The Skoda Octavia Laurin & Klement Edition has arrived in the United Kingdom where the model has a starting price of 26,570 GBP.

Originally unveiled during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March, the new top of the line version of the Skoda Octavia, the Laurin & Klement, is now available for order in the United Kingdom too. The version can be ordered in both body styles, hatchback and liftback, and it’s adding the brown Alcantara leather interior, the special badges, the L&K logos, stitching and door sill trims, the illuminated front and rear footwells, the electrically adjustable driver’s seat, adaptive cruise control, Canton audio system, lane assist, park assist and much more.

A choice of two engines can be made when ordering the Skoda Octavia Laurin & Klement Edition, the 1.8 liter TSI petrol, with its 178 HP, or the more frugal 2.0 liter TDI diesel, with 148 HP. The units can be mated to a standard six-speed manual or to an optional DSG automatic double clutch transmission. For the 1.8L TSI, prices start at 26,570 GBP (hatchback) and 27,375 GBP (Estate), while for the 2.0L TDI, prices start from 26,410 GGBP (hatchback) and 28,665 GBP (Estate).
