Fast & Frugal for sure
I guess this is the 138 BHP unit of 1.4 TSI and not the 120 BHP unit that we have in Jetta 1.4 TSI?

Yes, this is the 1.4 Tsi 140 hp unit.

Official figures say 8.4 secs but in the video, the sprint is recorded in 8.1 secs

None as yet. But it is being derived from various unofficial sources that the new Octavia could be released around Diwali. Maybe with the 1.4 TSI and the diesel unit first, this being my guess.

I doubt that they will launch so many engine options for India. Especially, I doubt whether they will launch 1.4 TSI in two states of tune as mentioned in the article.

August 9 is the unveiling date.I guess launch would be around September.
It's great that Skoda will offer so many options in the Octavia.I guess the price range would go from top-end Rapid all the way to the base Superb.

Well, If it is priced well, I may just be tempted to cancel my Eco Sport Booking and go for the Octavia. The Eco Sport is expected to be delivered by Mid October.

Argh, would definitely have waited for this to compare with the Jetta and make a more informed decision if i had known it was coming this early. Well, still happy with the Jetta but if Skoda comes up with a brilliant price i might, just might be quietly fuming!

I hope they give out the engines/variants they plan to launch, if not the price.
