GTO,

I think it would be a pretty even match if the skoda just had 6" more legroom... a octavia 1.9TDI L if you may, as that seems to be the major disadvantage... i would probably convert my vote from the accord if that was to happen!

I do agree with Rehaan. It looks like nothing on earth.

Not only in India...Even in the United States, the Accord V6 sedan is sold ONLY with an automatic transmission. There is a delicious 6 speed manual on the Coupe though.
