 In 2009 Skoda launched the face-lifted Laura. It was also the first time that Skoda offered a petrol engine with the Laura in India along with a diesel. Recently Skoda had launched the Laura vRS marking it as the sportiest variant in the Laura range.  The design of the Laura is clean and muscular with typical Skoda styling which means everyone knows from a distance away that you are driving a Skoda! We like the 16 inch alloys and the grille. The Laura vRS however completely different from the other Laura\'s and is by far the sportiest in the range. The vRS looks unlike any other Skoda especially in this \'Sprint yellow\' colour. The changes to the exterior include a new sports bumper with integrated spoiler , 16 inch alloys , polished twin exhausts , rear deck spoiler and LED lights at the front.

 
Inside the materials used are top-quality and you feel great in this cabin. The design is safe and not futuristic but its functional. The buttons are logically laid out and the steering wheel is typically Skoda. In the top versions, the L&K and Elegance, you get wood on the dash, centre console and door panels which lift the cabin ambience. The lower spec Active and Ambition variants do not get that though. As is often the case, the L&K gets leather upholstery also. The Laura vRS does not get beige or wood instead you get Alcantara/leather sports seats that look and feel great. The interior colour is black and the whole cabin has a sporty feel. The boot at 560 ltrs is massive and swallows all your luggage. Overall the interior lives up to the Skoda name for quality.
 
The Laura features two diesel engine variants and one petrol engine. The automatic Ambition, Elegance and L&K get the 140 Bhp diesel and the manual Ambition and Elegance get the 110 Bhp diesel. The 1.8 TSI 160 Bhp petrol is available in Active, Ambition or vRS spec. Both the diesels are great. Performance is smooth and turbo lag is kept at minimum. The 140 Bhp ofcourse feels quick but the 110 Bhp engine still feels reasonably quick. Another reason for the good performance is the 5-speed manual box with the 110 Bhp diesel, its precise and is well spread over the power-band. The 140 Bhp diesel has an automatic 6-speed, DSG, with Tiptronic manual gear changing.
 
When it comes to suspension, the ride is very good and the Laura just glides over the potholes and rough roads. The refinement levels are also very good - the suspension and road noise hardly intrudes into the cabin. The stability at high speeds is also great. Even the vRS which is a sporty car rides very well!
 
Skoda Laura prices start at Rs 12.9 lakhs to Rs 19 lakhs ex-showroom. Overall there is a lot to like about the Laura, the build quality, the performance. There may be newer rivals like the Elantra but the Laura still makes sense due to its quality.

Interiors

Skoda Laura 2007-2010 Picture

Unbreakable is a word that you can describe the cabin of the Laura, everything feels that it would last more than 100 years or so. The materials used are top-quality and you feel great in this cabin. The design is safe and not futuristic but its functional. The buttons are logically laid out and the steering wheel is typically Skoda. In the top versions, the L&K and Elegance, you get wood on the dash, centre console and door panels which lift the cabin ambience. The lower spec Active and Ambition varaints do not get that though. As is often the case, the L&K gets leather upholstery also. The Laura vRS does not get beige or wood instead you get Alcantara/leather sports seats that look and feel great. The interior colour is black and the whole cabin has a sporty feel that matches perfectly with the personality of the car. Space is very good at the front and at the rear its along with the class. When it comes to equipment the vRS and the L&K get a brilliant touch screen audio system and a 6.5inch LCD TFT colour display. The sound quality is awesome to say the least! One thing we missed were the steering wheel controls which are only on offer in the L&K and not even on the vRS! Other than the Active all other variants get rear air con vents. The boot at 560 ltrs is massive and swallows all your luggage. Overall the interior lives up to the Skoda name for quality.
 

What we like

You get quality and spacious interiors which feel built to last

What we don't like

You don\\\'t get many features

Skoda Laura 2007-2010 Pictures

Skoda gave the Laura a facelift in 2009 to make it fresher and compete against the likes of the Honda Civic, the VW Jetta and Corolla Altis. The biggest change is the front-end. The headlamps are more sharper and curved, plus the ridge in the bonnet give it more presence. The Laura looks like the earlier gen from the back though and you can see nothing much has changed. The Laura has a wheelbase of 2578 mm which means its a full size sedan. The design of the Laura is clean and muscular with typical Skoda styling which means everyone knows from a distance away that you are driving a Skoda! We like the 16 inch alloys and the grille. The Laura vRS however completely different from the other Laura\\\'s and is by far the sportiest in the range. The vRS looks unlike any other Skoda especially in this \\\'Sprint yellow\\\' colour. The changes to the exterior include a new sports bumper with integrated spoiler , 16 inch alloys , polished twin exhausts , rear deck spoiler and LED lights at the front. Ofcourse there are vRS badges everywhere and you get some stunning looking colours to choose from. Along with this yellow there is a \\\'race blue\\\' as well which marks out the vRS. Overall though if you want to make a statement there is no other car in this price bracket that has so much presence as the Laura vRS. The Laura is a great design and the build quality is typically Skoda ie. Great. Everything feels solid and the doors close with a \\\'thud\\\'. The paint quality is fantastic as well.
 

