Elantra is best VFM like everyone said, but won't give u that big car and posh look. Also the warranty and maintainance costs are way cheap compared to the likes of Skoda, Honda...

On the other hand, Skoda is fun to drive, and once u push it, it feels a lot more powerful than the 90bhp it puts out. Very easy to drive thru city and the highways. But don't expect cheap bills if u want it serviced from the dealers. Parts won't come in cheap too. Best thing to do is to get one, and maintain it from a local mechanic (i mean a pro)

Looks like you will be able to get Elantra CRDi base model at about the same price as a used Skoda. I will tend to opt for Elantra due to the 2 year warrently, good support network and maintenence.

You may want to ask the dealer to provide you with the car for a long drive over the week end to see if you are comfortable with the seating. Good luck with your new Elantra or Skoda

If you are planning to sell it off in couple of years, resale becomes big factor. What is resale of Octavia against Elantra?

Just saw in AutoCar. There is a 1.35 L discount on Elantra going on now. Think this makes it real VFM.
