Cars worth waiting for in 2013
New Skoda Octavia
The Octavia name disappeared from the Indian market when Skoda pulled the plug on it thanks to tightening emission norms in 2010. But the Czech-giant is all set to bring back the name in late 2013. The car will be bigger than old Octavia. There is a choice of diesels, the base being a 103bhp 1.6, and there will also be a frugal 108bhp Greenline version of the 1.6. Two 2.0-litre TDIs will also be on offer, with 147bhp and 181bhp. However, which of the motor options will be brought to India still remains sketchy. The 1.4-litre petrol with 120bhp which does duty on the Jetta will also make it on the new Octy. The car arrives here towards the latter end of 2013 and will be priced around Rs 14 lakh.
Estimated price - Rs 14-15 lakh
Expected launch – November 2013