What we like

vRS version looks great, the design has aged well

What we don't like

But starting to look old in front of newer rivals

Exteriors Details

Engine

Everyone thinks Skoda\\\'s make only diesel! Blame their brilliant diesels for that. The Laura features two diesel engine variants and one petrol engine. The automatic Ambition, Elegance and L&K get the 140 Bhp diesel and the manual Ambition and Elegance get the 110 Bhp diesel.The 1.8 TSI 160 Bhp petrol is available in Active, Ambition or vRS spec. Both the diesels are great. Performance is smooth and turbo lag is kept at minimum. The 140 Bhp ofcourse feels quick but the 110 Bhp engine still feels reasonably quick. Another reason for the good performance is the 5-speed manual box with the 110 Bhp diesel, its precise and is well spread over the power-band. The 140 Bhp diesel has an automatic 6-speed, DSG, with Tiptronic manual gear changing. The shifts are quick and buttery smooth and make driving easy.
The 1.8 TSI is brilliant too! The 1.8 turbocharged petrol engine makes 160 Bhp and has huge amounts of power and torque. The acceleration is not ferocious or very sharp , instead it\\\'s all in one big shove at the back and the Laura vRS accelerates like a train with speed build-up being smooth and you are not even aware that you are already doing big speeds. What is also great is that you don\\\'t have to rev it to get the best out of it. There is ample torque of 250 Nm available too , which means so you are never short of power at anytime and the performance is easily accessible. However other than the engine , what I like about the vRS is the gearbox. The gearbox is a delight as well as the 6-speed manual is smooth to operate and shifts are crisp and precise.
 

What we like

Both diesel and petrol are fun to drive

What we don't like

The petrol only comes with a manual gearbox

Engine & Performance Details

Acceleration

Laura reaches 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and 0-100 in about 10.31seconds which is quite impressive for a car of this size.

Top Speed

Skoda Laura when tested clocked a top speed of 115kmpl whereas the speedo showed 120km in it.

In Gear Acceleration

Type 6 speed manual. Fully synchronized Gear ratio - 1st gear 3.78 Gear ratio - 2nd gear 2.06 Gear ratio - 3rd gear 1.45 Gear ratio - 4th gear 1.11 Gear ratio - 5th gear 0.88 Gear ratio - 6th gear 0.73

Gearbox

The gearbox is DSG 6 speed automatic and power delivery ratio is excellent. The 6-speed DSG with Tiptronic manual shifts was bang on the money, responding not just quickly but intelligently to the engine revs and the throttle position to deliver a fuel efficient car.

Power

Skoda Laura 1.8 TSI/118 kW variant has 4 cylinders and 1798cc under the hood which returns 118(160) / 4500–6200rpm, 2.0 TDI CR/81 kW variant has 4 cylinders and an engine capacity of about 1968cc and gives an output of 81(110) / 4200rpm, 2.0 TDI CR/103 kW (A) variant has 4cyinders and en engine capacity of 1968cc and returns 103(140) / 4000rpm.

NVH Levels

The smooth refined engine and well built interiors of the Laura doesn't allow any type of engine or outside sound to sip through the. There is minimum vibration if the engine is revved hard.

More

Mileage

 Th Laura has a petrol and a diesel engine on offer. The petrol makes 160 bhp from 1.8 tsi motor and delivers 13 kmpl ARAI in mileage. The diesel which is available in both manual and automatic gearboxes gives 18 in automatic version and 20 kmpl in manual version. The diese manual thus is the most efficient.

What we like

The diesel is very efficient

What we don't like

The petrol 1.8 loses efficiency when driven hard

Mileage Details

City Fuel Economy

Laura returns 11.5kmpl in the city.

Highway Fuel Economy

Skoda Laura returns 18 kmpl in the highway which is quite reasonable for a car of this size.

Arai Rated Economy

Skoda Laura ARAI rated Mileage on all the variants Fuel: Diesel (ARAI Specified) : 13.1 Kmpl Skoda Laura 2.0 TDI CR (AT) Fuel: Petrol (ARAI Specified) : 12.5 Kmpl Skoda Laura 1.8 TSI Fuel: Petrol (ARAI Specified) : 16.4 Kmpl Skoda Laura 1.9 PD

Tank Range

The tank range of the Skoda Laura will return about 660 - 720kms approx depends upon the variant.


