Škoda's go-faster Octavia ready for August launch
The company’s performance twist on the latest Octavia, the RS, is available with either a 220bhp petrol engine or a 184bhp turbodiesel, which is packed into either the sleek hatchback or the load-lugging estate.
Alasdair Stewart, the company’s UK brand director, said: "The new Octavia vRS has a very special place in the heart of everyone at Škoda.
"It unites our love of motorsport, sharp design and bold engineering, and is one of the most exciting cars we’ve ever made."
The cheapest version, the petrol estate, starts at £22,990, with the entire Octavia RS range going on sale on August 1.
