Looking for a fun to drive vehicle for solo drives in the city and out on the highway.
I would like to know your viewpoint on the Skoda Octavia and the VW T-Roc. Which one is more fun to drive? As the new Octavia launched with a starting price of Rs 25 lakh, has any fun factor reduced? I am using the car mainly to drive solo with minimal family usage. The drives include highway runs as well.
Both cars are good driver’s cars. We are very impressed with the way the T-Roc handles Indian roads and the 1.5 TSI engine is a real jewel. However, if money is not your main consideration, then we would suggest you look at the new Octavia, which offers a more enjoyable driving experience thanks to its stronger 2.0 TSI motor. Also, being a sedan, it handles better than the T-Roc and has more features as well. It’s not a big jump over the earlier Octavia, in terms of the fun factor, but then the last-generation Octavia was a fantastic car to start with.
