Hi All,

I bought my Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI Automatic Transmission (PETROL) Black this April. So far I must say the journey has been excellent. The vehicle is the fastest in its class and you can really feel the 180PS power when you floor the vehicle. The engine is absolutely smooth coupled with the tiptronic 7 speed DSG gearbox up shift and down shift is a very pleasant experience. The vehicle is fully loaded with all the luxury features you can ask for from and excellent infotainment system to a complete car monitoring system on the speedometer heads up display. The wipers are automatic rain sensing ones and one of my favourite features is the Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic levelling boarded with the AFS (Adaptive Frontlight System) the Light Assistant (Automatic headlight system with light sensor makes) which makes night time driving a pleasure. Steering mounted controls are smooth and the Bluetooth connectivity with any phone and car play with apple is excellent. The braking system consists of a ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistant) which can come in handy in sudden breaking at high speeds as I can tell you from an personal experience where I had to come down from 140 KM/H to a near halt and the car handled it perfectly. The sports mode is really a lot of fun, as soon as you put the DSG in sports and use the manual steering mounted gears it gets the adrenalin running. Stuff like parking sensors integrated with the infotainment system and rear parking sensors make parking really easy even for ladies. Sunroof and the climatronic ac are excellent. Very chic alloys, automatic folding side mirrors and tonnes of boot space add to the value for money. Too many good things to write so what i would suggest is take a visit to the nearest skoda showroom and ask for a quick looksee, I am sure you wont be disappointed.

The only down side for the car is that in the city the vehicle gives about 7.6 to 8 KM/L and on the highway it gives about 12 to 12.5 KM/L which is not all that great for an automatic.In conclusion I can say that this vehicle is an excellent buy if you are willing to overlook fuel economy for comfort and features.
