Skoda Octavia vRS Line-Up Expanded With New Petrol And Diesel Models

Blue Skoda Octavia and White Skoda Octavia Estate

This autumn, Skoda plans to complete their successful Octavia vRS sports line by adding two new petrol and diesel models to the mix. This next-generation Skoda Octavia vRS is the fourth iteration of the sleek vRS line, the sporty cousins of the ever-popular Octavia hatchback and estate. 

From 0 To 60 In Under 7 Seconds

The plug-in hybrid vRS model was released to critical acclaim, boasting 0-62mph in barely over seven seconds, and 242bhp. The two new diesel and petrol models promise the same success. The 2.0-litre petrol turbo can take 0-62mph in under seven seconds, with a top speed of over 150mph, 242 bhp, and 370Nm torque. Pair the engine with a choice of either six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic DSG gearbox and choose between front or four-wheel drive capabilities.

The 2.0-litre diesel model offers 197bhp, the full DSG seven-speed automatic gearbox, and all-wheel drive capabilities. To date, the vRS range has been responsible for over 1 in 5 Skoda sales worldwide, so you know that the fourth generation can only offer an enhanced experience to you as a driver.

The plug-in hybrid matches the full bhp power of the petrol model, along with low carbon dioxide emissions averaging 30g/ km. From plug-in to full charge in under 2 hours, you can have all the benefits of the petrol model in an electric form. 

Superior Tech Experience with Skoda Octavia vRS

The Skoda Octavia vRS also offers a superior-tech experience, with the enhanced lighting system offering stylish LED light displays. Tailor the lighting of your dashboard and footwell to create colours that make your vehicle truly unique. 

The 10-inch virtual cockpit promises tri-zone climate control, no-key entry, control, and an integrated entertainment system with a fully connected MIB3 interface. The seats are heated so you can be kept in comfort, with electronically adjustable seats to tailor your driving experience. 

vRS iV: Upgraded Sports Design

From the trim to the interior, the fourth-generation Skoda Octavia vRS models both offer an enhanced sports experience. From the gloss black exterior to the carbon-effect interior trim, the petrol and diesel model’s sleek design complements the speed of the new Skoda Octavia vRS line perfectly. The sophisticated black design also features black door mirrors, black grille, and a black rear spoiler for the hatchback models.

The sports seats are available in Alcantara trim, and next-level tech is on-hand with the digital virtual cockpit. The 18-19 inch alloy wheels, wider stylish front bumpers and red brake callipers all combine to create a polished upgrade on the traditional Octavia model. Air curtains and twin tailpipes are also a welcome addition to the new generation models.
