Value for Money
As one unlocks the car from its remote, it doesn't make annoying noises. Its a decent click. You open the door and feel the strong built and you start feeling from then on that Skoda is serious about safety. As you sit on the drivers seat you have the flexibity to adjust the Steering wheel as well the driver's seat to your own comfort. Electrically controlled rear view mirrors make sure you have to do none other than moving a bit of your right hand to adjust those. Ready to drive, you put in the key and crank start your car. It picks up very nicely, and as it picks speed, you continue to like it more. At higher speeds also, it continues to be very stable. No wobble what so ever. The AC is just perfect. The integrated music system is a heart winner. The leg room is the best amongst the competing cars. The car has potential to compete with a TATA pick up if you folded the rare seats to use its boot space. That's a bit exaggeration, but truly it is never short of space.
Talking of safety, the car has pretensioned seat belts and dual air bags, ABS added to the fact that the car has been mad quite strongly to start with and no compromise has been done on quality of the materials used.
Its secure like a Vault. Each time you put in the ignition key, a new code a generated to match up the credentials of key put in. If broken in, it will get locked and become immobile. The stereo is also the secured in the same way, and even if someone manages to steal it, he would never be able to play it.
Maintenance wise, the frequency of the trips you need to make to the service centre is much lower than for its counterparts. First service is due after 7500Kms, to give you a hint.
The sense of style only adds to the value. In the nutshell, the car offers everyhting you could ask for in this segment except for the fact that it is priced higher than any other car in the segment, so being on the expensive side. Its fuel economy doesn't shoot through the roof but is decent enough givent the fact its a comlete quality package. All in all, those who want a car they want to fall in love with, this is the one.safety, performance and stylefuel economy
