    Far too pricey

    The Skoda should have come in way cheaper to about 25 L on road. There is no sedan between 18-30 L apart from the Elantra. Skoda will lose out on sales and I am sure that if she was priced better people would choose it. The previous generation had the 1.5 TSI available. Now even it does not get a diesel option. Honda civic made a mistake by going for a CVT in petrol and manual diesel and we know how the sales of that turned out to be. Skoda needs to consider again their prices or atleast come up with more engine options. If Kia and Nissan come up with their respective sedan models the sedan market is for sure going to pick up provided the prices are reasonable

    It's a queen to ride on

    This car is full of features which is not in the segment of cars in between 30 to 38 lakhs and it's offers more then a X1, cc 40 etc. it's very superior car. Normal person can also go with the 35 lakhs. Persian as that also offers way more professionalism . Had to see how they treat customer for after market survive let's see all though other wise it's a queen.
