Skoda are doing a great job with the cars at the moment, the new Octavia really looks the peice and what a great advert they have released to show off the car. Good job Skoda.
In the new Octavia vRS range there will be two engines available – a 2.0 TSI with 220bhp and a 2.0 TDI with 184bhp – both with six-speed manual gearboxes. The TSI version accelerates from 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 154mph making it the fastest Octavia model ever. The TDI does the same 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds.
As well as having more power, the new engines are also more economical, around 20 per cent compared to the previous vRS, thanks to start/stop and brake energy regeneration. There is also a DSG automatic available as an option.
I’m yet to drive one of these models yet, but hope to do so in the near future.
