With this facelift, Skoda has worked to iron out a few wrinkles in the third-gen Octavia’s packaging. It always had potent powertrain options and a lengthy list of class-leading features. Surprisingly, Skoda has added more luxuries from the Euro-spec facelift model, which are unheard of in the segment. In fact, features like hands-free parking and the new big screen infotainment system are not even offered in the Skoda Superb as well. As SUVs/crossovers are eating into the sales of these D-segment sedans nowadays, they need to lure customers with over-the-top features, and the 2017 Octavia has got that double ticked! Skoda is also actively working to enhance its after sales service, which had a few loose ends earlier. It offers up to four-year additional warranty and economically priced four-year all-inclusive periodic maintenance package. There's a MySkoda app as well, which aims to make the overall service experience more transparent. This will surely help in clearing the mindset about its aftersales and in turn, improving the sales. Skoda Octavia delivers claimed mileage of 14 Kmpl and 21 Kmpl for petrol and diesel. Rest depends on one's driving style and how it is maintained.

Once you buy a car priced upwards of 25 lakhs, be prepared to spend 30-40k for annual servicing! If you use the car judiciously and with care, no major issues will crop up . Mileage should not be a concern if you are buying a diesel version. Resale value of all high end cars is bad! If you buy it, you should hang on to it for 5-8 years and should drive atleast 10-12k kms. every year! Then only you will get back it's worth over the years!

Octavia 1.8 TSI automatic varies between 9 and 13 in city. If you drive on cruise control at 65 in Delhi Ring road you may even land up with 17+! But total average of 12 is more realistic.
If you are more of a person who travels around on the highways, the manual transmission would be more reliable as it has a very simple mechanism as compared to the automatic transmission. The automatic transmission is generally preferred in the city premises where the traffic makes it annoying for a driver to shift gears rapidly. The reliability of the gearbox also depends on the driving style, maintenance and the driving conditions of the vehicle.

Octavia is a very good car no doubt... But if you are someone who loves driving than 1.8tsi is the best in the segment and the DSG AT is another advantage. If you are planning to buy, I guess the new model is on its way and might come in the market by next year
