New Skoda Octavia

 

Expected: End of 2013, Price: Rs 11-16 lakh

 

The Octavia was a raging success when it was launched in India. And now Skoda is all set to relive the success with the all new Octavia. From the spy shots, it looks more premium than the outgoing model but on the other hand it does borrow a lot of its styling cues from several cars in the VW Group. The Skoda Octavia will ride on the MQB platform that underpins the new Golf and Leon. It will be lighter than the second-gen model and will be offered with more premium features for the high-end versions, without compromising the affordable variants that made the car a success in Europe and India.
