7-speed dsg transmission and by the way

0:02:24.480,0:02:26.800
before we start the interview i just

0:02:26.000,0:02:29.280
want to say that

0:02:26.800,0:02:31.200
skoda has one of the shortest brochures

0:02:29.280,0:02:31.920
i’ve ever seen of any car company it’s

0:02:31.200,0:02:34.239
only

0:02:31.920,0:02:35.200
four pages long and the last page just

0:02:34.239,0:02:37.120
says book

0:02:35.200,0:02:38.319
a test drive and feel the difference so

0:02:37.120,0:02:39.760
they are very smart

0:02:38.319,0:02:41.360
make you come down to the showroom to

0:02:39.760,0:02:42.800
test drive and feel the car

0:02:41.360,0:02:44.879
all right so let’s get on straight to

0:02:42.800,0:02:48.080
the review all right so

0:02:44.879,0:02:51.519
sharath tell us why did you buy this

0:02:48.080,0:02:52.959
car and why scooter okay so um

0:02:51.519,0:02:55.040
actually you know as a first time car

0:02:52.959,0:02:57.680
owner you know before you buy

0:02:55.040,0:02:59.120
any big purchase i did a lot of research

0:02:57.680,0:03:00.800
uh i went to internet

0:02:59.120,0:03:03.360
uh i was looking at all the reviews and

0:03:00.800,0:03:05.760
like a typical you know

0:03:03.360,0:03:07.120
who always look for top 10 cars to buy

0:03:05.760,0:03:08.000
in singapore you know that kind of thing

0:03:07.120,0:03:11.760
and i think uh

0:03:08.000,0:03:13.360
skoda’s rs245 came up in a lot of

0:03:11.760,0:03:14.800
reviews uh especially in the streets

0:03:13.360,0:03:15.760
times list i think it was in the top 10

0:03:14.800,0:03:18.080
cars as well

0:03:15.760,0:03:19.280
so that actually got me to the skoda’s

0:03:18.080,0:03:21.360
showroom

0:03:19.280,0:03:23.280
but when i went to the skoda showroom

0:03:21.360,0:03:26.319
this car was parked right at the

0:03:23.280,0:03:27.280
entrance and uh it had uh it looked

0:03:26.319,0:03:29.599
really good

0:03:27.280,0:03:30.560
at the entrance right so i was having my

0:03:29.599,0:03:32.480
i was having trouble

0:03:30.560,0:03:34.400
keeping my eyes off this car was i was

0:03:32.480,0:03:36.239
looking at the rs245

0:03:34.400,0:03:38.000
which i which i was quite interested in

0:03:36.239,0:03:40.239
um but i guess when i actually did the

0:03:38.000,0:03:42.400
test drive for the rs245 first

0:03:40.239,0:03:43.519
uh yeah it was really powerful really

0:03:42.400,0:03:45.920
great car to drive

0:03:43.519,0:03:47.440
but i had my uh my dad and my wife with

0:03:45.920,0:03:48.239
me and they didn’t really look very

0:03:47.440,0:03:50.720
comfortable

0:03:48.239,0:03:51.519
uh when i was driving and uh at the same

0:03:50.720,0:03:53.360
time

0:03:51.519,0:03:55.120
yeah the rest of i didn’t really i

0:03:53.360,0:03:57.360
couldn’t really gel with it

0:03:55.120,0:03:59.439
uh so you know i immediately did a test

0:03:57.360,0:04:01.680
drive for this skoda superb

0:03:59.439,0:04:03.439
uh and i felt like the engine or the

0:04:01.680,0:04:04.319
performance wasn’t really that far off

0:04:03.439,0:04:06.480
you know for

0:04:04.319,0:04:07.439
a really heavy car it really pulled

0:04:06.480,0:04:08.799
quite quickly and the

0:04:07.439,0:04:10.400
sales guy was very clever like he

0:04:08.799,0:04:12.799
immediately put me in sports mode and

0:04:10.400,0:04:15.360
asked me to just ram

0:04:12.799,0:04:16.000
yeah it felt quick and it felt like a

0:04:15.360,0:04:17.759
thing so

0:04:16.000,0:04:20.000
i was like okay i was i was quite quite

