Tough choice...But I can tell you why I dont like either of those cars

1. Toyota Corolla - Peoples car image (globally), flimsy build and a non-luxurious ride (especially on Indian roads)
2. Skoda Octavia - Rear seat is not comfortable especially keeping in mind the size of this car, Petrol engine is too lethargic.
3. Chevy Optra - Well...its a Daewoo, horrid gearshift, coarse engine, I hate the looks
4. Lancer 1.8 - NO slick 5 speed gear box, deteriorating build quality (compare with the Lancers of even teh 2000 vintage).

Buttttttttttttttttt If I HAD to choose one of these, it would be the Toyota Corolla. Its the fastest and the quickest, is Japanese, the most fun to drive,has huge potential for modifications and will last me forever. Beside the fully loaded ones have awesome interiors too!

I chose the Octavia bcoz, it has the most composed handling off the lot. It comes with ABS which makes braking that much safer.

It also has the biggest engine in it's class that makes cruising effortless.

I'm not really interested in the performance of these cars btu, i'd love to see these cars battle it out on track. Now how about an Indian verision of "Best Motoring" C+ class Challenge!!!

Skoda Octavia for me! reason.. its Handsome, equipped nicely, quality aint bad either, diesel version give awesome fuel efficiency.:D

Come baby. Come to my arm.
Have you driven an OPTRA lately???
I agree gearshift is no great shake.
Coarse engine??? How/why do you say that???
Looks, you don't like... that's a personal choice. Nothing to say on that?
P.S. I don't know how much more it's a Daewoo. Italian body design... English suspension... Australian engine... A proper b*****d version..I agree.

I won't vote for any of those above.
Drive an Optra (1.8, cause I haven't driven a 1.6) and then decide.

Well,i dunt like that Corolla thingy too much.
Lancer,well if u gimme a 5-speed manual with better quality interiors.
Optra wud be my 2nd choice.Like the macsuline character of the car.

Well,this leaves me with the Skoda which ofcourse has the best od the looks and great suspension ment for typical Indian roads.

So Skoda it is for me......

Octavia(Diesel) it is. Build, FE, Decent performance, Good ride and handling. And looks good too(second only to Lancer).
