Skoda Octavia is one of the sedans on the market but it has some missing features. In this article, we will discuss five such features that could be a dealbreaker for some.
No Diesel Engine
Skoda Octavia features a powerful 2.0L petrol engine. If you are a fan of diesel engines however we have some bad news. The car does not come with any diesel option and can be a major dealbreaker for diesel engine lovers.
Absence Of Ventilated Seats
Skoda Octavia missing ventilated seats as a feature is a kind of oversight by Skoda. Those seats would have been a good option, especially in the Indian weather. This is one of the points that we find a turnoff as well.
No Manual Transmission
Some people might not consider it a big point but some petrolheads might disagree. A lot of car enthusiast love the feel of a manual transmission. Putting manual transmission to good use allows you to increase your car’s fuel efficiency. Skoda Octavia missing manual transmission as a feature is something that might cause a manual transmission enthusiast to overlook the car.
Good Ground Clearance
The average ground clearance of a sedan in India is 165mm. Octavia on the other hand only has 137mm of ground clearance. Those that are frequent on the road know those illegally made speed breakers that are unnecessarily large. Getting hit by one of those with a low ground clearance will over time cause damage to your underbody.
Leg Room In The Back Seat
If you have never seen the interior of a Skoda Octavia allow us to paint a picture. The rear can seat 3 people and in the middle, there is a huge protrusion on the floor that comes upwards. This protrusion severely reduces the legroom available for the person sitting in the middle and is quite an annoying thing.
This concludes the five features that are missing from the Skoda Octavia. Note that this does not mean that the sedan is bad. It’s a good car. These are the things that the manufactures should look into if the Octavia gets a facelift.
