Paddle shifts on the 1.8tsi is Confirmed. Motor_breathing's car is at the dealer's yard, and he has confirmed that the steering wheel is from the superb.

In the third pic, from what I can see, they have increased the size of the screen too! Is it the columbus system?

Nope. It is the Bolero but with a larger screen for the Smartlink support. I suppose the Bolero HU comes with 2 sizes.

Probably the one on this video:



Had it been the Columbus, the top-right button would have read NAV but this one says SETUP. Pic zoomed in:

This is the Columbus:

Looks like the Anniversary Editions will now have the new 6.5" Bolero as compared to the 5.8" screen earlier. See the link and highlighted bits:

http://www.automotiveworld.com/news-...-eco-friendly/

"Fantastic connectivity solutions are also available for the Octavia, Rapid/Rapid Spaceback and Yeti as part of the 2016 facelift. These models will come with SmartLink upon request, covering the standards MirrorLinkTM, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SmartGate is also available as an option for the Octavia, Rapid/Rapid Spaceback and Yeti.

The Octavia will feature the Bolero and Amundsen infotainment systems with larger, higher resolution screens: the displays have increased in size from 5.8 to 6.5 inches – 800480 resolution. In addition, the Columbus infotainment-navigation system can be operated from the back, again using the specifically designed app."

Unsure why Skoda India is not milking the bigger screen and the Android Auto / Apple CarPlay compatibility more. This could be a real cherry on the cake for their target buyers. With this addition the Octavia is now quite future-proof for the next 5 years at least. It has everything in terms of safety, comfort & features and looks. Now only (huge) cons remain that pesky gearbox and the service experience!

Holy guacamole! The anniversary edition costs 27L+ on road in Bangalore?

I was under the impression these were selling at about 22L. I definitely need to spend more time on TBhp. Glad I didn't walk into the showroom and make a fool of myself.

I am sure it's definitely worth the money but just my personal view is I wouldn't plonk 27 on a Skoda.

If this is the case, has the Superb touched BMW 3 series territory? I wonder how that's working out for Skoda.

Can you ask your dealer to send you some pictures of the interior? And put an end to the misery of screen size.

Cancelled my Hyundai creta booking (don't ask me why. Wife loved it and I hated it) and once I heard about this car just put the foot down n booked the blue 1.8 TSI 😊 to the guys who are on the fence well it's got 8 airbags, 180 horses, a 590L trunk not to mention that crazy sound system... That's A4 n C class safety n performance specs at half the freakin' price not to mention it is petrol which is now great for the environment and free from recall

Agree. Motor_breathing, when convenient will you measure the diagonal screen size?

Is it still 5.8" or 6.5" now?

It is definitely bigger, now that I notice the smaller bezel. Must be to accommodate RVC with PDC display. Also does it support CarPlay? A pic of the steering will also be helpful to us potential 'swappers'. Do the number plate lights come with LED bulbs?
