Skoda displays its new Octavia at the Expo

This is the first public viewing of the new Octavia nee Laura, Skoda?s Accord killer, which falls short of the Honda by a good six inches. For a segment obsessed with size, selling the Laura will be tough, even with Pumpe Duse tech and all the right acronyms.

This will be the first public viewing of the new Octavia nee Laura, Skoda’s Accord killer which falls short of the Honda by a good six inches.

For a segment obsessed with size, selling the Laura will be tough, even with Pumpe Duse (that is the hallowed CRDi killer tech) technology and all the right acronyms. Flanking the Lauraare the assorted Skoda range.

Skoda has shown all the major products from its stable - Skoda Fabia, Skoda Laura, Skoda Octavia Combi, Skoda Superb, Skoda RS.

Skoda Auto is a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group (VAG) and used to be the leading automobile manufacturer in the Czech Republic. However, since being taken over by German car giant Volkswagen in the early 1990s, the much maligned Czech manufacturer has rapidly risen up the auto rankings.
