Sometimes speed is all you need

The Skoda Octavia vRS is the most fun you can possibly have with a car under Rs 50 lakh, let alone Rs 30 lakh

You might think that the life of an auto writer is pretty awesome right? Driving fancy cars and travelling to exotic places. Well, it is pretty awesome but here are some facts. First, you spend far too much time inside a plane and running around airports trying to make connections. Racial profiling at airports abroad? Well, I have a beard so that shit happens. Second, fancy hotels in fancy places sure. But for one night usually coupled with a wake-up call at five in the morning, and if it is a Maruti drive, four in the morning. And third, you usually end up driving an endless stream of mediocrity. I mean, they’re not bad cars you drive. Well, sometimes, yes, they’re horrible, but mostly they’re ordinary. I mean, what can you do to make a small diesel hatchback fun? Nothing.

But this past weekend I drove something truly good fun, the new Skoda Octavia vRS. Oh, my God, this car was fun. I mean I’ve driven other Volkswagen group cars with the same engine........
