Hello Minal !!
Yes the new Skoda Octavia is very much stable and the engine is very powerful. In our ride, it touched a speed of 185 kmph with ease. Person would not feel that the car is running in such high speed. The new Skoda 3rd generation has a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine which is capable of producing 141 bhp of power and has a peak torque of 320 Nm across all the variants. This car also comes with AT variant.

In terms of the engine power and stability, the Skoda Octavia performs extremely well. The company has made sure that stability remains good on high speeds. The 2 litre turbo-charged diesel engine is capable of providing an immense power output of 141 BHP allowing the rider to touch high speeds with relative ease. The suspension system and strong carbon-fibre body make the car stable on high speeds. The maximum torque is 320 Nm, applicable to all variants. Ride the car on high speeds and you are sure not to feel a thing, for jerking is an obsolete affair in the vehicle.
I bought this car in 2014. And I am very happy to tell you that this car has the best speed stability. When you drive this car above than 60 or 70, the automatic gearbox installed in the car helps you out to maintain the speed with high stability. This car has got nice looks and features as well.

Coming to the technology part of it, automatic gearboxes have traditionally known to be less fuel-efficient than their manual siblings. Which single-handedly has kept many Indians away from what would be an automatic choice for our troubled traffic conditions.
The best offer you can find on Maruti suziki’s website only. It’s good that you have decided to buy this car. I am not that happy but yes I am satisfied with the price and the overall exteriors and interiors of the cars. But the best part of this gearbox is the fuel-efficiency. ARAI verifies it at upwards of 21kpl, but in the real world, the on-board computer was indicating over 18kpl, which for an automatic is downright brilliant.
