bought this Skoda's Octavia onyx in 2017 and will say apart from fuel economy, everything is just excellent, am not going by the service part as we all know it's rediculous, but by far the build quality, the power delivery,the electronic gizmos go they are pretty good, I have ridden it in all kinds of terrains and roads, liked it. now high speed stability is excellent, but has a bit of body roll on high speed corner's, would I like to buy it again in 7 years time.... absolutely yes
It"s a white elephant (the first generation - I don"t know about the latest model) however, it was The Best choice when I bought it and everyone in my family was happy to be driven in the car. I"ve taken it to hills and also drove from Delhi to Ahmedabad and the car is awesome. It"s just that it digs a "Big Hole" in your pocket
We have an old skoda Octavia 2 liter supercharger which give you low mileage. It’s an petrol car we use it for almost 10years. I never get comfortable in another car ever like this. Drove this from Delhi to Chennai in one night one day without major break next day went to office without no tired.
Driving is legendary and best in class and the gearshift is so smooth, But the comfort is very poor for a back seat passenger and less service stations was a major issue and after four years its driving performance is deteriorating a bit
It"s an excellent car with great engine and gearbox! Though not ideal for daily city commutes, it"s a breeze on highways! If driven with care and regular maintenance, it should hold its own for years to come!
