From its home turf Czech Republic, Skoda will unveil the eagerly-awaited next-generation model of the Skoda Octavia (Laura in India). The car is sure to be Skoda’s showstopper at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show where it will be officially launched.

 

Here in India, the Octavia will be launched as the all-new Laura and will compete with the current crop of D-segment luxury sedans including the Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Cruze, Renault Fluence and the recently launched Hyundai Elantra. It will go up against some stiff competition given the fact that the new Elantra is selling in big numbers.

 

The 2013 Octavia will go on sale in Europe soon after its official launch at the Geneva Motor Show. Here in India though, the car will be made available only during the last quarter of 2013.
