    Very High pricing

    I haven't bought the car yet. I had a Jeep Compass and C5 Aircross on my mind. I feel the C5 Aircross is priced too high in India. Starting from 35 lakhs on-road and way up to 38 lakhs. People here would go for Endeavour or Fortuner basic model than C5 Aircross. Though the features are more and the brand is French, they must have targeted the Indian consumers with a lower price tag. Compared to C5 Aircross and Jeep it would be better to go with Jeep Compass which has almost the same and even here 4×4 terrain with lesser price compared to C5 Aircross.

    Octavia all time favourite

    Octavia was my favourite car but company spoiled it by introducing over price and no diesel engine option .Diesel engine of octavia was excellent and value for money. I hope company will introducing 2019 octavia again in coming years. Octavia is my all time favourite sedan I desperately want to have Octavia diesel variant
