Dear Tanay, One can't really compare these three cars. However, the CLA has the cache of the three-pointed star, and if you've always aspired to own a Mercedes, then it can prove hard to resist. It is quite small on the inside though, so you might be disappointed with legroom and headroom, especially at the rear. And it won't be cheap either, retailing for a substantial premium over the Superb or Octavia. Coming to the two Skodas, the Superb is obviously a much bigger car, and if you re chauffer-driven more often than not, you must buy this car. Rear seat comfort is amongst the best of any sedan in the Indian market at almost any price point. The Octavia though appears to be the best bet from all angles, considering that it is a brand new model, and has the latest technological architecture. It has a great choice of engines as well, and is packed with features. Most importantly, it comes at an honest price.
