The moment i entered the house i saw it was covered with the car cover as always my uncle just treats and cares his cars like they are million dollar smokey lamos. After 3hr journey from mumbai-Pune i was not in a mood to look at it went straight asleep. I woke up in the morning and just came yawning out from my room to balcony and Dam i see her getting washed by my cousin and there i fall in love with her. Immediately went running towards her and visited Skoda Website for Specs

Back to the story
After the was getting completed i was eager to fell the vehicle. My Uncle came towards me and said "Chalavnar ka?" in marathi means "Want to ride?
I had a grin like a small school boy offered a Candy.
I rushed inside the vehicle and the first thing i did was adjust the seat according to my posture the best thing was The Seats was 12way electrically adjustable that was something new for me i adjusted the lumber support as it was very comfortable. the started the engine and the MFD indicated me fasten the seat belt. Their was empty road with quite good corners.I was ready to test this machine my uncle gave me a stare and said "put all of your skill let me see what are you up to". Damm i press the accelerator pedal a bit and i felt like i was on a roller coaster launched form its Pad. my leg went towards the left to find the clutch and my dumbness i forgot it was an AT. The moment i fit the corner i could Literally feel the ECS (Electronic Stability Control) working on brakes to help we maintain the lane and avoid me drifting the car out of control, breaking was Fabulous. I noticed the a 2 small leaver on the steering wheel as asked what was it uncle said Pedal shiftier skoda call them gear shift control on steering wheel, i resembled them to one in Ferrari(My bad) but i felt them Awesome as i tested them for Top speed run ohh wait i dint tell you that before finishing the ride i took her to Spine road it was was long stretch(7-8 km) road minimal or No traffic- i spot on managed to hit the indicated speed of 180 Km/hr i could have got more of it but i did not. Coming over to the conclusion the vehicle has got the Best in class ride and Handling ( i have driven Elantra as well) the Build Quality is Super strong and sturdy i am in love with it since then. The only thing my uncle said was that this all has a Cost to it(vehicle cost & service) but if you ask me i am ready to empty all my accounts to get her parked in my parking lot and i will.