0:04:17.759,0:04:21.919
sold out yeah

0:04:20.000,0:04:22.880
so that’s what got me to buy this uh lmk

0:04:21.919,0:04:24.320
and i actually booked the car on the

0:04:22.880,0:04:26.479
same day as a test drive so yeah

0:04:24.320,0:04:28.560
oh nice it disappeared to you more than

0:04:26.479,0:04:30.160
the rs245 when i went down

0:04:28.560,0:04:32.560
physically yeah this support appealed to

0:04:30.160,0:04:35.120
me before you went down

0:04:32.560,0:04:36.880
i was already involved yeah i was pretty

0:04:35.120,0:04:38.960
sure i was going to get rs245 but i

0:04:36.880,0:04:40.800
i don’t know when i when i started and

0:04:38.960,0:04:42.240
in fact i think my family when they were

0:04:40.800,0:04:44.160
sitting around trying around

0:04:42.240,0:04:45.360
they didn’t even move away from this car

0:04:44.160,0:04:46.639
i was trying to get their attention on

0:04:45.360,0:04:47.199
to the car that i want to buy but they

0:04:46.639,0:04:50.800
didn’t really

0:04:47.199,0:04:53.120
care so yeah if the family says okay go

0:04:50.800,0:04:55.199
go for this i also decided okay

0:04:53.120,0:04:56.639
okay and then like if you don’t mind

0:04:55.199,0:04:58.080
sharing like uh

0:04:56.639,0:04:59.919
you’ve won this card for five weeks

0:04:58.080,0:05:00.320
already right four five weeks five weeks

0:04:59.919,0:05:02.000
and

0:05:00.320,0:05:04.720
uh how much did you pay for it were

0:05:02.000,0:05:05.919
there any like uh you know promotions or

0:05:04.720,0:05:09.120
whatsoever for this

0:05:05.919,0:05:10.320
okay so i i got it um basically during

0:05:09.120,0:05:12.400
the phase two period

0:05:10.320,0:05:13.919
of uh the circuit breaker and i think at

0:05:12.400,0:05:16.000
that point of time

0:05:13.919,0:05:18.639
uh i i felt like many showrooms were

0:05:16.000,0:05:21.199
pretty keen to negotiate

0:05:18.639,0:05:22.400
negotiations yeah exactly after two

0:05:21.199,0:05:25.360
months of closure and i

0:05:22.400,0:05:26.800
i did uh get a very good uh price for

0:05:25.360,0:05:29.440
this car i was in the range of uh

0:05:26.800,0:05:30.639
i would say 130 to 140 right uh for this

0:05:29.440,0:05:31.840
car and uh

0:05:30.639,0:05:34.400
at the same time i didn’t feel the sales

0:05:31.840,0:05:35.840
guy was too pushy uh he he explained to

0:05:34.400,0:05:38.080
me the features pretty well and and

0:05:35.840,0:05:39.680
to me i just felt like for car with

0:05:38.080,0:05:40.960
these many bells and whistles uh with

0:05:39.680,0:05:42.479
this kind of performance the kind of

0:05:40.960,0:05:44.880
price range was very much

0:05:42.479,0:05:46.560
a value for money kind of yeah and i

0:05:44.880,0:05:47.759
think skoda’s are very very famous for

0:05:46.560,0:05:50.800
giving that value

0:05:47.759,0:05:52.240
um overseas yeah

0:05:50.800,0:05:54.080
so i like i was telling you before i

0:05:52.240,0:05:55.280
spent about two years in india before my

0:05:54.080,0:05:56.240
national service and i think that’s

0:05:55.280,0:05:58.479
where scooters

0:05:56.240,0:05:59.919
are very popular and i kind of knew that

0:05:58.479,0:06:01.759
they are still uh quite a

0:05:59.919,0:06:03.360
good brand you mentioned that over there

0:06:01.759,0:06:06.240
they are chauffeur driven

0:06:03.360,0:06:06.240
oh yes obviously

0:06:08.880,0:06:12.160
so yeah i think i always knew that this

0:06:10.479,0:06:15.199
car or skoda’s to be

0:06:12.160,0:06:16.000
very uh i would say back seat passenger

