Skoda's first Indian model was a quiet-looking sedan that sold on the strength of its build quality, reliability and frugal diesel engine - the same engine
that gave Skoda the reputation of being a great diesel engine manufacturer. This sedan has been the iconic product for Skoda and the company has been
extremely successful with the Octavia.
That is one strong reason why Skoda has once again introduced the Octavia brand. The new generation Octavia is bigger, powerful and even better in all
other aspects. This is one of the most powerful cars in its segment and its design is futuristic.
Skoda's new design language can be seen in the Octavia and it is one of the most elegant looking sedan too. The exterior styling is just immaculate and it
can overshadow sedans that are a lot more expensive then it. It has daytime running lights that make it look extremely stylish and upmarket. If that isn't
enough, the interior styling too is top notch. It has a spacious interior and the features list on it is long, longer than its cousin, the Volkswagen
Jetta. The best part of the Octavia is its boot. This is the only sedan to have a hatch like opening for its boot, this makes it very easy to access and it
is the largest boot in its segment.
The diesel engine, on paper, produces a 140bhp, but it is surprisingly quicker and drivable. Added to this is the capability of the Octavia diesel to
return highway fuel efficiency figures that will shame most small cars. The 1.8-litre turbo petrol has its own legion of fans, especially when it used to
be under the hood with a whooping power of 180 bhp. If you're looking for a driver's car with great build quality and lots of prestige, look no farther
than an Octavia.
