Highly unlikely I think. There is already very little gap between the Octavia Style+ and the base variants of the new Superb. I don't think they want to upscale the Octavia even more as it will cannibalize sales of the Superb.

Congrats! Did you have any options for selecting the interiors? Is the Zeal edition stopped now?

Yesterday night when I tried to start my Octavia, it refused to start. For last couple of days while starting the car I had a feeling that the crank was not perfect. I have called up Road side assistance and the guy is on the way. It looks more like a battery issue. I hope it turns out to be that. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Is the engine cracking but not firing up or the starter itself is not working?

The engine was cranking but was not firing up. Various lights on instrument panel were starting with beeps.

RSA guys visited and connected their battery for jump start. After that the car started at first attempt. I straight way drove the car to the service station. They have taken up the car and confirmed the problem with battery. I have been told that they will have to do some checking and reporting with regard to battery and by tomorrow they will complete the formalities and replace battery.

That's typical Skoda. Meet Pratik Sharma with my reference, he might speed up the process. Just tell him 9500 Octavia, magic words make all people at Torque jump in their place.

Hahaha.... I called up the service adviser yesterday evening and I was told that they have completed the formalities and obtained approval. Batteries which have already been ordered earlier are on the way and they will be receiving them today afternoon. So by evening my car will be ready.

In fact I referred your car to Mr. Jagdish. He was aware of your car and very appreciative of your knowledge about the car!

I have got the car back as promised

After number of battery failures reported here I have some doubts in my mind. Is the problem related to quality of battery or Indian specifications which requires higher capacity battery?

I have been keeping DRL on all the time. I was also keeping headlights in auto mode and using follow me home function which kept the headlights on for 10 seconds after getting off the car. Further in this summer heat AC has always been working hard. Are any of these reasons responsible for battery gone kaput?

When I asked the Service Adviser about this, he was sure that the battery is definitely not under powered. According to him the batteries might have come in one lot and lying ideal in the factory. They must have been used in the car manufactured after quite a few month resulting into reduced battery life. Let us see how the current battery works....

If you are in Bangalore, you can check with Tafe access, hosur road as the SA told me couple of weeks back that they are offering 3 lacs discount.

Edit
: Discount is on Yeti

3 Lakhs on My16 car ? I doubt if it's true even for a my15 car . If true , it's a steal