0:06:15.199,0:06:18.160
comfort

0:06:16.000,0:06:20.639
hey villa so yeah you want to give a

0:06:18.160,0:06:22.639
shout out to your salesman

0:06:20.639,0:06:25.919
yeah sure you can look for ryan at skoda

0:06:22.639,0:06:25.919
center a pretty good guy

0:06:26.479,0:06:31.680
also you mentioned i think you are the

0:06:29.520,0:06:34.400
first person in singapore to get this

0:06:31.680,0:06:35.840
skoda superb in the lnk variant yes so

0:06:34.400,0:06:37.759
when i was looking at the car cost

0:06:35.840,0:06:40.080
update a sheet of cars registered in

0:06:37.759,0:06:41.360
july yeah this was the only lnk

0:06:40.080,0:06:43.520
registered besides one of the

0:06:41.360,0:06:44.319
superblocks i i’m lucky enough to be in

0:06:43.520,0:06:46.639
the first

0:06:44.319,0:06:49.120
probably the first registered uh you

0:06:46.639,0:06:51.919
know skoda super lnk in singapore

0:06:49.120,0:06:52.960
and okay so what do you uh like about

0:06:51.919,0:06:55.759
this car

0:06:52.960,0:06:57.120
okay i i honestly it it it’s it feels

0:06:55.759,0:06:59.280
very sturdy when you drive

0:06:57.120,0:07:01.120
i think uh you can also view it and uh

0:06:59.280,0:07:03.039
at the at the same time the the

0:07:01.120,0:07:05.599
comfort mode which i’m not sure if you

0:07:03.039,0:07:08.000
have engaged it is really comfortable

0:07:05.599,0:07:09.039
uh that’s one thing and uh the the other

0:07:08.000,0:07:10.800
thing about uh

0:07:09.039,0:07:12.400
this car that i really like again i i

0:07:10.800,0:07:15.440
went for the virtual cockpit

0:07:12.400,0:07:16.000
it it it’s the resolution is not as uh

0:07:15.440,0:07:17.520
dim

0:07:16.000,0:07:19.759
and and it’s it’s actually quite quite

0:07:17.520,0:07:22.080
nice uh to drive um

0:07:19.759,0:07:24.240
and uh especially when you even when you

0:07:22.080,0:07:26.720
go into sports mode it just leaps off

0:07:24.240,0:07:27.360
so it has that comfortable kind of a

0:07:26.720,0:07:28.639
setting

0:07:27.360,0:07:30.080
at the same time when you go into sports

0:07:28.639,0:07:30.560
you can still get the performance out of

0:07:30.080,0:07:32.400
it

0:07:30.560,0:07:33.919
so to different personalities yeah yeah

0:07:32.400,0:07:34.560
exactly so when you’re driving people

0:07:33.919,0:07:35.919
around

0:07:34.560,0:07:37.440
obviously you’re always in comfort mode

0:07:35.919,0:07:38.560
because you know uh you want them to be

0:07:37.440,0:07:39.919
comfortable all the time

0:07:38.560,0:07:43.120
but when you’re by yourself you just

0:07:39.919,0:07:43.120
unleash the whole uh

0:07:55.039,0:07:59.440
i’ve driven nissan before which had that

0:07:57.520,0:08:01.120
and i think my friends bm as well

0:07:59.440,0:08:02.560
the the auto start sword doesn’t really

0:08:01.120,0:08:04.720
feel it’s not that i

0:08:02.560,0:08:06.240
noticed yeah not as intrusive as in

0:08:04.720,0:08:06.560
other cars you don’t really feel it you

0:08:06.240,0:08:08.479
know

0:08:06.560,0:08:09.919
i only when we stopped for the second or

0:08:08.479,0:08:12.800
third time then i realized that it was

0:08:09.919,0:08:12.800
honestly yeah

0:08:14.240,0:08:18.400
so next what do you dislike about this

0:08:16.160,0:08:21.039
car i would say definitely

0:08:18.400,0:08:22.240
would be the the positioning of the

0:08:21.039,0:08:25.199
navigation i hit you at

0:08:22.240,0:08:27.120
it’s a bit low so you know your eyes

0:08:25.199,0:08:27.520
