2013 Skoda Octavia RS and Octavia Combi RS [video]
The 3rd generation of Skoda Octavia RS made its official debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. This is the fastest production Octavia ever made not only in straight line, but in the corners, too.
There are two engines in the range – a 2.0 liter TDI and a 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol. The 2.0 liter petrol delivers 220HP (162 kW), which means 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 248 km/h (154 mph), while the 2.0 liter TDI has only 184HP (135 kW) – 0-100 km/h in 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).
The standard extras include sports suspension, MacPherson strut, Electronic differential lock XDS and electronic stability control (ESC).
Other highlights include an aggressive front bumper with LED DRLs, honeycomb mesh grille inserts, bi-xenon headlights, a dual exhaust system and 18" alloy wheels. The interior boasts sports seats, a three-spoke steering wheel and ambient lighting. There's also dual-zone climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system.
