Laura Vs Jetta. Which is better?


Comparing two cars Jetta from VW and Laura from Skoda which belongs to the same family (Volkswagen) is always tricky. More so when both of them are premium cars. Difference between them normally border on greys. The decisions therefore normally are quite subjective. This would be the case with Laura-Elegance-20-TDI-MT-vs-Jetta-Comfortline-2.0-TDI-MT- Which is better?


Laura Elegance 2.0 TDI M/T vs Jetta Comfortline 2.0 TDI M/T. Please suggest which one is better overall.

Laura Vs Jetta. Which is better?

What a Question - Two cars from the same family (as even Skoda belongs to the VW group internationally). Between the two the difference would be more in terms of features being offered for the price being charged by the two cars.

Engine under the hood is same for both of them but Jetta engine is tuned to deliver higher power and torque figures, this would also mean lower fuel efficiencies.

Other differences:
Upholstery - Leather vs Leatherette in Jetta
Front Seats - Height adjustments for both driver and passenger front seat vs only Driver in Jetta
Parking - Visual and Acoustic aid vs just acoustic in Jetta
Light and rain sensing equipments in teh Jetta vs just rain sensing wiper of Laura
Airbags - Curtain airbags front and rear in Jetta vs front Dual in Laura
Dimensionally Jetta has longer length, wheelbase and width vs Laura
Enterainment wise one ahs heard Jetta system to be far more superior that the Laura

Whilst the Jetta is around 40-50 k costlier than the Laura - Its interior tactile feel is more premium than the Laura, plus as a Brand its considered to be more premium than the Laura.

A premium car buyer is normally more interested in inside tactile feel and brand value than tangible features. We would therefore recommend Jetta as it delivers all that a premium car buyers seek from a car.

VISITOR                                                              hello           


AGENT                                                                Good Afternoon     


VISITOR                                                              I need to know few details about used cars              


AGENT                                                                We are not into used cars, however, if your questions are more generic in nature, maybe we could help, please ask                                


VISITOR                                                              ok thanks  


VISITOR                                                              i am interested to buy only Skoda Laura     


VISITOR                                                              just confusion is to whether go for old diesel engine or new one   


AGENT                                                                Personally speaking I will not go for the Laura, too expensive to maintain, and used car will only damage the pocket more                


VISITOR                                                              okk               


VISITOR                                                              is 10 year old vehicle worth to buy ?             


VISITOR                                                              if it’s in good condition       


VISITOR                                                              regular service        


AGENT                                                                Definitely not never, how many KMs it’s done        


VISITOR                                                              125000         


VISITOR                                                              another option is used Honda Accord          


AGENT                                                                Avoid completely, it's soon going ask for engine repairs and Laura being a discontinued model, engine work if required will be back breaking        


AGENT                                                                You seem to be in love with big cars, yes Honda Accord is worth a look at again less than 1 lacs Kms would be an ideal proposition      


VISITOR                                                              yes its true , i am looking only for big cars ,               


AGENT                                                                what kind of price range are you getting them at   


VISITOR                                                              2006 model , 5 lakhs , 85km               


VISITOR                                                              2 owner     


VISITOR                                                              i will be the third   


AGENT                                                                oops - get the car checked thoroughly, take it to a Honda dealer and ask then to get a diagnostic done on the car, they might charge you, but its worth every penny. Diagnostic should be for engine and body definitely                                                                             


AGENT                                                                check insurance claims if any on the past   


VISITOR                                                              okk sure     


VISITOR                                                              if car engine and body are good      


VISITOR                                                              as its 10yrs old        


VISITOR                                                              it will be fine           


VISITOR                                                              ?    


AGENT                                                                as informed earlier, we are not into used cars so pricing will be difficult to comment on, i will buy it with a clear idea of enjoying it for some years and then selling at near scrap value  


VISITOR                                                              ok 


VISITOR                                                              when compared to Skoda Laura , Honda Accord will be little bit cheaper in maintenance ?


AGENT                                                                No they are both going to be expensive to maintain and I am sure both are gas guzzlers    


VISITOR                                                              ok 


VISITOR                                                              final question  , how about hyundai verna or Honda city or Skoda rapid ?   


AGENT                                                                City, followed by Verna and then Rapid      


VISITOR                                                              comfortable drive in bad road ,control and stability at 100km plus  which will be top           


VISITOR                                                              that all my doubts 


AGENT                                                                City Because I drive one, between Verna and Rapid don't know much but my vote will be for Rapid for its stability and handling, which should be better than the lighter Verna               


VISITOR                                                              okk                


VISITOR                                                              thank you very much           


VISITOR                                                              for your patience   


VISITOR                                                              and your kind advice            


AGENT                                                                pleasure