yeah your eyesight have to go down and i

0:08:27.120,0:08:29.039
think

0:08:27.520,0:08:30.560
they didn’t really think through the

0:08:29.039,0:08:32.560
whole thing because you know even your

0:08:30.560,0:08:33.919
buttons are on the left side so

0:08:32.560,0:08:35.120
you know you have to i i’m not someone

0:08:33.919,0:08:36.719
with very long hands so you don’t have

0:08:35.120,0:08:38.080
to stretch over and you know press this

0:08:36.719,0:08:40.399
so because it was left and right

0:08:38.080,0:08:41.919
i think so yeah quite likely yeah but i

0:08:40.399,0:08:43.279
think a lot of cars nowadays have like

0:08:41.919,0:08:45.040
both sides like so i think they only

0:08:43.279,0:08:48.959
went for left so it was uh

0:08:45.040,0:08:51.519
um and and uh i think that’s that’s

0:08:48.959,0:08:52.320
pretty much um the biggest thing that i

0:08:51.519,0:08:54.000
dislike

0:08:52.320,0:08:55.680
okay other than that it’s it’s quick and

0:08:54.000,0:08:57.360
yeah i mean again i i

0:08:55.680,0:08:59.040
as a first-time car know so i think i i

0:08:57.360,0:09:01.279
just went for the color black

0:08:59.040,0:09:03.519
because it looks really nice but yeah i

0:09:01.279,0:09:05.600
realized

0:09:03.519,0:09:07.440
it looks good in black but i guess it’s

0:09:05.600,0:09:09.519
it’s not that easy to maintain

0:09:07.440,0:09:11.760
um you know swirl marks can be quite

0:09:09.519,0:09:13.680
quite uh obvious in this car and i think

0:09:11.760,0:09:14.959
even the piano black finisher it’s a bit

0:09:13.680,0:09:17.360
of a fingerprint magnet

0:09:14.959,0:09:19.040
i think you can already see so i i do

0:09:17.360,0:09:21.839
tend to spend quite a bit of time

0:09:19.040,0:09:23.200
every week just you know wiping stuff so

0:09:21.839,0:09:24.160
that’s a small little dislike i would

0:09:23.200,0:09:26.720
say

0:09:24.160,0:09:27.279
so just those two ah those two are the

0:09:26.720,0:09:30.240
bigger ones

0:09:27.279,0:09:31.839
yeah okay that’s really nothing not much

0:09:30.240,0:09:33.040
to be very honest but again i’ve only

0:09:31.839,0:09:36.080
driven the car for five weeks so

0:09:33.040,0:09:37.760
yeah and you know you have that cease

0:09:36.080,0:09:40.880
error that just popped up easily

0:09:37.760,0:09:43.600
so not a big deal but yeah it’s just

0:09:40.880,0:09:44.399
so um there’s a side to see side assist

0:09:43.600,0:09:47.360
uh error

0:09:44.399,0:09:50.560
right so probably a sensor that’s faulty

0:09:47.360,0:09:53.519
or something not a big issue and also

0:09:50.560,0:09:54.560
um i don’t think i’ll be driving fast

0:09:53.519,0:09:55.680
whatsoever because

0:09:54.560,0:09:57.760
i don’t know whether you can tell it’s

0:09:55.680,0:09:59.839
raining outside um

0:09:57.760,0:10:00.959
so yeah just gonna be just a regular

0:09:59.839,0:10:02.720
drive uh

0:10:00.959,0:10:04.399
you know around this area of singapore

0:10:02.720,0:10:06.959
which is a pity trust me

0:10:04.399,0:10:08.399
yeah this car really goes quite fast

0:10:06.959,0:10:10.160
let’s say you know somebody is

0:10:08.399,0:10:11.440
looking to get this car do you have any

0:10:10.160,0:10:13.920
advice for them

0:10:11.440,0:10:14.560
okay in terms of uh tips for new owners

0:10:13.920,0:10:17.839
again i

0:10:14.560,0:10:20.320
i i would say bring a family with you

0:10:17.839,0:10:21.440
when you when you um you know get get a

0:10:20.320,0:10:23.600
car like this or i

0:10:21.440,0:10:25.279
