Meet the Most Powerful Octavia Yet – The ŠKODA Octavia vRS 245!

We’re proud to introduce you to the latest member of the growing ŠKODA family. The latest ŠKODA Octavia vRS 245 tops the range and takes the accolade for most powerful Octavia ever made! The latest Octavia boasts evidently sporty credentials whilst offering space and practicality to the envy of competitor models. The ‘Simply Clever’ ethos rings true and is no different with the latest Octavia vRS 245, as ŠKODA integrate a vast range of new driver assistance systems and technology.

Performance Power

The power output of the latest Octavia vRS 245 increases to 245 PS thanks to the new 2.0 TSI turbocharged petrol engine. The new Octavia flaunts a 7-speed direct-shift transmission for the very first time and enjoys the addition of the VAQ limited-slip differential. These changes mean the Octavia vRS 245 can achieve a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) and a 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.6 seconds!

The sports chassis has lowered the body of the latest vRS 245 by 15 mm and its rear track is 30mm wider than that of the predecessor, the ŠKODA Octavia vRS 230. All this equates to an impressive performance that beats every other Octavia ever made!

Driver Assistance Systems & Infotainment

Driver assistance systems have previously only been seen in models in higher segments, however the latest Octavia vRS 245 changes this. Featuring Front Assist with the City Emergency Brake function, the Octavia vRS 245 takes the very latest in driver assistance. The vRS 245 also features Predictive Pedestrian Protection to help prevent accidents in city traffic, this is complimented by the radar sensor which can recognise critical situations.

The latest Octavia features Blind Spot Detect which uses sensors to monitor traffic behind the vehicle, radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which maintains a desired gap in traffic by accelerating and braking automatically, and Lane Assist to help keep the vehicle in lane.

The new Octavia vRS is available with Driver Alert fatigue detection and the camera based Travel Assist, which recognises traffic signs and informs the driver about speed limits and other signs. Thanks to Park Assist 3.0, the vehicle will automatically steer into parallel parking spaces and bays. There’s a broad range of additional driver assistance systems available including: High Beam Assist, Hill-Hold Control, Trailer Assist and more!

ŠKODA Connect

The new ŠKODA Connect service offers drivers a new generation of mobile online services. The ŠKODA Connect service takes navigation, information, entertainment and assistance to a new level, by delivering connected services and remote access, whilst also integrating a range of online infotainment services.

Thanks to infotainment online, drivers will benefit from online traffic information and live local data. This means that drivers can view alternative routes in the event of a traffic jam, find the nearest parking spaces and find petrol stations en-route which even includes real-time fuel prices.

The benefit of being in a connected vehicle is that there are services on hand to assist you in an emergency. The new ŠKODA Octavia vRS 245 is no different. In the event of an accident, the vehicle can contact a dedicated emergency call centre and relay information using voice and data connections. Using a similar setup, drivers can also take advantage of the Breakdown Call function which helps in the event of a breakdown.

All these features perfectly compliment ŠKODA’s ‘Simply Clever’ ethos, and this time it packages the latest in technology with the latest in performance to deliver a real powerful family contender.
