Skoda Laura Classic launched at Rs 11.99 lakh


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

The Indian auto market is magical land where strange things happen. As petrol gets expensive, petrol cars are becoming cheaper. As cheaper cars become more expensive, expensive cars become cheaper.

Such is the unpredictable nature of this market.

Here is a new story in the saga. Following the trend of ‘Corporate Edition’ models Skoda India has launched stripped out version of the D segment contender – Laura called the Laura Classic which could be yours for an astonishing price of Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi)

For the money, you don’t a lot of luxury features neither do you get Alloy wheels. You do get a single-DIN CD player with instead a Central infotainment system.

What the Skoda Laura Classic DOESN’T have

* Alloy Wheels
* Height adjustment for driver and front passenger seats
* Lumbar support adjustment for driver and front passenger seats
* Front centre armrest
* Central infotainment system
* Škoda Swing audio player
* Audio Auxiliary
* Adjustable rear air conditioning vents on rear centre console
* Leather wrapped steering wheel, gearshift knob and brake lever
* Storage compartment under the front passenger seat
* Cooled Jumbo box under front armrest
* Eyewear compartment
* Front fog lights
* Parktronic sensors and speaker at rear
* Parktronic display on central infotainment system

With the loss in weight, the car could be more fuel efficient and quicker off the line. By paying less, you not only get a turbocharged Skoda but also a more fuel efficient and faster car!
