Laura was a good nice of good looks, luxurious a powerful engine and a good brand name, but somehow the car ever kick in.

There was a desperate need of a for the Laura, as all other competitors either new or were a facelifted The car was certainly good but could match the aura of the Octavia.

The new gen 2013 Skoda Octavia was worldwide in December’12 and it’s in within 8 months, which is a good progress. The other for its quick entry into the market was Skoda’s recent aim of into the worldwide top 10 selling list with its new Octavia, and cannot do it without selling amounts in India.
