if its between 8-9.5 lac range then its not my preference

we are also expecting fiat 500 at that price,which in my opinion iis a better option, cause its also a classic design(if it really come within the same price range)

Default Hyderabad prices

The following are the Hyderabad showroom prices:

Variant ---> Ex-showroom ---> On-road prices
--------------------------------------------------
Classic ---> 6.58 Lacs ----> 7.43 Lacs
Ambiente ---> 7.40 Lacs ----> 8.35 Lacs
Elegance ---> 7.95 Lacs ----> 8.96 Lacs

Skoda priced these to later decrease them or what ? As someone on this board mentioned earlier they are definitely smoking weed. I have to go get my money back I paid for the booking. What a waste of time.

Please let us know if anyone else heard different prices than these.

Sorry, my bad. Just went through some of the previous posts and learnt that it has the PD tech indeed.

I would rather pick SRV, I think cheaper than this, has better road presence.

As I mentioned in my earlier post too, these are the prices dealer told me. It is rediculous and Skoda will soon start offering discounts to clear stock. At these prices, it is wise to go for SX4 or VTEC or CEDIA...

skoda has gone MAD. please note skoda needs to THINK before pricing. 8.9 . . they are entering Optra / Corolla range. Actually one can just put a little more money and buy the Innova or the octi.
Busa. . . you were right. . .these people need to think before. the top end 8.9 will NOT SELL.

Skoda pricing is like a SODA but difference being this SODA(SKODA) contains SODA + WINE + WHISKEY + BEER + RUM + VODKA + GIN + Totally stoned PRICING TEAM.

I would rather buy SRV at that pricing.
