If you can provide me with a scan of this Motorsport Magazine issue (where Octavia RS was tested), I can add all the performance data (acceleration, braking etc.).

If they tested all of that, of course.

Just to clarify, the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time is a speculated time only and not an officially recorded lap time.

I actually Loved those Round headlights:( Gave it such a "Country" look, more appealing to me

Yeah, I also like Yeti. Even from's Clarkson review, I had a respect him for that. Yeti is: very practical, comfortable, reliable, fuel-efficient, affordable, usable for off-roading and good-equipped for its price. The only aspect it lacked was the performance (which actually does not make sense) and looks. Those rounded headlights looked pretty awful, but still waaaaaay nicer than Juke's :D ... But now the headlight design is improved, which makes the whole car so completed, multi-functional. The only unique Skoda.

Ive actually always like they Yeti, Comfortable, affordable, pretty good looking, its pretty much the ideal auto for a nice long cross country trip. But I don't particularly like the rear end shape, and that name is horrid.

But a great car nonetheless.

@ Nyte: In the U.S, the Jetta is sold as a compact car weighing around 3,000 LBS and available with a 2.0 liter turbocharged inline 4 as its top option engine, the Octavia reminds me very much of a Jetta.

Octavia isn't rebadged Jetta, it has different platform and engines.

@ Mental: The new Yeti reminds me of a Volkswagen Tiguan.

BTW, Skoda has just presented the facelifted Yeti. If the previous one was very cheap looking, ugly and boring, the new is way more impressive in terms of design

I also suppose it will become even a more Universal vehicle. And I consider this the only unique, a "donor" Skoda.

Think of it as a Budget Jetta...

I also like this car. There is nothing to find fault.

I don't know, I kind of like it, 217 horsepower from a 2.0 liter engine isn't bad and as light as it is, it should have impressive performance, it most likely has good fuel economy and the fact that the Skoda Octavia is basically a rebadged Volkswagen Jetta tells me that this is probably a very reliable car. :)

But this car is too similar with the Jetta (sorry, I meant Jetta, not Passat.. but does not matter at all, since all these cars are built on VW Group MQB platform). The engine, the transmission, the suspension, the interior all come straight from Volkswagen, isn't it? And even the exterior looks too common with Jetta, IMO. So I won't call this car something unique, nor a "donor" car.

But I don't see a reason for Skoda to unveil some serious sportscar. That's the deal for the master-Volkswagen, while Skoda should exactly orient on the afford-ability. Rapid Sport Concept (still a Jetta) made a hint on what performance Skoda might be, but that's too foppish, which is suitable for Skoda's stereotype. On the other hand, it does not look too much boring, and is a bit more eccentric. But for that reason Golf R already exists, which, BTW, will soon make a debut in MkVII face.

BTW, I don't really care about Octavia name, but translating "Škoda" from my mother-language, means "trouble". Nevertheless, people still buy them. :D

Not really, Skoda hasn't been worthwhile, hasn't bought anything to the table that's been exciting, Selling a lot of cars doesn't mean worth while, cars like this sell because people cant afford what they would rather have, Usually the cars that are affordable, people have, Camrys, Mustangs, Clios, Focus, Fiesta, A4, CTS, Accord, Lancers, Sentras etc etc

Its a good everypersons car, you see them all the time, Price is usually the number 1 selling point in a car. And yes, the name is terrible...Octavia, that's not a name many people would associate with a car.

sCO-Duh, is how its pronounced here

But I wish they would pick up there game and build something worthwhile.

What do you mean? that no Skoda has been "worthwhile"?

How about Skoda Octavia for years being the best selling car in several European countries???

And you shouldn't dislike the sound of a name that you haven't once heard pronounced correctly.

It's not "skoodaaa". It's not "skoda". It's "shkoda"


User avatar

BR2+  5y ago

Well, It DOES look like a VolksWagen and bits of Audi and Chevrolet put together, VolksWagen in the interior, Audi from the rear, and Chevy from the profile.

I also don't like the name, but I do like the company, and the name...Skodaaaaa. But I wish they would pick up there game and build something worthwhile.

It's not rebadged nothing. Calling a unique car that has 90% unique body and interior parts a "rebadge" is very inappropriate.

It would imply that Audi TT, VW Tiguan, Touran and Caddy are also just "rebadged golf"


User avatar

DeDe  5y ago

That's a rebadged Volkswagen Golf. ;)


User avatar

Mental  5y ago

Meeeh, I can find nothing impressive about this car. That's a rebadged VW Passat. The whole car is too shy and boring. I'd be looking for some more extravagant competitor. And the name is just hilarious.

On the other hand, it offers good fuel economy and is very affordable. And for its price, that Nord claimed time is pretty much impressive, as far it is almost as fast as the Golf GTI, which is Skoda's master. But still, I would take that Golf over Skoda any day.

I realllly wish Skoda would pick up there game and make a Real 300-400Bhp+ performance car, they have Sooooo much potential, and look fairly good, a Performance Rally car for the road would really put them out there.

They remind me a lot of VolksWagen/Audi with a bit of Chevy, So hurry the hell up Skoda!
