Why should I buy Accord when Laura 1.8 TSI is ther

Recommended Posts

I know that the Accord has many more features/frills/brand name than the Laura 1.8 TSI but when it comes to the engine, the TSI is as good if not better. The TSI is faster and more frugal. Plus it is cheaper by about Rs 6 lakh.

Then, why should I buy the Accord?

Hai ivar1951, you said it correctly. Why should one buy an Accord or a Civic if Laura 1.8 TSI is there ?

The only thing which draws me back is the after sales services and the spare parts cost.About the after sales services, Skoda India is trying to make a miracle with its after sales service, which they have not disclosed till now. Its not said by me, but by Mr. Thomas Kuehl, Board Member, Sales and Marketing, Skoda Auto India.And with the spare parts issue, VW and Skoda, both combined are going to start the production of spare parts (should be in the Chakan Plant)for all their products in India which will considerably decrease the cost of ownership.

So why should one worry about buying a Skoda car ?

PLUS points for ACCORD: space comfort, luxury

PLUS points for LAURA: Everything else.

You summed it right. LAURA all the way.

I dont know what people keep criticizing Skoda dealers for? My local dealer does a wonderful job.

as per the comparo between the two,on papers and performance skoda have

a slight edge over the japenese rival but on engine refinement accord

still leads.

also ASS of honda is way much better than skoda which probably is going

to get a boost as per the comments given by fellow member SP1916.

as per the price, honda has adapted a BAD HABBIT of charging a premium

on there products and skoda has learned the same hard way just beause

there brand value is a step lower than the Japs brand, so probably that

makes Laura 1.8 TSIĀ  a better VFM.
