MODEL DESCRIPTION

Love speed, but at the same time want to care for your family? Then the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS is the perfect car for you. Coupling 245 PS with an agile and secure chassis, it’s sure to get the adrenaline pumping through your veins. Speed does not come at the cost of the creature comforts, natural roominess or practicality of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA – the RS derivative is also available as a COMBI estate version. The OCTAVIA RS is available with manual or automatic transmission, and with a powerful yet economical TDI engine which is installed with all-wheel drive.

Highlights

Design

Design

An aggressive front bumper, a rear bumper with integrated tailpipes, a unique light alloy wheel design, and a striking fifth-door spoiler – everyone will recognise the sporty OCTAVIA RS at first glance. You can take your pick of 9 colours – Mamba Green and Steel Grey have been designed directly with the OCTAVIA RS in mind.

Interior

Interior

There are many ways in which the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS’s interior differs from that of ordinary versions of the OCTAVIA. Premium materials, such as leather and Suedia, complemented with stylish stitching and aluminium details, make taking a ride in the OCTAVIA RS feel just right.

Dynamic ride

Dynamic ride

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS features a sports chassis with shorter springs and more rigid RS-specific shock absorbers, making the ground clearance 15 mm lower. One of the OCTAVIA RS’s standard features is progressive steering, which helps to improve dynamic steering and comfort during low-speed manoeuvring.

Head-up display

Head-up display

The optional head-up display is a feature never seen before in a ŠKODA. It projects important information, such as current speed, navigation instructions, detected traffic signs, or active driver-assistance systems, directly on to the windscreen.

Safety

Safety

OCTAVIAs in the EU will be fitted with a central airbag on the inner side of the driver’s backrest as standard. This tenth airbag in the OCTAVIA’s interior is designed to protect the driver and front passenger from colliding into each other, especially if the car is hit from the side. Passenger safety is enhanced by a host of new advanced driver-assistance systems, including Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist and Exit Warning.
