Skoda India, the Indian subsidiary of the VW Group-owned Czech carmaker, offers some really well-built and fun-to-drive models that enjoy a high brand image owing to their German engineering. The company started its Indian operations in 2001, with the launch of the first generation Skoda Octavia. Later, it even came up with products like the Laura and the Fabia, which found some success but have been discontinued Now. Still, there are as many as 4 products available in the company’s portfolio today and most of them are pretty readily available in the used cars market.
1. Skoda Rapid
Skoda Rapid is the most affordable car in the Czech carmaker’s product portfolio for India. The Rapid is basically a derivative of the VW Vento that gets different front and rear-end styling, slightly different tuning for the engine and a stiffer suspension. While the Rapid has never been anywhere close to as popular as the Honda City or the Maruti Ciaz, it enjoys a dedicated set of followers. Hence, it can be easily found in the used car markets of most Indian cities.
The Skoda Octavia is in its third generation now and is among the highest-selling sedans in the D1-segment. It offers a rather luxurious cabin with a lot of creature-comforts, a powerful set of engines, and great ride and handling dynamics. Also, the fact that all three generations of the Octavia have been sold in the country (includes the second-get model, which was called Laura), means that it’s fairly easy to find well-maintained examples in the used car markets.
Like the Skoda Octavia, even the Skoda Superb has been on sale in India since its last three generations now. The Superb is an ultra-spacious D2-segment sedan that shares plenty of mechanicals with none other than the Audi A4 and A6. Like the Octavia, it offers a powerful set of engines, great dynamics and a high brand image.
The Skoda Kodiaq is the flagship product in its carmaker’s lineup and is one of the best SUVs you can buy in this price range. Just like the Superb, which shares many mechanical bits with Audi products, the Kodiaq has a direct relation with the luxury brand from the VW Group. However, as there has never been a huge demand for this SUV, finding one in the used car market can be quite a task.
