Eagerly waiting for the price... Only thing i am concerned about is the ASS.. i am unsure of whether to buy or not since i don't want to get frustrated when my car needs attention and was neglected or cheated in the name of it...

Wow, that is steep. Could you manage to get a detailed break-up of the price as well as what features the base version has?

The BOLERO screens on such huge car looks really bad. I hope at least the higher ends get a touch screen like the top end versions of the jetta.

Somebody should write a comparison between OCTAVIA and JETTA.

how reliable is this information?. Will Skoda share the price with dealers without announcing it. I doubt it. Sharing it with dealers means in a day or 2 everyone will know it.

On a different note, there is another thread mentioning that skoda is going to extend standard warranty of 5 years on all its cars. This is yet to be confirmed. will be good if anyone can throw some light on it

The build quality of SKODAs never fail to amuse me. Here's one video that I found recently on YouTube. Hope the same build quality continues with the Octavia 2013 too!

The new Octavia looks really nice, well built, and discretely classy interiors. Hope Skoda resolves Harish's issue, then I and many others will think of buying their products, else, sorry.

Which showroom of Mahavir Auto was that sales agent from? 18.33 Lakhs OTR for the diesel base variant is atrocious unless the base variant is also the fully loaded variant. Also, did he mention anything about when will the cars arrive at the showrooms?

Thanks for this. I stay in Jubilee Hills and the last time I spoke to the sales guy from that showroom, they told me the car is only expected in November. They had also taken down my details saying they would call me once they have any further information on the car. I think it's time I pay them a visit .

As for taking bookings, can anyone else from other cities check with their local showrooms and confirm if they too are taking bookings? Sounds to me like these guys are jumping the gun a little bit.

I checked with jai auto gurgaon today. Had gone with my cheque book to entice more details. They flat out refused on taking any money. They said they only know of a November launch. Apparently the owners of all dealerships are being invited for a know the car event sometime in end August early September.

I handed my details and they have promised to let me know as soon as they get any more details.
