New Skoda Octavia price revealed, starts at Rs 13.5 lakh
The new Skoda car Octavia has got a price tag and it is a decent one that the auto analysts believe will fetch some inspiring sales after the launch. The new Skoda Octavia 2013 model year car is highly awaited and its price disclosure is a win win situation for the car maker as the car will have a positive impact on its sales once it is launched in March. The new Skoda Octavia in UK is £15,990 (in India Rupee equivalent it is Rs 13.5 lakh) and this price tag makes the car highly affordable as well as quite lucrative. Not only the new car has stylish looks but it also has grown a little bit and offers space to the occupants. The car will be available in three models S, SE and Elegance and will have two petrol and two diesel engine options.
With Skoda officially declaring the price of the car it is quite sure that it has high intentions to offer the best possible price and specifications to the car buyers. The price has certainly enabled the car to have an upper hand in terms of sales. The prime rivals of the cars in India will be Hyundai Verna, Maruti SX4 besides others and it seems that the price tag in India will be around Rs 10-11 lakh and this will enable the car to position itself well in the segment.
In UK, the top model 2 L TDi Elegance will be sold at a price of £21,990 or Rs 18.5 lakh. With a UK launch, pending launch on March 16, the car is in fact the first car on the radar of auto analysts this year. The car is believed to land in India sometime towards the end of this year, probably this Diwali and it is expected to rule its segment once it is launched.
