Skoda review: luxury sedan

The Skoda company came to India, when the Japanese auto companies had already established themselves

themselves. So it certainly had some competition and had to settle down. Skoda entered

the Indian market with a gasoline and diesel model of the Octavia. At that time when gas prices

they weren’t that high, I opted for the Octavia 2.0 MPFI, with a fuel efficient gasoline engine.

The car has traveled more than 140,000 kilometers and its engine still purrs like a cat, with an exceptional

pick up. The 2000cc engine develops almost 195 BHP and one can navigate at 150 km / hour in real conditions.

comfort. The car handles very well on the road and many times none of the other Honda cars.

Ford or Toyota can beat you on the road.

The car is a six-speed car with ABS and power brakes that come standard. On

In addition, your air conditioning has an electronic temperature control that makes driving a pleasure. Even at low altitude

this size.

The car seats 5/6 adults and is upholstered in plush. Plus your tripmeter

And the gauge is an absolute delight as you can easily calculate your car’s fuel efficiency. However

The only weak point of the car is the clutch which may require a change often, but it will depend on how

you drive the car.

The 2.0 has now been discontinued and replaced with 1.9 engines. But for my part, I will recommend a

Skoda 2.0 MPFI for power and ease of handling. It’s precision engineered and will serve you well for years to come.

The Skoda captured the market, but one thing went against it was the maintenance aspect. The car parts were too expensive and the service costs high. The result was that the car lost its market and sales started to decline and that is why a new Skoda is hardly ever seen on the road these days.

However, the company took a turn and released new models, including an excellent SUV, the Kodaiq., As well as an upgraded version of the Skoda sedans. This seems like a game changer and one can once again see the car return to the roads of India. I hope this time the company is looking at the issues related to services.
