Had almost been spotted a million times and now again, 2013 Skoda Octavia is caught testing in the state of Maharashtra wearing a MH20 number plate. It seems that the particular test mule is headed from the manufacturing bay of Aurangabad and is sure to officially hit our country soon.
This time wearing the red paint job, Skoda Octavia is hosting a stunning looks under the hat of blackened roof which is slated to kill many birds (and girls too) with the same stone. Black inputs in headlamps, aggressive stance that formed on seeing the front grille, and the new lines cruising on the perfectly blended MQB platform, will make this newbie a very competitive rival in the particular horizon.
The spotted test mule is a diesel variant and will expectedly boast the 2.0L turbocharged TDI whilst of a 1.8L turbocharged TSI in the petrol version. We also expect a 1.6L turbocharged TDI to keep the costing on Indian shores in check that most probably would be for the so called fuel efficient boffins.
Not much revealed about the launch dates, we expect roll-out to happen by the end of this year or maybe in the start of next one.
Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Elantra and Volkswagen Jetta must take this spy shot very seriously, because it reveals a lot about their future!
