Oh yes, never thought of that aspect! The BMW 3 SERIES and similar give you much more car for your money! Anyway, Skoda is definitely going to be extinct, and this space for premium D sedans is a dying breed in India. Toyota understood it and pulled out its Corolla.

Besides, the Rapid is also expected to get a facelift with the same design language. Once that happens, these cars would no longer be distinguished easily, and we would be back to square one.

25 big ones would be a serious bombshell in terms of price. Completely changes the pricing for the segment. Iím still holding out hope for a 1.5 TSI in the 20-22 price range.

1.5 TSI surely will be in the 20-25 range. 2L TSI will be 25-28 range IMO. We can all guess and hope and wait. Let us see!

I think this is a mistake? Perhaps someone just copy pasted the last gen cars details without thinking. Haven't VW group said they are no longer selling diesels in India anymore. Also how come the new 1.5 tsi is nowhere in sight?

Halogen front turn signals are ugly IMO. Why can't they integrate it with the DRL? They have done this with the superb also, makes it look cheaper. Cost cutting I guess? So, there isn't any hope for the matrix leds then.

Maybe a lower variant like the current Octavia & Superb Style? Detracts big-time from the premium feel of the vehicles. Matrix LEDs should definitely come as standard for a brand new 2022 D1/2 segment luxury sedan!

A very detailed review of the latest generation RS. Usually an autobahn run is included, I'm yet to watch it.

Acceleration Test: 2.0 TSI, a turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 242 hp (245 PS)



Quote:
Despite being equipped with winter tires, the Octavia RS managed to clock a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) time of 6.6 seconds on the Autobahn.
Sprinting all the way to 124 mph (200 km/h) takes 22.6 seconds. So with summer tires, it would be decently fast

So apparently Zac Hollis has confirmed that the launch has now been pushed to Q2 of 2021. Feels like a decent option in this segment is going to be a never ending wait.

As known previously,

Quote:
- The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine should make 190PS/320Nm, same as the Superb.

- 7-speed DSG automatic is likely to be the only transmission on offer.

- Expected launch mid 2021

Interesting to note that pricing will be between 18-23 lacs. That'd make it 23-29L OTR price range. Not bad at all for 2L TSI + 7-speed DSG combo? But then again, launch got pushed - which would probably mean that they are yet to do the price-band discovery, owing to current market situation.
