Skoda Black Edition models revealed
Special edition Skoda models add lots of equipment and attractive finance offers
Last week we reported on a host of new special Skoda Black Edition models, based on the already well-specified SE trim cars. Today, Skoda has released more information including details on standard equipment, pricing and finance offers.
The Black Edition trim (which bears no connection to the Honda Civic Black Edition unveiled earlier this month) is available on every car in the range, from the city-friendly Skoda Citigo, to the hugely practical Skoda Superb and Skoda Yeti. Prices range from £10,090 to £23,990.
Despite the name, a number of the Skoda Black Edition models are also available in Candy White – as well as the distinctive Black Magic Pearlescent paint you see here.
The Skoda Citigo Black Edition features a lengthy list of standard equipment including 15-inch black alloy wheels, tinted rear windows and front fog lights for an upmarket and sporty look. Inside, the Citigo gets Skoda’s Portable Infotainment Device, which gives owners access to the car’s sat-nav and Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity.
The larger Skoda Fabia Black Edition is available in both hatchback and estate bodystyles and starts from £15,490. It adds heated front seats, sat-nav and a DAB radio to the list of standard equipment.
The Skoda Roomster Black Edition is available for the same price as the Fabia and its fitted with a digital radio, sat-nav, 16-inch black alloy wheels and a three-spoke leather steering wheel.
If you’re after one of Skoda’s newer models, try the Skoda Rapid for size. The Skoda Rapid Black Edition and slightly smaller Skoda Rapid Spaceback Black Edition both use Skoda's 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine, and both boast 17-inch alloy wheels. The standard equipment list mirrors that of the Fabia, but prices start from £16,880.
The Skoda Octavia Black Edition is likely to be the biggest seller in the Black Edition range. Available as a hatchback or as a more spacious estate model, the Octavia comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, DAB radio and sat-nav. It's available with tried and tested 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines. Prices for the Skoda Octavia Black Edition start from £21,685.
It's much the same story for the Skoda Superb Black Edition and Skoda Yeti Black Edition models, though the 18-inch wheels are swapped for smaller 17-inch versions. The Superb comes with leather seats, while the Yeti boasts four-wheel drive for added grip in tricky weather conditions. Prices start from £23,630 and £23,990 respectively.
All cars come with a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty, and a host of safety features designed to protect you in the event of an accident. All models apart from the Skoda Yeti Black Edition are available with zero per cent finance offers, and up to three years’ free servicing. Both the Skoda Rapid and Skoda Superb are also available with discounts of up to £2,000.
