How about taking the accord, selling it off, buying an RS and keeping the change?

Ofcourse Octavia RS for me. Basically I like European cars for its solid build and safety features, and not much interested in Japanese cars.

honda accord & skoda RS fall in two different category

person buying accord is looking for luxury on wheels & comfort
person buying RS is looking for speed

also i have seen a lot of people complain about accord lacking TC but belive me guys accord does not need TC. iVTEC is a wonderful engine

also once inside accord it does not feel large rather feels like very compact sedan (just like ikon) beautiful car.

The Accord for me. The City has convinced me that anything coming branded Honda is worth much more than its price. The Accord is plain class. The engine is silky, the pick-up is extremely good for an auto, and the comfort is un-beatable. Its a Merc(discounting the various problems that has put Merc in GTO's bad books) for a lot less, and has a better engine. Plus, the Manual is coming. Then lest see what the RS will do, apart from trying to navigate its way through the Accords dust.

No, its at the back of the engine bay, and it, along with the sump, ahve a cover so that they don't get damaged too easily. Rally Sport, na? The back of the engine bay is the only place with space for the TC...
