On Thursday the 11th July 2013, the new ŠKODA Octavia vRS made its worldwide debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The new Octavia vRS showcases a host of engineering innovations, a dramatic new design and pulse-quickening performance.
The new TSI and TDI engines available on the third-generation model offer phenomenal performance whilst the vRS’s best ever fuel economy figures means that power doesn’t compromise efficiency. Offered in both Hatch and Estate forms, the new Octavia vRS delivers the perfect combination of sportiness, space and functionality.
Designed with performance in mind the exterior features a rear spoiler, front and rear diffusers and twin stainless steel exhaust pipes along with the Bi-Xenon lights with LED daytime running lights, all of which hint at the performance capability of the new vRS. The front of the car is dominated by the characteristic ŠKODA front grille sporting the vRS badge, distinctive honeycomb air intakes, and a new vRS-styled front bumper. The focal point of the streamlined rear is the distinctive black diffuser, which creates a dynamic style made even more powerful by the integral reflector above it.
The interior of the vRS is also styled to provide a dynamic appearance with sculptured sports seats; stainless steel pedals, a 3-spoke leather steering wheel and vRS kick plates.
The vRS comes with a choice of petrol and diesel engines and a range of metallic and non-metallic colours, including three colours, which are exclusive to the new vRS: Meteor Grey metallic, Rallye Green metallic and Sprint Yellow.
Modern safety systems are available on the new ŠKODA Octavia vRS including Front Assistant and Automatic Braking, Lane Assistant, Multicollision Brake, Crew Protection Assistant and Driver Activity Assistant. A range of new generation radio and radio-navigation systems are available too.
The new Octavia vRS will be open for ordering from the 17th July 2013.