are looking for a you know a luxury

0:10:23.600,0:10:26.399
sedan kind of a variant because i i

0:10:25.279,0:10:28.399
honestly feel that

0:10:26.399,0:10:29.760
when you try different cars your the

0:10:28.399,0:10:30.320
backseat passengers will be able to tell

0:10:29.760,0:10:33.200
you

0:10:30.320,0:10:34.480
a lot more about whether this car is

0:10:33.200,0:10:36.480
really for them or not like

0:10:34.480,0:10:38.480
for you when you’re enjoying the rs245

0:10:36.480,0:10:40.720
yeah family suffering

0:10:38.480,0:10:42.320
so if my family wasn’t there uh i would

0:10:40.720,0:10:44.640
have probably just gone ahead with rs245

0:10:42.320,0:10:44.640
but then

0:10:47.680,0:10:50.560
yeah so i think definitely for a car

0:10:49.279,0:10:51.200
like this it’s good to have a family

0:10:50.560,0:10:53.519
around

0:10:51.200,0:10:55.279
yeah okay again very useful tips right

0:10:53.519,0:10:58.880
there yeah

0:10:55.279,0:11:00.560
i’m a family guy so yeah just my overall

0:10:58.880,0:11:02.480
thoughts the interior reminds me a bit

0:11:00.560,0:11:04.720
of search but it’s a bit more premium

0:11:02.480,0:11:06.079
but maybe because this is the high-end

0:11:04.720,0:11:07.839
uh you know

0:11:06.079,0:11:09.760
superb so can’t really compare but just

0:11:07.839,0:11:12.320
uh you know like this part here

0:11:09.760,0:11:13.600
the sides here and the top here but the

0:11:12.320,0:11:15.360
ones below but uh

0:11:13.600,0:11:17.279
this reminds me of them below it it’s

0:11:15.360,0:11:20.320
all very volkswagen like

0:11:17.279,0:11:22.160
yeah yeah very you cover the batch right

0:11:20.320,0:11:23.279
yeah uh and you know you ask people to

0:11:22.160,0:11:28.320
guess they’ll probably tell you it’s a

0:11:23.279,0:11:30.320
volkswagen it’s like a passato

0:11:28.320,0:11:31.440
um i don’t feel the size of the car when

0:11:30.320,0:11:33.839
i’m driving also

0:11:31.440,0:11:35.279
yeah i don’t feel the size uh it’s also

0:11:33.839,0:11:37.920
quite quiet like what you mentioned

0:11:35.279,0:11:38.480
yeah really quiet and if you look at the

0:11:37.920,0:11:41.519
back right

0:11:38.480,0:11:42.079
it looks like a almost like a 7 series

0:11:41.519,0:11:44.480
s-class

0:11:42.079,0:11:45.519
kind of feel in the back because you

0:11:44.480,0:11:48.079
have the

0:11:45.519,0:11:49.920
thai support and you know sharath put

0:11:48.079,0:11:52.639
the curtains at the side

0:11:49.920,0:11:54.000
so it gives a very kind of like atas

0:11:52.639,0:11:56.160
premium kind of

0:11:54.000,0:11:57.120
feeling but you’re not paying a premium

0:11:56.160,0:11:58.800
price yeah

0:11:57.120,0:12:01.040
that’s the thing yeah i mean the legroom

0:11:58.800,0:12:03.519
is really fantastic at the back

0:12:01.040,0:12:05.040
you know my family is not very tall so

0:12:03.519,0:12:06.000
so they’re actually able to stretch

0:12:05.040,0:12:08.240
their legs out

0:12:06.000,0:12:09.120
and actually be very comfortable in long

0:12:08.240,0:12:11.279
runs and

0:12:09.120,0:12:12.720
for this car actually i mean before i

0:12:11.279,0:12:14.480
bought this car i was actually renting

0:12:12.720,0:12:16.160
a car every other month going to

0:12:14.480,0:12:18.320
malaysia so i love going to

0:12:16.160,0:12:19.200
long road trips uh into malaysia and i

0:12:18.320,0:12:20.560
realized you know

0:12:19.200,0:12:22.000
having the backseat passengers

0:12:20.560,0:12:24.160
comfortable it makes your road trip a

