Skoda Fabia User Reviews

Reviewed on Jul 18, 2011

Rated 4.0/5

The Skoda Fabia offers decent riding abilities with spacious cabin and besides these it offers easy controls and functions. The Fabia is quite roomy with well equipped materials, but still it offers dull interiors. Fabia is one of the best in Skoda class with exclusive and intuitive features associated with the car. Performance:- In short we can describe the performance of the car gains decent ride but still something is missing. There is couple of ageing 1.2 L with three cylinder petrol engines, but still it requires better torque level. The other units of supercharged and turbocharged 1.6l offer 74bhp, 89bhp and 104bhp. There is complete lineup offered with fuel slipping diesel cylinders of 1.2 L. Ride and Handling The riding of the Fabia is good by handling disappoint the driver. Skoda Fabia is quite huge but by means of supermini standards and thus controlling the car on tight turns sometimes become difficult. On the patched roads the handling of Fabia get disturbs resulting poor riding facilities as well. Even, the front body of the car is lean towards these results in vague gearshift and steering problems.

Skoda Laura User Reviews

Now with the new looks and loads of goodies the new Laura is a better package. I particularly liked the automatic version as it simplifies driving around in city esp. Hyderabad.The suspension felt strong and is tried and tested on Indian roads. The gear box is fabulous and and very smooth and you even have an option of manual shift even in the automatic version. The pumpe duse engine may be slightly noisy but a great performer/excellent fuel eco(better than CRDI). The VW Jetta uses the same engine in India. A very useful feature is the parking sensors at the rear. With a number of dealers, ASS wont be much of a hassle. I have booked the Laura Ambiente AT as it is a great VFM. Other cars that I looked at were VW Jetta AT, Honda Civic. Toyota Corolla... Though Jetta is v good but over priced. Civic just looked like some video game with low GC due to soft suspension, Corolla went down on looks and styling. Overall, Skoda Laura is a great car and is fun to drive. It also comes with a 2 yr unlimited warranty.

Hello, Have been driving a the Skoda Ocatavis 1.9 TDi for the last year or so. Well to begin with the car is fantastically built. it sticks to the ground at high speeds, never do you once feel it is becoming unstable. The front seats are very very comfortable which is good for the driver especially on long drives. Great leg room.(no electronic seats in this variant) The engine is quite powerful, touches 140 in no time. those of us who are not used to driving such powerful vehicles have to make sure you do not over speed on long winding roads, the built is so good that it gives you no idea of speed. Power steering is also perfectly set, not too light. The tires are also quite good. suit the cars needs. The doors open wide, easy entry and exit. Let me warn you, the Air-conditioning is amazingly powerful, have set to set it on medium even in the hot afternoon. Speed setter for wipers in the intermediate mode, works for me, also the small display in the dashboard, tells you about the avg. speed, time since car started, etc etc. good fun for the curious minds. Yes it does give the 17-19 kmpl on the highways. also 13-15 in the city, if driven well. unreal fuel economy. The whole car is great, just cudve have thrown in the elctronics seats, ABS , the goodies, as available in some cars of the same class. The legroom in the rear is the only real shortcoming of a car worth 12lakhs. Not bad, but u wished you had a litle more. again, fuel economy is excellent for a car of this size and built plus has a powerful Turbo 1.9 litre diesel engine. Also you are recommended to put regular diesel, not the enhanced ones. Overall worth the money 100%

Skoda Superb User Reviews

Having recently purchased the Skoda Superb 1.8 petrol (magic black), i can vouch for the "superb" feeling inside the car. Its unfortunate that i love driving else would love to be just at the back seat and stretch my legs as far in front as possible! Great ride quality and the looks which it gets when parked at my office is worth all the money that i coughed up for this beauty. The lighting (my nephew was updating my sister that "mamas" car has lights anywhere and everywhere )takes the cake and evenings are the best time to show this car to friends/ family as the lights create a really plush feel. The Sales team was excellent (Skoda Mahavir Auto Hyderabad - Ms Chandu) Today drove the E280 and yes in comparison the ride quality was not as good (Mercedes is great).. but you cant compare a E-Mercedes to a Superb (almost 22 L on road to 45L). Having said that, the interiors of the Superb are definitely better and the legroom of the Superb is far far better than even the E-series.

Skoda Yeti User Reviews

The look of the Skoda Yeti is very unique and takes some getting used to. I bought a black Skoda Yeti ambiente and got delivery on Dec 12th. It looks very smart in black colour from the front and sides. The rear is slightly boxy , but very practical and actually gives a lot of space in the boot due to its straight rear. Also, with black colour the bumpers and the B-pillar blend in well with the theme (in other colours they stand out). The styling is very different from other SUVs/Sedans and the car is like Laura, but raised much higher and with 4x4 ability. Boot space is also decent and sufficient for most families - there is around 415 L below the parcel shelf and around 680 L, with the parcel shelf removed. Also, there is an option to reduce / increase the boot space by sliding the rear seats backwards/ forwards. Comfort It is a compact SUV which will meet 99% of users requirements, even for off roading. It is especially good for the bad roads that we have in Gurgaon. The seating is very comfortable (leather seats all around) and good for long journeys. The view from the drivers seat is also good and also gives a good view of the end of the bonnet, and does not obstruct the view. The ride quality is also excellent and well tuned for bad Indian roads.
