    I guess I’m qualified to answer this, because I’ve owned every generation of the Octavia from the 1st one. The build of the first gen was the best. The drive and handling of the 2nd was the best and the luxury of the 3rd so far has been great. So it’s not so easy to choose, but if I had to judge purely based on driving pleasure, it’ll have to be the Laura for me.

    I love all of them. The one which I love the most is the 2017 model with the split headlights. One hell of a looker!

    I have the 2017 split headlight one and I just love it. I know many don't like it but I fell in love the first time I saw it. Still going strong.

    I think the Octavia 2012 was a game changer considering how it came back with a bang and kept the throne for itself.

    SOMEONE HAS TO SAY IT..SO HERE IT IS It is absolutely not worth it. Even Skoda coming back with India plan 2.0, it overlooked the fact that Indians are more keen about the features on offer as we are more feature oriented customers. Not offering driving modes, NO SUNROOF, impractical ac switches (have to go two-three steps via infotainment touch screen to increase/decrease the fan speed), NO VENTILATED SEATS at Rs. 32 Lakhs car even when their own Skoda Kushaq will be providing which is around Rs. 20 Lakhs (the most important feature in a car currently needed in a car). Hope someday Skoda will understand the Indian market better in India Plan 3.0 P.S- I wonder how we will use voice assistance when with parents?!

    Now they have ruined the DSG with that repulsive "shift by wire" in the new Octavia. No manual mode and the gear selector is just simply stupid. I was so looking forward to the Octavia 4 but that gearbox is a deal breaker. My family had an Opel Astra 1.6 when I was a kid then they got a Renault Logan for some reason. Octavia could have been the perfect next car if it wasn't for the new DSG. Just offer a manual if offering a desirable DSG is hard now..
