The 2013 Skoda Octavia has been launched in India today. Unveiled in December last year, this is the third generation Octavia which replaces the second generation model which Indians came to know as the Laura.

Skoda had earlier conducted an Indian unveiling of the new Octavia in August this year, though the prices were not announced then. However, the company at that time already started assembling the new Octavia at its Aurangabad facility.
