New Octavia RS from $55,490 +ORC

Meet the New Octavia RS

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.


The new ŠKODA Octavia has a generous choice of petrol and diesel engines so you can choose the ideal motor for you.

Whichever engine you choose, you will be guaranteed a performance worthy of the vehicle’s aesthetics and a smooth ride courtesy of the Macpherson suspension with torsion stabiliser.

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.

LED face

The new OCTAVIA RS sets pulses racing even when standing still. With sporty styling and equally impressive LED headlamps, the racy intentions of this car are revealed as quickly as the horses rushing under its bonnet.

Tailgate spoiler

The liftback version features a tailgate spoiler, which increases the stability of the vehicle at faster speeds. The OCTAVIA COMBI RS also has a tailgate spoiler that is larger and more boldly shaped than the standard version.​​

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!​


You’ll be easily entertained by the OCTAVIA RS & RS 245. Enjoy a 9.2″ touch screen Columbus infotainment system which features SmartLink^^ smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth® audio and streaming with voice control, USB, AUX and 2x SD Card Slots as standard. Overseas model shown.

^^Smartlink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of i0S and Android.

Wireless charging

No cables, no worries. Now with the Qi Wireless charging in the centre console, you’ll never get caught with a flat smartphone. Available with standard equipment.

Adaptive cruise control

Just when you thought cruise control couldn’t get any smarter. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) + features a radar sensor on the front grille which monitors the vehicle(s) ahead, allowing it to automatically brake an accelerate to a speed and distance set by you. Did we mention it comes standard?

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

Canton sound system

You know what else sounds great? In case the 8-speaker sound system isn’t enough, you can upgrade it to a premium, German, 10-speaker Canton Sound System. Canton adds a digital equaliser, sound level controls and vehicle noise cancellation. The Canton Sound System is included in the optional Tech Pack.

Driving mode selection

As you get to know your OCTAVIA RS & RS 245, it gets to know you, too. Driving Mode Selection** adapts engine torque, accelerator sensitivity, power steering, headlight control (where AFS is fitted), DSG transmission, and air conditioning to your preferences, across four driving modes — Normal, Sport, Eco, and Individual.

**Included in optional Luxury Pack.

Trip computer

If you’re after trip information, the OCTAVIA RS & RS 245 puts it all on display. Enjoy a colour multifunctional display system that provides additional vehicle information including everything from oil temperature to phone, audio, Driver Assist Systems and navigation data.

Dual-zone air-conditioning

When it comes to air conditioning, it’s each to their own. Electronically controlled climatronic air conditioning, standard across the OCTAVIA range, has two zones, so you and your front passenger can each set your own temperature. Plus, the automatic air conditioning system has sensors that monitor and adjust temperature and humidity. Pretty cool, don’t you think?

Front assist with city emergency brake

A car that senses danger ahead? Now that’s clever. Front Assist with City Emergency Brake+ uses a radar sensor to monitor the risks in front of you, alert you of any hazards, and will even brake on its own to help avoid a collision.

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

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.

Multi-collision brake

The last thing we want to happen to you immediately after an accident — is another accident. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps you maintain control of the car if it begins skidding, while Multi-collision Brake activates the braking system to help minimise any further collision.

LED headlights with AFS

It’s good to know what’s around the corner with the LED headlights with AFS (Adaptive Frontlight System). AFS swivels the light beam by up to 15° into turns, anticipating the movement of your car to improve visibility.

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.

Side assist – blind spot detection

Here’s a feature you might not have seen coming. Side Assist (Blind Spot Detection)**+ helps you change lanes safely by letting you know if there are any vehicles in your blind spot. If so, an LED symbol in the side mirror will light up, and start flashing if you indicate in the direction of the vehicle. It also takes corrective action if there is a car in your blind spot.

**Included in optional Luxury Pack.

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

Power In Motion

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.
