Skoda Lauretta expected to be priced at INR 7.5 Lakhs onwards
The Skoda Lauretta is expected to be retailed at a price of nearly INR 7.5 Lakhs for its petrol variant and one need to fetch out INR 1 Lakh or more if the person opts for the diesel variant, which sums up between INR 8.5 Lakhs - 9.0 Lakhs. Just imagine at this price tag one will be taking home a Czech brand. The car manufacturers in India have by now realized that gone are the times when a consumer was struck for ages with an extremely fuel efficient, low cost and ugly designed car.
Now, he wants a power packed performer, with a decent fuel economy (wouldn’t have demanded but thanks to the soaring fuel prices day by day), flawless exteriors with comfortable interiors along with the front grille that grips the big insignia of the brand name.
