Earlier as Zac Hollis exclaimed no diesel for India, indeed there is no diesel. But on the contrary, it is getting a more powerful petrol engine. Powering this sedan is a 2.0-litre turbo petrol (TSI) motor that churns 190ps of max power. This engine comes mated to only a 7-speed DSG gearbox. But at the later stage, Skoda could also bring in the 1.5-litre TSI that also does duties in the Volkswagen T-ROC.

Any Rivals?

To being with, the C-segment sedan market in India is a little weak. Hence as of now, it is the Hyundai Elantra the competes with the Skoda Octavia. Skoda has to price it right in order to sell it in big numbers. That said, we can expect the prices to range from ₹22 Lakhs to ₹25 Lakhks both ex-showroom.
