    Skoda should have added those below features along with touchscreen infotainment system.
    1) Driver side power windows master control switch.
    2) Led Drls
    3) Fog lights
    4) Alloys
    If the above features was listed with a decent price trust me it will attract the buyers rigorously.

    This is no big deal, earlier the engine was 1.2 Lt TSI, with 17.50Km now they have reduced it to 1.0 Lt TSI, obviously, Torgue ratio will differ, so u will get the better mileage, BUT this is Best in class, because I own VENTO TSI 1.2 LT AUTOMATIC from past 5 Years and covered 60K km, fully satisfied..Value for every rupee and peace of mind...next i am planning to Buy SKODA octovia or SKODA superb......let us see......
