Skoda Octavia

Skoda OctaviaSkoda Octavia is a mid-size German sedan manufactured by Czech automaker Skoda since 1996. The Skoda Octavia was introduced in its first generation in India in 2002 and was accepted very well by the Indian market. The Skoda Octavia second generation was named Skoda Laura in India because the carmaker continued selling first generation Skoda Octavia after the launch of the Skoda Laura. The German automaker has now re-introduced the Skoda Octavia nameplate with the third generation model, which is available with 1.4-litre TSI petrol, 1.8-litre TSI petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine options. The Skoda Octavia comes with both manual and automatic transmissions in India with a starting price of Rs. 13.95 lakhs.
