The Octavia is back in India in its iteration. The D segment sedan a lot of promise with a complete to both the exteriors and interiors on the Vision D concept. The new car from carmaker has a seeming resemblance to the European Skoda Rapid, but is of the two and also a brand in itself.

Skoda has moved towards lines and more rounded to give the new Octavia a classier, and more modern feel. It LED DRLs and front grille vertical stats that the front look aggressive. The Octavia is also substantially and wider compared to the Laura, also means that it has cabin space for the passengers.

The tailgate has the two diagonal lines we first saw on the Rapid along C-shaped tail lamps and lamps and turn-blinkers in the middle.

The have significantly improved faux wood trim and theme, but the overall design is and like any other VW group The top-end variant gets music system, front and parking sensors, six airbags, ESP, traction control, mounted audio controls, seat for the driver with function, rear AC vents and sunblind. The rear row gets leg room; however, like the under thigh support is not

There are ample cubby that double-up as bottle at the front, while the space in the armrest can be adjusted to fit any size of or even cup. We are glad Skoda has retained the feature lets you access boot from inside the car, few more cars in India get feature.

The Skoda Octavia is available in trims– Active Ambition and The 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel TDI 141bhp and 320Nm of torque is across all trim levels. The version with an oil burner a six-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic as a standard fitment, while it is an extra for the Ambition trim.

The and Ambition petrol are powered by TSI unit that has a power of 138bhp and 250Nm coupled six-speed manual transmission. The petrol on the other hand a 1.8-litre TSI that is good to out 177bhp and 250Nm through DSG transmission.

The Elegance petrol is also the variant to get the independent rear which drastically improve the and handling of the car. The rest of the get two torsion beams at the rear are actually sufficient in most The decision to use independent suspension on the petrol hints that plans to bring the vRS Octavia to soon, as it uses the same four-cylinder mill.

Skoda has the hydraulic steering from its for a new electrically assisted one – it is light and but the feedback is not that great. The is tuned for comfort, so there is a amount of body-roll at high but the Octavia takes care of and small potholes with The ground clearance of the luxury is also decent to manage speed-breakers and jumbo-sized potholes, but has to be slow to avoid the bumper the ground.

The handling of the Octavia is positive; you can this car through the corners hard. It grips through the at high speed and there is under steer, despite being a heavy front-wheel-drive The only issue is that the will make rest of the a little uncomfortable.

Overall, the Skoda Octavia is a product which offers quality and technology, but with a premium price tag – especially for the variants.

Skoda has strategically the car before the start of the festive with a competitive starting It competes with the Hyundai Toyota Corolla Altis, Cruze, Renault Fluence, Jetta and others in the D-Segment. the new car will have to face from SUVs and MUVs the XUV500 and Toyota Innova are slotted in same segment.