0:12:22.000,0:12:24.160
lot

0:12:36.959,0:12:40.240
about the features this car is quite

0:12:38.720,0:12:43.279
feature packed as well

0:12:40.240,0:12:44.560
yeah and the leather is really uh

0:12:43.279,0:12:46.720
i feel like it’s very high quality

0:12:44.560,0:12:48.000
leather yeah really feels very high

0:12:46.720,0:12:49.279
quality

0:12:48.000,0:12:52.079
actually speaking of the features right

0:12:49.279,0:12:54.399
one of the key features that i

0:12:52.079,0:12:55.600
went for that made me choose to go for

0:12:54.399,0:12:57.200
the lnk variant

0:12:55.600,0:12:58.800
was the presence of adaptive cruise

0:12:57.200,0:13:01.200
control which the normal

0:12:58.800,0:13:03.040
superb did not have and uh during one of

0:13:01.200,0:13:06.079
my road trips in australia i kind of

0:13:03.040,0:13:06.880
drove a car with acc and it’s it

0:13:06.079,0:13:09.120
actually

0:13:06.880,0:13:10.000
makes your morning commute especially on

0:13:09.120,0:13:11.200
the expressway

0:13:10.000,0:13:13.760
very easy because it actually just

0:13:11.200,0:13:15.120
follows the car in front of you and uh

0:13:13.760,0:13:16.480
that’s uh that’s why i wanted that

0:13:15.120,0:13:17.120
feature because it also improves the

0:13:16.480,0:13:19.440
mileage

0:13:17.120,0:13:21.040
overall the car right i can be a bit of

0:13:19.440,0:13:22.320
a heavy footer drivers at that time so

0:13:21.040,0:13:24.880
when i’m using the acc

0:13:22.320,0:13:26.800
it just pulls you forward uh and you

0:13:24.880,0:13:28.560
know my office is in changi while i live

0:13:26.800,0:13:30.480
in chochukong so

0:13:28.560,0:13:32.560
yeah so you know in the morning commute

0:13:30.480,0:13:33.360
sometimes it can be a bit of a distance

0:13:32.560,0:13:35.360
so yeah

0:13:33.360,0:13:36.399
acc really helps a lot okay yeah that’s

0:13:35.360,0:13:37.600
a good feature for me

0:13:36.399,0:13:39.440
i think it’s a bit pointless for me to

0:13:37.600,0:13:40.800
go into sports mode because uh i

0:13:39.440,0:13:42.800
probably

0:13:40.800,0:13:44.560
traffic isn’t that good today to be very

0:13:42.800,0:13:45.600
honest you can go onto your expressway

0:13:44.560,0:13:49.120
if you try it out yeah

0:13:45.600,0:13:51.680
sure but sports it can be

0:13:49.120,0:13:52.240
you know it’s still it’s not the rs245

0:13:51.680,0:13:53.440
you know where

0:13:52.240,0:13:55.519
it’s like a mad dog this one’s still

0:13:53.440,0:13:57.360
very much in the control you know

0:13:55.519,0:13:59.600
it is powerful enough it’s powerful

0:13:57.360,0:14:01.279
enough yeah in fact it’s to me when i

0:13:59.600,0:14:03.440
drive i always drive in sports mode

0:14:01.279,0:14:04.880
oh it’s much more fun if you realize the

0:14:03.440,0:14:07.760
the honest reality of drawing conformal

0:14:04.880,0:14:08.639
it’s a bit boring yeah it can be the

0:14:07.760,0:14:11.519
steering

0:14:08.639,0:14:12.000
and all that is not very fun i would say

0:14:11.519,0:14:13.600
yeah

0:14:12.000,0:14:15.440
sport mode is definitely much more fun

0:14:13.600,0:14:16.000
and when you drive in comfort mode also

0:14:15.440,0:14:18.160
the

0:14:16.000,0:14:19.600
suspension right it’s a bit bouncy uh

0:14:18.160,0:14:20.800
sports more at least you get that feel

0:14:19.600,0:14:23.279
you can feel some of the bumps

0:14:20.800,0:14:24.000
uh it gives you a bit more driver feel i

0:14:23.279,0:14:25.760
would say yeah

0:14:24.000,0:14:27.199
