The Skoda company came to India, when the Japanese auto companies had already established themselves
themselves. Therefore, it certainly had some competition and had to establish itself. Skoda entered
the Indian market with a gasoline and diesel model of the Octavia. At that time when gasoline prices
they weren’t that high, I opted for the Octavia 2.0 MPFI, with a fuel efficient gasoline engine.
The car has already traveled more than 140,000 kilometers and its engine still purrs like a cat, with an exceptional
pick up. The 2000cc engine develops almost 195 BHP and one can navigate at 150 km / hour in real conditions.

The 2.0 has now been discontinued and replaced with 1.9 engines. But for my part, I will recommend a
Skoda 2.0 MPFI for power and ease of handling. It’s precision engineering and it will serve you well for years to come.
The Skoda captured the market, but one thing went against it was the maintenance aspect. The car parts were too expensive and the service costs high. The result was that the car lost its market and sales started to decline and that is why a new Skoda is hardly ever seen on the road these days.
But the company nevertheless took a turn and released new models, including an excellent SUV, the Kodaiq, as well as an upgraded version of the Skoda sedans. This seems like a game changer and one can once again see the car return to the roads of India. I hope this time the company is investigating the service-related issues.
