Skoda unveiled the new Octavia RS generation in March. But then it was only on the hybrid version of the RS iV with charging from the wall. Now, the RS family is enriched, and the more traditional versions.
The most conservative option (at least in the understanding of the Russians) – with a petrol turbo 2.0 TSI with an output of 245 HP combined with a 6-speed “mechanics” or 7-speed “robot”. Acceleration to 100 km/h in 6,8 or 6.7 seconds, top speed – 250 km/h.
The diesel version with the engine 2.0 TDI has a power of 200 HP This Octavia RS will be available only with the “robot”. While buyers can choose between front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Sprint 0-100 km/h takes 7.4 V or 6.8 seconds (all-wheel drive car faster), the maximum speed is 243 and 249 km/h respectively.
All Octavia RS with a label equipped with a sports suspension with lowering 15 mm relative to the “civilian” car and steering with a variable gear ratio. The optional adaptive suspension Dynamic Chassis Control.
Among other distinctive features of the Octavia RS it is possible to note a more aggressive front end design with a different bumper, unique led running lights, black accents in the exterior, as well as the signature 18 – and 19-inch wheels. The cabin is fitted with a digital instrument cluster, a media system with a larger display and standard center airbag (a first for Skoda).
