Czech republic automaker Skoda that launched the all new Octavia earlier this year has now discontinued their premium sedan 'Laura' in India. Though the Octavia came as a successor of the Laura, the company was selling both the cars simultaneously in the market till the Laura's stock finally ended.

Now when Skoda is done with entire stock of the Laura, the company wishes to keep its focus on the new Octavia. The Laura was never a volume generator for the company, but was surely an exciting D segment saloon to drive. The sedan was offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. Configured with the 2.0-litre TDI turbo diesel unit, the Laura delivered two power outputs – 108bhp with 205Nm of torque and 138bhp with 320Nm of torque. The 1.8-litre TSI turbo petrol motor was competent to produce a maximum power of 160bhp and a peak torque of 250Nm.

The Laura diesel was coupled with a five-speed manual transmission, while the performance-oriented version was offered with two gearbox options - dual-clutch DSG gearbox and a six-speed manual transmission. The petrol version of the sedan was available with 7-speed dual clutch DSG gearbox and a six-speed manual transmission option. The phased-out sedan Skoda Laura was priced between Rs Rs. 14.55 lakh and Rs. 19.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The company has also removed the Octavia from its official website in India.
