Skoda Octavia vRS Estate [UK] Introducing – 2022

ŠKODA completes the introduction of its bestseller’s fourth generation with the launch of the Octavia vRS. The new range-topping Octavia boasts even higher levels of safety and new assistance systems, more comfort and modern connectivity features. Never before has ŠKODA offered as many powertrain variants as in the latest-generation models.

The ŠKODA Octavia vRS iV – the brand’s first-ever vRS model to feature plug-in hybrid drive – is now followed by petrol and diesel. For the first time, the Octavia vRS is available with a choice of three powertrains. The 2.0 TDI from the new EVO generation now produces 147 kW (200 PS) and comes with either front- or all-wheel drive. The new EVO variant of the 2.0 TSI, which has an output of 180 kW (245 PS), and the Octavia vRS iV, that delivers 180 kW (245 PS), are front-wheel drive.

With a drag coefficient (cd) from 0.25, the Octavia vRS is extremely aerodynamic, which results in lower CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. Many of its body parts have been aerodynamically optimised, including the air curtains in the front bumper, the aeroflaps, the diffuser on the rear apron and the hatchback’s vRS rear spoiler. Its light alloy wheels also contribute to better aerodynamics.

Following the launch of the Octavia vRS iV as the first vRS model to feature plug-in hybrid drive, the compact sports car can now be ordered with either the biggest petrol engine or the most powerful diesel in the range. As with the Octavia vRS iV plug-in hybrid, the latest EVO-generation 2.0 TSI delivers 180 kW (245 PS). The 2.0 TDI’s power output is 147 kW (200 PS).