so one thing i want to point out do you

0:14:25.760,0:14:29.040
feel like you can feel the engine

0:14:27.199,0:14:30.959
vibrations in the cabin

0:14:29.040,0:14:32.079
yeah sometimes right yeah i can feel in

0:14:30.959,0:14:33.680
the pedals yeah yeah

0:14:32.079,0:14:36.399
sometimes that so i think that the

0:14:33.680,0:14:39.199
engine mounting is uh

0:14:36.399,0:14:40.480
it’s a new car so i i don’t think it’s a

0:14:39.199,0:14:42.000
mounting i’m not um there are a few

0:14:40.480,0:14:44.959
other cars that i drove where

0:14:42.000,0:14:45.680
brand new ones also where i felt the um

0:14:44.959,0:14:49.199
yeah i felt

0:14:45.680,0:14:52.079
the vibrations in the in the pedals so

0:14:49.199,0:14:52.959
uh you know not uh exactly the best kind

0:14:52.079,0:14:55.040
of feeling yeah

0:14:52.959,0:14:56.079
yeah yeah yeah you can you you’re right

0:14:55.040,0:14:57.279
in the era

0:14:56.079,0:14:58.800
and i think i think that’s that’s

0:14:57.279,0:15:00.800
something that uh you know there was

0:14:58.800,0:15:02.639
also time when sometimes the aircon

0:15:00.800,0:15:04.079
you know there’s a bit jattery sometimes

0:15:02.639,0:15:06.240
you can hear the vents

0:15:04.079,0:15:09.920
a little bit yeah it it it does have

0:15:06.240,0:15:09.920
that it’s like little kings

0:15:10.160,0:15:14.160
quality control issues like uh if you

0:15:12.560,0:15:15.760
look at the back uh

0:15:14.160,0:15:18.000
my fake the egg fake exhaust tips right

0:15:15.760,0:15:20.480
the chrome thing very easy to come off

0:15:18.000,0:15:21.360
you can feel the cheap the that cheap

0:15:20.480,0:15:23.600
plasticky

0:15:21.360,0:15:25.279
it’s kind of uh yeah you can feel the

0:15:23.600,0:15:26.959
certain parts

0:15:25.279,0:15:28.320
yeah that reminds you that it is good

0:15:26.959,0:15:29.360
after all

0:15:28.320,0:15:31.920
i’m not sure you’re gonna put that in

0:15:29.360,0:15:34.079
but it’s recording

0:15:31.920,0:15:35.360
okay i’ll leave it to you but yeah there

0:15:34.079,0:15:37.600
are some things here and there

0:15:35.360,0:15:39.839
i would say so the question how superb

0:15:37.600,0:15:39.839
is this

0:15:40.399,0:15:44.320
yeah i love that question it’s it’s i

0:15:42.800,0:15:44.800
would say it’s it’s definitely very

0:15:44.320,0:15:48.320
superb

0:15:44.800,0:15:51.199
very sad very superfly i think uh so far

0:15:48.320,0:15:53.120
everybody that i have driven around um

0:15:51.199,0:15:55.120
or who has tried my car has

0:15:53.120,0:15:57.120
only had positive yeah good experience

0:15:55.120,0:15:59.199
so and i guess it’s also because when

0:15:57.120,0:15:59.759
you get into a skoda most singaporeans

0:15:59.199,0:16:02.160
don’t really

0:15:59.759,0:16:03.360
know what they’re getting in for and and

0:16:02.160,0:16:04.800
uh they they

0:16:03.360,0:16:07.040
you know they’re more used to the mercs

0:16:04.800,0:16:09.360
vm or the kind of uh

0:16:07.040,0:16:10.800
you know branding so yeah i think the

0:16:09.360,0:16:13.519
lower expectations

0:16:10.800,0:16:15.600
going in helps to sort of make the

0:16:13.519,0:16:17.839
experience a lot more positive right so

0:16:15.600,0:16:19.360
yeah i mean just for me personally i

0:16:17.839,0:16:21.040
think value for money you’re right yeah

0:16:19.360,0:16:22.639
really for money because of the features

0:16:21.040,0:16:25.519
the comfort

0:16:22.639,0:16:25.920
uh this you want to get this in like an

0:16:25.519,0:16:28.399
audi

