New Skoda Octavia vRS 245 arrives at dealer ahead of launch – Spy Shots
Delivers 15 PS more than the current fastest Octavia, the vRS 230.
Based on the new Skoda Octavia vRS, the new Octavia RS 245, made its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Skoda India detailed the technical aspects of the car last week. To be launched in the coming weeks, the new Octavia vRS has now been spied at a dealership.
2017 Skoda Octavia vRS is powered by the same 2.0l petrol TFSI, but delivers 245 PS, 15 PS more than the current fastest Octavia – the vRS 230. Apart from power, torque output too has been increased by 20 Nm to a total of 370 Nm. This means that the new Skoda Octavia vRS 245 is as powerful as the VW Golf GTI Performance.
Apart from extra power, the new Skoda Octavia vRS 245 also gets something which will make it even more fun while you are attacking those corners. In Skoda’s terms, Octavia vRS 230 gets “electronically controlled differential front axle lock” which will assist driver’s in dynamic cornering. This comes as standard.
Added power and this new tech translates into 0-100 kmph acceleration time of 6.6 seconds, and a top speed of 250 kmph. This makes Skoda Octavia vRS 245, the fastest Octavia till date. To match the sporty car, Skoda designers have also made some design changes on the exterior, like the new alloys, a spoiler on the bootlid, a red strip across the rear bumper, and some sporty interiors.
It is available as a sedan as well as a wagon. In India, only the sedan variant will be launched. New Octavia vRS 245 also comes with added safety, a new 9.2 inch infotainment system which is compatible with Android Auto and Apple Carplay. More details about the specs and technicalities will be revealed at the India debut event on the 10th of August. Until then, have a look at the detailed images below.
