PACE AND SPACE

Meet the New Octavia RS

Powerful design

Powerful design

Power can’t be measured by a stopwatch. Nor can it be fully evoked with pretty words. It’s an emotion that can only be experienced by watching the world blur away at the mere press of your right foot.

The new Octavia RS sets pulses racing even when standing still. With sporty styling and equally impressive LED headlamps, the racy intentions of this car are revealed as quickly as the horses rushing under its bonnet.


 

Tailgate spoiler

Tailgate spoiler

The Octavia RS features a functional boot spoiler, designed to increase the stability of the vehicle above 80kph by generating aerodynamic downforce. The Octavia RS Wagon also has a functional tailgate spoiler that performs similarly, being larger and more boldly shaped than other Octavia Wagons.

The exhaust pipe end pieces in chrome finish further accentuate the sporty look of the car. Another bespoke detail is a reflective strip, making the car easy to spot in the dark.


Colourful experience

Colourful experience

Keen to drive a car that everyone will notice, or would you rather fade into the background? The colour range for the ŠKODA Octavia RS is large enough for everyone to pick exactly what he or she wants. Have your Octavia RS in any colour you like – and it doesn't have to be black!


 


 

Engines

High power and low fuel consumption are the hallmarks of the two engines for the new Octavia RS. The car with a 230 HP 2.0 TSI petrol engine speeds up to 250 km/h. Those opting for a 184 HP 2.0 TDI diesel can enjoy top speed of 232 km/h. The Octavia Wagon RS achieves driving performance similar to the initial liftback with the same engines, delivering a top speed of 247 km/h with a petrol engine and 230 km/h with a diesel engine.


 

Award Winning Design and Safety

Award Winning Design and Safety

The New Octavia RS leads the pack in design and safety.

Winner of the 2017 Red Dot Design award for the Octavia Wagon, the jury of 40 leading international designers were most impressed by the clean and clear-cut lines that feature across the car, inspired by Bohemian crystal glass art. The powerful combination of aesthetics and functionality saw the design of the New Octavia RS triumph over the competition.

The New Octavia RS is one of the safest cars available on the market today. It has achieved a 5 Star Euro NCAP safety rating by combining a robust, high quality safety cell design with some of the most advanced driver assistance technologies available today including radar enabled Predictive Pedestrian Protection and Blind Sport Detect.



Dress code: Sporty

Exceptional spaciousness meets sporty style in the interior, which comes in an exclusive black design. While the driver enjoys the atmosphere of the sports cockpit, passengers indulge in maximum comfort.

The attractive upholstery in a combination of fabric and Alcantara® is available with red or grey stitching. The original RS logo is embroidered on the backrests.


Personal settings

Personal settings

The personalisation mode lets different drivers call up their “own” individual settings immediately after activating the car. The car distinguishes the various users by the key they use to unlock it, and adjusts the settings accordingly based on the corresponding profile that has been saved. Personalisation is delivered with 3 keys (3 personalised profiles) as part of Performance Mode Select.


Sports steering wheel

The designers created highly dynamic 18" alloy wheels for the Octavia RS. If you want to go even further, choose to upgrade to a choice of 19" Xtreme wheels in anthracite or silver.


 


 

Advanced systems

Much like the new Octavia, the new Octavia RS features an impressive array of assists to make mobility safer and more comfortable.


 


 

Adaptive Cruise Control: Maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead at a selected speed, controlling the engine and actuating the brakes to automatically accelerate or decelerate as needed. The system combines a cruise control system with a radar-based distance controller.


 

Predictive Pedestrian Protection: Front Assist works with a radar sensor integrated into the radiator grille, constantly monitoring the distance from the traffic ahead. Predictive Pedestrian Protection complements the Front Assist. At speeds between 10 and 60 km/h it performs an emergency stop if a pedestrian dangerously attempts to cross the path of the car. At speeds over 40 km/h, an additional collision warning follows.


 

Blind Spot Detect Helps the driver to change lanes safely by registering any vehicles in the blind spot. Two radar sensors located in the lower part of the rear bumper monitor the area beside and up to 20 metres behind the ŠKODA Octavia Scout. When the system detects vehicles in the blind spot next to the car or approaching from behind, an LED symbol in the wing mirror lights up to alert the driver. If the driver indicates in the direction of the detected vehicle, the LED starts to flash, indicating the possible danger to the driver.

Dynamic chassis control (DCC): For maximum driving pleasure, you have the option of fitting your OCTAVIA RS with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), incorporating Performance Mode Select. DCC allows drivers to customise the vehicle’s handling to their personal preferences: Normal, Sport or Comfort – a sort of “à la carte” chassis setup..


Trailer Assist: Want to buy a new caravan, but reversing it is the stuff of nightmares? The new Trailer Assist takes control when you reverse slowly with a caravan. All you have to do is decide where to reverse to, when to start and when to stop. A cinch.
