I am driving a vRS which was a perfect choice for myself as I love speed. It is tough to get similar power at this price point. Similar power of 170 bhp in petrol engine is available only in high end luxury cars.

Regarding driving experience, I have driven the car for 1000 kms on a single stretch without any issue ( including few tea breaks in the middle). It is really fun to drive Skoda and driver enjoys it most. Good leg room and boot space gives really great comfort to passengers.

It is not a city driving car, but if you don't have much traffic on the way to office then you can still use the car everyday. It is not so much fun to drive the car in busy traffic as TSI engine does not enjoy such busy roads. But at the same time, excellent power can help you to cruise through busy traffic and cover the distance faster than other cars. It is really good in handling and overtaking. So enjoy the car at busy roads also at times.

If you are looking for every feature of a luxury car, then you might be little disappointed but I believe that latest model has all the excellent features. For example, Automatic climate control , Cruise Control kind of features are not available in my vRS model which is a little disappointment. On positive side, it has nice music system and speakers/tuners which is fun.

Next topic is about maintenance. Maintenance is ofcourse expensive as car gets older. You will not experience much maintenance work till 5 years or 50,000 kms of the car so it is not a big problem. After 50,000 kms, car needs regular part replacement but cost can be little higher than other brands. So if you are looking to change your car, then plan accordingly.

Sun roof is a quite useful with kids as they enjoy it at times and even adults enjoy it at times. So choose right variant while buying your new car. It is not a must for a car, but it adds lot of beauty to the car and looks great.

I also love the turning radius of this car. I am able to park this car so easily in tough times with less turning radius. So as a driver, I feel lot comfortable to park the car in my crunchy parking space of the apartment. Ofcourse, parking sensors are really helpful. In addition, turning lights help while driving in hills in the night. It also has Day running lights which makes it beautiful on the road.

Headlights are curvy with excellent vision quality in the night.

I will really recommend this car for executives, speed lovers, long drive lovers and everyone who is planning to buy a car around 20-25 lacs price segment. There is no other car comparable in Sedan segment around that price point. So no need to think much if you are planning to buy a Skoda Octavia.. Go for it and Enjoy driving...
