    The A3 is based on the same platform as the Octavia but is smaller than the Octavia!!!

    But it is almost double the price of the superb Octavia!!!

    I deifnitely see Octavia as a superior package to Audi A3 for people who do not care about showing-off… but show their intelligence by selecting the smart choice.

    It is sad that skoda marketing in india is not giving the good positioning for the brand and the products.
