There’s a new chrome front grille, a distinctive L&K signature on the front wings and 19-inch alloy wheels finished in grey, together with uniquely styled front and rear bumpers. Inside, there’s a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, piano black dashboard appliqués, ambient lighting and aluminium trimmed pedals. There’s a Columbus navigation system, 360-degree cameras, progressive steering, curtain airbags, an uprated audio system and heated front windscreen, too. The new model commands a £2,550 price premium over the Edition models, with Skoda saying that the cost of the options fitted to the L&K as standard would normally cost more than £3,000.
