Pros : good looking,good performer,robust built typical european sedan.

Cons : skoda shield service,maintanance costs

Taking on cruze,skoda although does not match in pace with cruze,but the way she drives..through the corners and the ride comfort is amazing..cruze with 33kgms of torque on wheels does not possess traction control..but laura braking from even 160kmph is a kool stop.secondly the space she offers both front and rear is excellent and luxurious for family of 5.but in cruze inside is totally cramped..especially the rear seats height is reduced for its coupe designing.the seating inside is not worthy a15lk car.the build quality is of high quality in laura . whereas  in cruze you can feel the rattles in pothholes..mileage is equally poised for both avg 13-14 kms/l. top speed acheived by me in laura is 185kmph....i still believe she can race under the shades of 200 if the foots are rite on the pedals...i heard that cruze can cruise till 210-215kmphs..overall you can really be a proud owner of a laura for its brand value..service and maintainance is bit hot time for laura whereas gm offers cheap maintanance and better service .....resale is obviously good for laura comparing cruze............................there is no comparison with jetta since they both are the same except for their looks and badge name...altis is out of picture with 1.4 ltr which can be easily overtaken even by a 8lk car...

    i always loved the efficiency of this 1.9l laura diesel but the design seems to be a bit odd compared to recently launched cars like cruze,civic otherwise itz the only car to give features of the upper d-segment

    yep akshay..the looks may not be sportier moreover its premium looking...thats wat v expect when we r buying a car worth of 15lks.but dynamically designing is greater compared to cruze civic

    Great build quality, amazing fuel efficiency of 2.0L TDI Auto @ 18km\ltr highway average & 12km\ltr in the city(more than what one can expect 2ltr engine car) most importantly very good driving experience, turbo kicks in 1700rpm promising you power when you decide to push the throttle. overall good value for money car.
