I go for the Skoda Octavia for its elegant design... Well the L & K really is feautre packed required for Indian Roads...Imagine you are looking at the Wonderful Speedo on the Civic the next second a civilian would cross the road in front of ur car and u wud have to lower the glass to yell at him and from then on ur eyes are on the road and not on the speedo anymore.. I personally admire the Civic coz its a real sporty model... I love to drive it if I get a chance.... Skoda is good.. I guess with its RS model having a top speed of 219 Kmph on Indian Roads I guess Skoda is all set for Indian Roads.. But I do remember that Skoda was a failure in the European car market...!!!
