Sreekumar menon's review on Skoda Octavia Style Plus 1.8 TSI AT
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 1000
- Pros: Once in your life if you drive a Skoda then you will know what you were missing .The way I looked at cars was redefined when I sat behind the wheel of Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI. I had a Honda city automatic and currently owns a brio automatic apart from the Octavia. After driving Skoda I hate driving the Japanese and Korean and will never think of buying one of them again. Every time you hit the accelerator of 1.8 TSI it will paste a grin on your face. The creature comforts in the car will put audis of lower class to shame for a much lesser money.Spec by spec an Octavia is any day better than Audi A3 and bmw 3 series and has a better back seat space.
- Cons: The car is absolutely silent on road barring the tyre noise from Goodyear nct tyres. Lack of bottle holder space apart from the one liter bottle space in front door and 500 ml bottle space in the rear is a shortcoming I observed. Even the cup holders near hand brake and in the arm rest is designed to hold only sleek aerated drinks.Fittment of normal bulbs in the cabin is also not a done deal which I promptly replaced with LED including the one above back number plate. The whole look of the car elevated to top notch after replacing cabin light to LED and fog lamps to cool blue.
The car is nimble enough to drive in stop gap traffic with DSG responding well and is hoot to drive in open stretches. Family appreciate the back seat comfort and I love the road presence car commands with awesome looking DRL. Anybody on market for a luxury sedan can close their eyes and book the Octavia. Toyota Corolla might be a safer bet for a hassle free ownership but for sheer driving comfort it won't hold a candle to Octavia.with the improving after sales service and four years warranty an Octavia is the definite choice if you are in the market for luxury sedan.
