Octavia RS Wagon from $55,990 +ORC

Meet the New Octavia RS Wagon

This car sets pulses racing even when standing still. With sporty styling and equally impressive LED headlamps, the racy intentions of the OCTAVIA RS are revealed as quickly as the horses rushing under its bonnet. And with optional 4×4, this car is truly in a class of its own.

Powerful design

Power can’t be measured by a stopwatch. Nor can it be fully evoked with pretty words. It’s an emotion that can only be experienced by watching the world blur away at the mere press of your right foot.

Exhaust pipe

The exhaust pipe end pieces in chrome finish further accentuate the sporty look of the car. Another bespoke detail is a reflective strip, making the car easy to spot in the dark.

Colourful experience

Keen to drive a car that everyone will notice, or would you rather fade into the background? The colour range for the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS is large enough for everyone to pick exactly what he or she wants. Have your OCTAVIA RS in any colour you like – and it doesn’t have to be black!

Turbocharged engine

High power and low fuel consumption are the hallmarks of the two engines for the new OCTAVIA RS. The car with a 230 HP 2.0 TSI petrol engine speeds up to 250 km/h. Those opting for a 184 HP 2.0 TDI diesel can enjoy top speed of 232 km/h. The OCTAVIA COMBI RS achieves driving performance similar to the initial liftback with the same engines, delivering a top speed of 247 km/h with a petrol engine and 230 km/h with a diesel engine. For uprated pace, choose the new ŠKODA Octavia RS 245 edition for even more power, technology and attitude.

Dynamic performance

A high-performance chassis and advanced drivetrain tuned to ignite the senses. Whether it’s a track day or a spirited weekend drive, the Octavia RS is guaranteed to please. And when the clock fast forwards to Monday, you have supreme comfort, the latest infotainment technologies and the best space in class to get you through the week.

Dress Code: Sporty

Exceptional spaciousness meets sporty style in the interior, which comes in an exclusive black design. While the driver enjoys the atmosphere of the sports cockpit, passengers indulge in maximum comfort.

Comfort cockpit

The interior of the OCTAVIA RS is made more comfortable and familiar with soft, harmonious ambient lights running along the inside of the car.

Sporty in the rear too

The attractive upholstery in a combination of fabric and Alcantara® is available with red or grey stitching. The original RS logo is embroidered on the backrests.

Personal settings

The personalisation mode lets different drivers call up their “own” individual settings immediately after activating the car. The car distinguishes the various users by the key they use to unlock it, and adjusts the settings accordingly based on the corresponding profile that has been saved. Personalisation is delivered with 3 keys (3 personalised profiles) as part of Performance Mode Select.

Sports steering wheel

The sports multifunctional steering wheel in perforated leather, which lets you control the radio and phone with voice control and alternatively the DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox), can be equipped with heating function, controlled via the infotainment system.

Fast and precise gear change

Both engines for the OCTAVIA RS are available with a manual or a DSG dual clutch transmission, each as a six-speed.

Door sill strips

The practical door sill strips with an RS inscription accentuate the character of the car.

Advanced Systems

Much like the new OCTAVIA, the new OCTAVIA RS features an impressive array of assists to make mobility safer and more comfortable.

Predictive pedestrian protection

Front Assist works with a radar sensor integrated into the radiator grille, constantly monitoring the distance from the traffic ahead.

Predictive Pedestrian Protection complements the Front Assist. At speeds between 10 and 60 km/h it performs an emergency stop if a pedestrian dangerously attempts to cross the path of the car. At speeds over 40 km/h, an additional collision warning follows.

Adaptive cruise control

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead at a selected speed, controlling the engine and actuating the brakes to automatically accelerate or decelerate as needed. The system combines a cruise control system with a radar-based distance controller.

Blind spot detect

Blind Spot Detect helps the driver to change lanes safely by registering any vehicles in the blind spot.

Two radar sensors located in the lower part of the rear bumper monitor the area beside and up to 20 metres behind the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS.

When the system detects vehicles in the blind spot next to the car or approaching from behind, an LED symbol in the wing mirror lights up to alert the driver. If the driver indicates in the direction of the detected vehicle, the LED starts to flash, indicating the possible danger to the driver.

Dynamic chassis control (DCC)

For maximum driving pleasure, you have the option of fitting your OCTAVIA RS with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), incorporating Performance Mode Select. DCC allows drivers to customise the vehicle’s handling to their personal preferences: Normal, Sport or Comfort – a sort of “à la carte” chassis setup.​​

Trailer assist

Want to buy a new caravan, but reversing it is the stuff of nightmares? The new Trailer Assist takes control when you reverse slowly with a caravan. All you have to do is decide where to reverse to, when to start and when to stop. A cinch.

Award Winning Design and Safety

The New Octavia RS leads the pack in design and safety.

Winner of the 2017 Red Dot Design award for the Octavia Wagon, the jury of 40 leading international designers were most impressed by the clean and clear-cut lines that feature across the car, inspired by Bohemian crystal glass art. The powerful combination of aesthetics and functionality saw the design of the New Octavia RS triumph over the competition.

The New Octavia RS is one of the safest cars available on the market today. It has achieved a 5 Star Euro NCAP safety rating by combining a robust, high-quality safety cell design with some of the most advanced driver assistance technologies available today including radar enabled Predictive Pedestrian Protection and Blind Sport Detect.

Airbags

We hope you never need the nine airbags that come standard in every OCTAVIA RS & RS 245 Wagon. They’re located at the front, front side, curtain, and driver’s knee area. Overseas image shown.

Prefill braking

Prefill Braking is a safety feature that anticipates your next step — literally. The OCTAVIA RS & RS 245 can recognise when you may be about to brake sharply and prepares by ‘prefilling’ the brake hydraulics with fluid. It also brings the brake pads closer to the discs, helping you stop safer, sooner.

Rear view camera and rear parking sensors

Some forward thinking for when you’re going backwards. A Rear View Camera+, Front and Rear Parking Sensors+, standard across the OCTAVIA range, help you back out of your driveway with peace of mind and tackle those tricky reverse parks with confidence.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.

Light assist with rain sensor

The OCTAVIA RS & RS 245 is packed with features for a rainy day. Light Assist automatically adapts to changing light conditions, while the rain sensor adjusts the speed of the wipers depending on light or heavy rainfall.

Passenger protect assist

A car that braces for impact? That’s seriously smart. Passenger Protect Assist uses information from the car’s braking and electronic system to ready for impact when there is a high chance of collision. In such an event, the front seat belts will tighten and the sunroof (if equipped) and windows will close to keep you in the best position for airbag deployment.

Lane assist

Ever noticed how when your mind starts to wander, so does your car? Lane Assist**+ uses a camera positioned within the rear-view mirror unit to actively recognise lane markings and, if you begin to stray, take corrective action to gently steer you back on course. It will also send audible and visual messages if you need to take additional action.

**Included in optional Luxury Pack.
