Good Ambitions

Its C-shaped tail lamps also gel well with them extending the car’s shoulder line to the sculpting of the boot lid

So as many of you know, Skoda is back and their showroom sits proudly along Leng Kee Road. Upon entering their showroom, there is a certain air of premium-ness with their cars. That is the way the brand intended.

The Octavia is not pretentious at all, in-fact the compact family sedan (that is if I use the term sedan lightly, since the car really is a more of a lift-back) is a practical car, with just the right amount of chrome embellishments which surrounds the front grille, while the edgy design language, together with subtle creases in its side sheet metal, provides for some girth.

The newly-styled headlamps not only complements the car’s edgy design, the daytime running lights on our Ambition Plus trim test car are cleverly sited at the base of the lenses, and they visually carry the grill’s chrome border to the far edges of the Octavia.

In addition to the Ambition Plus trim, a lovely set of ten-spoke 17” rims, and 225/45 series sits in the wheel arches, leaving just about the right amount of visual gap… well yes, I am fussy about looks.

Its C-shaped tail lamps also gel well with them extending the car’s shoulder line to the sculpting of the boot lid.
