At an ex-showroom price of Rs 18.25 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) the Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI was only available in top-spec Elegance variant but now this stunning engine can be enjoyed at a cheaper price as Skoda has launched the Octavia Ambition variant at Rs 16.85 lakh (ex- showroom).
Priced at Rs 16.85 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) the Octavia Ambition variant lets go of some goodies present in the Elegance variant. In the Ambition variant you do not get features like Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, front parking sensors, side airbags and curtain airbags, Panoramic electric sunroof and 12-way electrically adjustable driver seat which are present in the Elegance.
However you do get nearly all 'essential' features like alloys, halogen lights, touch screen audio system, climate control, Bluetooth, audio controls on steering wheel, ABS EBD and dual front airbags. The main thing though is that you will enjoy the 1.8 litre turbocharged petrol engine making 177 bhp but with the same 7-speed DSG autobox as there is no manual option with this engine still this is something not many will mind.