0:16:25.920,0:16:30.079
bm mercedes yeah you’re gonna be paying

0:16:28.399,0:16:33.120
a lot a lot more a lot more

0:16:30.079,0:16:34.639
uh performance also adequately yeah no

0:16:33.120,0:16:37.199
i mean i don’t even have to drive fast i

0:16:34.639,0:16:40.399
can feel like the pool is there already

0:16:37.199,0:16:42.800
yeah uh i think the downside

0:16:40.399,0:16:44.320
probably the branding not as strong yet

0:16:42.800,0:16:46.560
in singapore

0:16:44.320,0:16:48.000
uh if you are very particular about

0:16:46.560,0:16:50.720
interior right

0:16:48.000,0:16:51.839
then also maybe a drawback yeah because

0:16:50.720,0:16:53.360
you can see from here

0:16:51.839,0:16:56.720
you know the idea of the car can’t

0:16:53.360,0:16:56.720
really match with like audi

0:16:57.360,0:17:01.440
and then uh last thing i think this is

0:16:59.440,0:17:04.880
the thing that i dislike the most

0:17:01.440,0:17:06.240
probably the vibrations mother and dad

0:17:04.880,0:17:08.240
i mean if you don’t really care about

0:17:06.240,0:17:10.799
these three things then i think this is

0:17:08.240,0:17:12.880
an excellent choice definitely yeah

0:17:10.799,0:17:16.400
anything else you want to share whatever

0:17:12.880,0:17:19.280
uh not really i mean i i guess uh

0:17:16.400,0:17:19.760
being a first first-time car owner it uh

0:17:19.280,0:17:21.280
was

0:17:19.760,0:17:23.600
quite a bit of an experience for me to

0:17:21.280,0:17:25.919
get used to the the length

0:17:23.600,0:17:27.120
and the width of the car as well uh

0:17:25.919,0:17:28.559
parking is something that i’m still

0:17:27.120,0:17:30.240
getting used to

0:17:28.559,0:17:32.960
uh in this car it comes with pocket

0:17:30.240,0:17:35.919
seats uh but i’ve only tried it

0:17:32.960,0:17:37.039
but i but i view camera uh yeah it

0:17:35.919,0:17:38.320
doesn’t know it doesn’t have different

0:17:37.039,0:17:40.240
side view thing um

0:17:38.320,0:17:41.360
i haven’t really tried it as well but

0:17:40.240,0:17:43.760
but honestly i’ve

0:17:41.360,0:17:44.880
put in park assist a couple of times it

0:17:43.760,0:17:46.880
works i would say

0:17:44.880,0:17:47.919
most of the time most of the time it

0:17:46.880,0:17:49.760
does um

0:17:47.919,0:17:51.440
but there are times when you know if uh

0:17:49.760,0:17:54.640
there’s too many cars by the side

0:17:51.440,0:17:55.200
then it gets confused right and um but

0:17:54.640,0:17:57.120
yeah

0:17:55.200,0:17:58.559
to be honest i think that again i think

0:17:57.120,0:17:59.280
it’s more of like just getting used to

0:17:58.559,0:18:00.799
driving

0:17:59.280,0:18:02.640
kind of a thing more than this specific

0:18:00.799,0:18:03.840
car for me uh

0:18:02.640,0:18:05.600
but yeah you’re right in the sense that

0:18:03.840,0:18:06.799
even though it looks like a very big car

0:18:05.600,0:18:08.880
it doesn’t feel like

0:18:06.799,0:18:10.880
yeah but it still feels sturdy you know

0:18:08.880,0:18:11.200
like uh like when you close the door

0:18:10.880,0:18:14.240
when

0:18:11.200,0:18:17.280
you pull the door it’s heavy sturdy so

0:18:14.240,0:18:18.799
it i had test driven japanese cars um

0:18:17.280,0:18:20.160
before i bought this one so

0:18:18.799,0:18:22.160
you know that sturdy fuel is something

0:18:20.160,0:18:24.000
that i really did like yeah

0:18:22.160,0:18:25.440
okay so yeah that’s about it guys for

0:18:24.000,0:18:27.039
this review thank you so much for

0:18:25.440,0:18:30.960