Safety

 The handling of the Laura is very good too especially the vRS with the bigger tyres. Grip is very good though in the vRS the suspension is too soft for my liking-its a sporty car after all! However, that said, as an everyday performance car, users will really appreciate the way the suspension does its job. The steering of the Laura is very direct and there is no slackness. It is light at low speeds and delightfully weighs up at high speeds. We like it! The high speed stability of the Laura is good and you feel confident putting it through its paces.

What we like

Hnalding is very good for a car in this class and compared to rivals

What we don't like

vRS should have been a better handler

Handling Braking & Safety Details

Handling

The body control is generally very good, apart from over long-wave undulations, when the extra weight of the engine block up front can set the car’s nose nodding a bit. The electro-mechanical steering is among the best we’ve experienced and it’s only the extra mass of the 2.0 TDi unit that tends to blunt its responses over the petrol engine a bit. There is some stiffness at lower speeds though.

Braking Performance

Laura has Hydraulic dual-diagonal circuit braking system vacuum assisted with Dual Rate system. The car can stop from 100kmph to a stand still in just 3.08 seconds.

Safety Features

Parktronic sensors probe the space around the front and rear of the car to determine the presence of obstacles. TPM (Tyre Pressure Monitoring) continuously monitors the air pressure in the individual tyres and prevents critical situations by providing timely warning of pressure loss in any of the tyres. The new SKODA Laura comes with Six Airbags including dual front airbags, the front seats with WOKS (Whiplash Optimised Head Restraints). The photo sensors which detect the intensity of light inci

Abs

ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) prevents the vehicle from skidding and are present in all the variants of the Laura.

Traction Control

The traction control system is also standard equipment in all the variants of the Skoda Laura.

More

Comfort

The Laura has got MacPherson struts up front and multi-link at the rear . The ride is very good and the Laura just glides over the potholes and rough roads. The refinement levels are also very good - the suspension and road noise hardly intrudes into the cabin. The stablity at high speeds is also great. Even the vRS which is a sporty car rides very well! Going over the rough stuff and not once does the Laura touch its underbelly.

What we like

Ride is good and refinement is excellent

What we don't like

The vRS has a stiff ride

Comfort & Suspension Details

Comfort

Comfort envelopes you as soon as you step into the new SKODA Laura. Settle in for an exceptional drive with completely customizable settings. The front seats can be electrically heated to keep passengers warm even in the coldest conditions. The Cruise Control System maintains a constant speed and eliminates the need to constantly put pressure on the accelerator pedal.

Front Suspension

Laura has McPherson suspension with lower triangular links and torsion stabiliser at the front for the smoothest ride. The bright side is, the suspension setup works really well. The vRS’ ability to soak up the odd ripple.

Rear Suspension

The car has Multi-element axle, with one longitudinal and three transverse links, with torsion stabiliser at the back so the passengers at the back seat of the car gets the smoothest ride in any terrain.

New Skoda Laura

By Farhad Mehta Posted on 06 Dec 10, 04:23 PM

Pros Overall good car

Cons bad service,costly spare parts

I own a skoda Laura l&k 2010 model but i thin the old model is good because it has similar features as new laura. I think the company would have fitted with sun roof.there is not much diffrence between new and old laura. The old laura is lacking a 6.5 TFT touch screen but thats not a problem it can be fitted nearest to your showroom.

Pros great technoogy, comfort

Cons nthing

Nice car , i am presently obsessed with the Skoda Laura 1.8 TSI petrol car.. the car is brilliant so far..i had lot of apprehensions about its reported low mileage but i found that if you drive propery you can easily get 9 to 10 kmpl in city and 12 - 13 in highways.....The interiors are good, should have given seat covers in standard package..the ground clearance is good...all in all a good car.The paint finish is very good, the car is much more heavy and staurdy than civic and altis, cant say about service back up since i have purchase it only a month back

Expensive Maintenance

By Rakesh Bhalla Posted on 20 Sep 13, 05:12 PM

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,Expensive service

Hi i got my laura 2 years ago, although the feel of the car is good its heavy, drive is good , it has got the power everything is just fine but the area where the Skoda on a whole lacks against it counterpart is the expensive maintenance cost it demands, since past 2 years i have spent almost 1 lac 20 Thousand Rs on its maintenance its like nurturing a elephant, that too when i keep my car upto date the cost i am telling is just of service and parts replaced such as air conditioner compressor, Some IGR cooler and blower motor parts are really expensive, if Skoda can bring down the maintenance cost no doubt the car is Good.
