SKODA OCTAVIA II GEN (LAURA)• The second generation Octavia was introduced in March

SKODIA LAURA INDIAN SCENARIO• In 2005, Skoda introduced the 2nd generation Octavia.
Unfortunately, they decided to sell the old & new generations side by side, simply badging the latest model as the Laura. This didn't go down too well. In the million+ rupee segment, the informed Indian customer gives a cold shoulder to old products. While the Octavia slowly fizzled out of the market, the Laura did well for itself, despite the premium pricing. The Laura went through a facelift in the year 2009. However, its age vis a vis fresher competition was starting to show. For enthusiasts, the Laura vRS didn't create the same impression as the earlier Octavia vRS. That 1.8L TSI engine is a gem, but the softened new vRS didn't have the raw feeling of the Octavia.
