Allright people.seems that this car is finally in the showrooms.

Today saw a light greenish silver car in the dehradun showroom of Skoda.Its already been bought by the owner of the showroom and he's running it all over near the place where i live.The car's got definite road presence and looks really good too.

And its FAST!!

You mean to say the Diesel's going to be a better seller? Is that only because it's a diesel or because it's a better car somehow?

The photographs on the website show a left hand drive! Skoda still cannot get a local photograph or even choose a country which has a right hand drive.. Cut and paste job..

Some illustrations in this website do not necessarily reflect Indian specifications and may not be available.
Interestingly, the website was developed by an Indian company. I guess Skoda can't be arsed to take a few beauty pictures.

Without some of the features, the car just won't be as nice, will it? That's why they've got to show a car that has ALL the features. And if that means showing a European car........

So which are those features that aren't available here that you can see in the European pictures?

Hey, I'm just saying. Because someone also mentioned the disclaimer on the website that mentions that not all features displayed are available in the Indian version etc. etc.

And since I haven't seen the Indian car yet and don't even know the confirmed features, I can hardly compare!
