The performance focused sibling of the Octavia, the Octavia RS was an instant success when it was introduced in India last year. Within two months of its launch in the country, all 250 units of the Octavia RS were sold out. This time around, the company has started accepting bookings for the vehicle in advance and deliveries will commence during the festive season.
The Skoda Octavia RS is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 230bhp of power and 350Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed dual clutch gearbox and aiding all this power is a trick front differential, lowered ride height and stiffer suspension that gives the car better handling.
Apart from the impressive performance, the Octavia RS comes loaded with convenience and safety features, in the form of electronically adjustable seats, sunroof, rear AC vents, ABS with EBD and multiple airbags. Differentiating it on the outside is a functional body kit which includes a tail gate spoiler, 17-inch alloys with side skirts and other sportier bits.
