Skoda Octavia-The Octavia brand name helped Skoda establish itself in India and is responsible for the positives buyers attach with the brand. After a very successful run, the Octavia name was replaced with the Laura, which was essentially a rebadged next-gen Octavia. However, the company decided to resurrect the brand name with the launch of the latest generation Octavia in India. What you get now is a car that is the best in almost every aspect. The new design language gives it a very distinct appeal, space is class leading and so is the comfort level. Also, it gets a long list of features and the most powerful engines in its segment. The interiors are exceptionally well made and ooze class and quality. Powerful engines mean the Octavia is fun to drive, but since the petrol version gets a different and better suspension setup compared to the diesel, it rides even better and is more comfortable. The Skoda Octavia is easily one of the best cars in India below 20 lakhs. Perhaps the only flaw is Skoda’s shoddy aftersales support.

Toyota Corolla Altis-The Corolla has always sold in decent numbers in the Indian market. Most of this is thanks to its solid built, comfortable ride and good value for money. The Altis looks great and retains the positives of the previous generation models. It offers good interior space and the rear seats can even recline.
The only real problem with the Corolla is the Diesel motor which just doesn’t seem right in a car costing around 20 lakhs. At just 87 bhp, it is less powerful than cars from a segment below, which is hard to digest. But the car is aimed at buyers who would mostly hand it over to their chauffeurs, in which case the lack of power might not be a major issue. The Toyota Corolla Altis is set to receive comprehensive makeover next year.
