I can totally understand economy manufacturers like say, Maruti, selling outdated models. But certainly not a brand that has premium aspirations.
believe it or not the skoda octavia we have here is still selling in few markets as skoda octavia tour, its shocking but true
here is the model link-
?koda Auto - ?koda Octavia Tour - Look
The octavia tour comes in both wagon & hatch, take a look..

Yesterday, I checked out a Skoda Fabia @ Europa Auto. Its a Pashankar Auto initiative.

The price of Fabia Classic 1.2 petrol has been brought down to 5.97 lacs on road. With a 40000 discount, suddenly this car makes great sense.

Given the horror stories heard about Skoda service, Pashankar Auto should surely come as a confidence booster.

Price List:-
