The ŠKODA Octavia vRS showcases the athletic potential of the range, both visually and in motion. Similarly to the standard Octavia, the vRS can be chosen as an estate or a hatchback, but two brand new paintwork shades – Rallye Green and Race Blue – keep it one of a kind.
ŠKODA has designed the vRS to get your heart beating faster from the first look. It sits poised on 18-inch anthracite alloy wheels, dazzling with bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights. Just as with the standard Octavia estate, the vRS version includes roof rails and features a subtly longer wheelbase. There is also a special vRS 230 edition, marked out by aggressive gloss black details such as the exhaust pipes and exclusive vRS badging.
Stainless steel pedals and carefully sculpted seats give the cabin the feel of an immersive race car cockpit. You will find an ergonomic multi-function steering wheel at the driver's position, and a load-through armrest in the back. The rear seats additionally fold, making 1,740 litres of boot space.
The car's capabilities are demonstrated by any of the 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines available.
It takes as little as seven seconds for the Octavia vRS to rocket to 60mph from a standstill.
Selectable 'Performance Mode' instantly adjusts the car's dynamics for a track-inspired feel.
Following Euro NCAP testing, the Octavia estate and hatchback took home a five-star safety score. Trust in the vRS model to keep you and your passengers secure. The ESC has been enhanced to include even more braking, traction and stability assistances. One reassurance which remains is the full complement of seven surrounding airbags.
All journeys are simplified by the Amundsen navigation system, part of a wide-ranging infotainment package fitted as standard. Access menus and functions quickly via the touchscreen, without breaking your concentration. You can also switch on cruise control and the in-cabin WiFi hotspot to make things even easier.
