for £58k. Maybe Skoda will do a cheaper RS6 in the Octavia range. http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

I will take the new B6 Passat over that. At least the VW grill is less in your face.

Doesn't that first pic resemble an A4 just a bit?

The back looks like a volvo V40 and the side looks just a bit like an alfa sportwagon. The front is just a bit bland though, but you could see how it could look mean with a few tweaks.

From the first pic, looks as though you would need a ladder to top up the screen wash. http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif
Well, I think the Saloon version looks alright - bolder than the current version.
The estate looks a bit naff. Too slab sided and similar to that Citroen. Is it a C5? I don't know, it's sooo bland I can't remember.

God that is disgusting. And I speak as a long time Skoda enthusiast.
That would have made a better Superb than Octavia. Really can't see that ever appearing in vRS form really, looks to much like a luxury limo than an allround family/sports/utility saloon.
