Set to go on sale in the United Kingdom on August 1, the new Octavia RS can be had with a choice of two engines - a 2.0-liter TSI petrol unit (220 HP) and a 2.0-liter TDI mill - and either a six-speed manual gearbox or a DSG automatic transmission.
The vehicle is equipped with several standard features, including 18-inch Gemini anthracite alloy wheels, acoustic rear parking sensors, automatic post collision braking system, black door mirrors and handles, daytime LED running lights, and dual zone air conditioning.
“The new Octavia vRS has a very special place in the heart of everyone at Skoda,” said Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director Skoda UK. “It unites our love of motorsport, sharp design and bold engineering, and is one of the most exciting cars we’ve ever made. We’re confident that the new Octavia’s unique mix of space, practicality and performance give it a real edge in an area of the market where we have enjoyed fantastic growth over recent years.”
The vehicle based on the third-generation Octavia will be showcased at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which is scheduled later this week.
