Bingo hkanitkar , but yes even twister has a valid point . How can the fuel lid be on the other side !!!! Ok guys , keep on guessing ........ though, I would still say it looks very much like an octavia .

its definitely not the new Civic. the civic tail lights are different and also its doesnt have such a prominent wheel arch. looks like the new octavia to me.

maybe for the Indian market the routing is done through the left.

it depends from market to market.

Indian Octavia's have the fuel lid on the left side whereas other markets may have it on the right side.

Compare our very own Normallycrazy's Octavia with the white one below :

Thanx V12,

AS all Gm cars have it on the right i was assuming same for the Octy.. its surely the Octy then no doubt.. and must be the RS since he flew ahead of HK..

EDIT.. Even NCs car has it on the tight buddy

It's not the new Sonata or the Civic. they both have squarish fuel lids and even the door handles are diff.

Sonata


Civic Sedan


Can't be a Skoda as they usually have their fuel lids on the right hand side.
