Both cars are of differet segments and there is a huge price difference (Rs.11 lakh) too. If we talk about Skoda Karoq, it has turned out to be an SUV with a lot of potential. It packs a very spacious and upmarket cabin to keep the family happy, an engine that strikes the right balance between fun and practical, and a suspension setup already ready for Indian roads. The only place where the Karoq can fall short is the looks. Not because it's not a good looking SUV, but because it lacks the traditional muscular flavour which our market generally goes for. The only thing which can overturn this issue can be the cost. On the other hand, Skoda Octavia is available with its RS variant only. The RS is likeable and has a proper personality. It’s not a soulless machine with four wheels and an engine. It feels alive, and when you’re driving it, makes you feel alive too. It’s focussed when you want to have fun, laidback when you want to chill, spacious enough for the family, and is loaded with tech. There’s not much wrong with the Octavia RS, really. Then there’s the fact that the RS is practically a Lego set in terms of what you can add to it if you want to jump up the power scale. If you loosen your purse strings, the motor has enough mod potential to shame sports cars. You may compare both the cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity.
