The car is equipped with comfort features like rear reading lamps, heated seats for the front and reclining seats for the rear passengers. Corolla has 60:40 rear split capability, the feature lacking in Octavia and Fluence. On safety front it sports dual SRS airbags, 3-point ELR and 2-point NR seatbelt and ABS with EBD, etc.
The new Renault Fluence seems to be banking high on the French flair. It shows off new family grille section with projector headlamps and day-time-running-LED fixed in the fog lamp enclosure. The rear section remains intact as that of the previous version.
Corolla looks more premium from outside while Skoda Octavia has an overall simple profile without any ostentation. It sports rectangular headlamps with LED day-time- -running-lights and the new family grille framework at the front. The new company badge can be seen at the center which will inspire the future models.
The side profile looks contemporary with 16-inch alloy set while the rear features angular styled tail lights and sleek spoiler for the sports quotient.
The all new Toyota Corolla Altis was first unveiled at the Auto Expo 2014. The new car is a splendid version of the outgoing model. Based on Furia concept, Corolla sports a trapezoidal grille accompanied with swept back Bi-Xenon head lamps and huge airdam at the front.
Skoda cars are always ahead in safety front. Octavia comes with nine-airbags, ABS with EBD, intelligent assistance system, Lane assistance, etc.
Skoda Octavia is lengthier in dimensions from the other two so there is plenty of roominess inside.
Skoda Octavia features dual toned black and beige interiors dressed in premium fabric and plastic. Like Corolla, the car is nothing short of comfort features. The driver seat is 12 way adjustable, AC with dual zone climatronic and AC vents for rear passengers, rich 6-inch touchscreen infotainment that also have USB and Aux-In ports and panoramic sunroof as well.
