Love dynamic cars, but at the same time want to have a car 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. Dynamics 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.
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.
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.
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.
The optional head-up display projects important information, such as current speed, navigation instructions, detected traffic signs, or active driver-assistance systems, directly on to the windscreen.
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 advanced driver-assistance systems, including Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist and Exit Warning.
