Along with a new Concept car and new versions of the Octavia, Skoda is bringing a number of special edition models to this year’s Geneva Motor Show. They include Laurin & Klement versions of Octavia sedan and estate, and three new Monte Carlo editions based on the Citigo, Yeti, and Rapid Spaceback.
The highlight of the new Skoda Special Edition models is, of course, the Laurin & Klement Octavia. Named after the founding father of the brand, this treatment includes 18-inch aluminium wheels, bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime driving lights and LED rear lights. In the interior there is a 4-spoke multifunction steering wheel, leather/Alcantara seats in elegant brown, the CANTON sound system and newly-designed decorative trims.
Available engines for the Skoda Octavia Laurin & Klement include the 1.8 TSI/132 kW petrol engine, the 2.0 TDI/110 kW and the 2.0 TDI/135 kW.
As for the Monte Carlo models, they all get the same sort of features on the outside, including black aluminium wheels in sizes 15 to 17 inches, dark-tinted rear and back side windows (SunSet) and distinctive design features in black. Inside, Monte Carlo models have a special red-stitched steering wheel, black interior and sports seats with distinct fabric design.
The Skoda Yeti and the Rapid Spaceback Monte Carlo also get a black roof, which the Citigo doesn’t get. Joining the Fabia and Fabia estate, these three cars expand the Monte Carlo range to five models.
