Skoda is back with the Octavia RS and this is the second RS to have the Octavia badge as remember the earlier Octavia was called as Laura in India. The Octavia Rs is priced at a rather attractive Rs 24.6 lakh which makes it easily the most powerful and fun to drive car at this price.
The Octavia RS in essense is a sportier version of the standard Octavia. The main talking point is the engine which is a 2.0 turbo petrol with 230 bhp and 350Nm.
Performance is in plentiful with a top-speed of 250 km/h and a 0-100 km/h time of 6.8 seconds. The Octavia RS gets a 6-speed DSG.
Make no mistake as the Octavia RS is a proper piece of kit with being lowered 15 cm and getting a limited slip differential and bigger 17 inch wheels.
The Octavia RS comes in four colours and comes with the full RS styling with an aggressive body kit. There is a new grille, bigger wheels, full LED headlamps with DRLs, LED tail-lamps, rear spoiler, exhausts. The interior also gets a sporty makeover with Alcantara sports seats with red stitching, sports steering wheel, ambient lighting.
