225 plus in a stock Indian RS seems difficult.

i own and accrod V6 but if you just compare the power the RS beets the Accord but then there are many things which need to be seen which I have given below maybe depending on individual taste one can judge which ones better....

1) the accrod v6 has got the convinenece of being an automatic with good power which is the best part.
2) the avergae of the accord is very bad luckily i get a decent average of around 7.5 to 8 KM/Litre from my accord.
3) the accord is much more spacious the the RS the worst part about the Scoda are the rear seats which are too cramped and very very un comfortable.
4) RS also comes with very very good pricing and also very good colours.
5) Accrod s basically for all age groups as it has good that verstaile look which is missing in RS its bascially more of rthe youth and Mid aged.
6)

I am based out of US to return soon to homeland. I was researching the the car I'd buy and saw this thread. I have seen Skoda only on paper but based looks and preception I'd definately go for it.
Honda Accord and Toyota Camary are stock cars in US. Its like driving a beefed up Maruti 800 with leather seating and other bells and whistles being on Delhi road
When I finally get it I'd proclaim Skoda to be the poor man's BMW in a 3rd world country !!

the skoda Rs definately...it has that tank like charm to it.....solid and good build quality plus all the other features of the RS (no point listing them here)......agreed the Accord may be more comfortable or luxurious but who needs that

Firstly the Accord V6 is faster then a RS. Correct me if i am wrong but i read that some where a Accord 3.0ivtec being faster.

@ GTO you cannot put alloys from any where except skoda it will void your warranty.

Well Revv that true only for skoda. Other manufacturers let you put alloys but Skoda doesnot *** and their alloys cost 50K and tyres 40K so if you upgrade to 16 inch for Rider 15 it will cost you approx 89k thats what dealer told me.. anywayz the alloys i am talking about are the spider ones..
