Czech car manufacturer, Skoda, has launched its latest performance-focused product in India, the Octavia RS at Rs 24.62 lakhs (ex-showroom, India). The new model is available in top-spec Style-Plus variant. The new Octavia RS shares its overall design element with the standard Octavia, but it gets that extra bit of sportier overtones.

Mechanically, the new Skoda Octavia RS is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates 230bhp of power and 350Nm of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox that powers the front wheels. The Octavia RS sprints from 0-100kmph in under seven seconds and its top speed is electronically restricted to 250kmph.

As for the exterior, the newly launched Octavia RS gets the quad LED headlamps and a blackened butterfly grille with the RS badge. The car gets a functional body kit which includes a tail gate spoiler, 17-inch alloys and side skirts. It also gets large twin exhausts at the rear. Inside, the Octavia RS gets an all-black theme and the Alcantra seats get unique red stitching with the RS badge. The car gets carbon finish door inserts and a flat bottom steering wheel for that sporty quotient. The dashboard flaunts a large 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Since the new Skoda Octavia RS is based on the top-spec Octavia variant, the RS comes loaded with convenience and safety features like the electronically adjustable seats, sunroof, rear AC events, ABS with EBD and multiple airbags. Skoda’s latest product in India has been designed and developed purely for performance car enthusiasts in the country who would like that extra bit of performance in everyday driving.
