Months after introducing the exciting New Octavia, Czech automobile manufacturer ŠKODA AUTO India introduces its most exciting product – OCTAVIA RS 230. The OCTAVIA RS 230 will follow ŠKODA’s philosophy of ONE NATION, ONE PRICE and will be available at an Ex-showroom price of Rs 2,462,542/-. The new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 delivers 169 kW (230 PS) from its 2.0 TSI turbocharged petrol engine. The powerful engine and innovative chassis technology including the XDS+ limited-slip differential offer the ultimate driving experience. The OCTAVIA RS 230 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.8 seconds; its top speed is limited to 250 km/h making it the fastest series-production model in the history of ŠKODA in India. As is usual for a ŠKODA, the OCTAVIA RS 230 features a spacious interior and luggage compartment. Numerous ‘Simply Clever’ features are further testimony to the car’s practical talents. The new front end, attractive rear design and new Alcantara sporty interior gives the OCTAVIA RS 230 a distinct and dynamic character and will be available in four exciting sporty colors of Race Blue, Steel Grey, Corrida Red and Candy White.

At the launch of the OCTAVIA RS, Mr. Ashutosh Dixit – Director: Sales, Service & Marketing, ŠKODA AUTO India, said, “The OCTAVIA RS transforms ŠKODA’s century long motorsports legacy into the fastest ever OCTAVIA produced in India. The OCTAVIA RS 230 boasts of a unique combination of a high performance engine, sporty appearance and driving dynamics along with new technologies and connectivity. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 bristles with emotion and dynamism. It is being reintroduced in the market following an overwhelming response from customers and is targeted at ŠKODA loyalists.”

Exterior Design

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 features the new face of the brand with particularly sporty details. The bumper is designed with a bold horizontal line, has broad honeycomb air inlets and contributes to the car’s wide and sculpted impression. The redesigned headlight clusters in a crystalline look feature full-LED technology and the AFS adaptive front light system as standard. The fog lights, tail lights and number plate illumination also feature LED technology as well as a crystalline appearance. The radiator grille and the tailgate both sport the RS logo featuring a gloss-black ‘V’ (for victory). Features such as the spoiler at the rear of the tailgate are further elements of the car’s emotive and dynamic design.

Interior with Alcantara® sports seats

The predominantly black interior of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 impresses not only with its generous dimensions and great clarity, but also with its high-quality material. With their high sides and integrated headrests, the Alcantara® sports seats provide maximum support in fast corners. The front seats bear the RS logo – as do the front door sills. The front seats feature red topstitching, is electrically adjustable, offers lumbar support and has a memory function (driver’s seat) which saves three seat positions.

The multifunction sports steering wheel, with perforated leather and integrated gear-shift paddles, matches the car’s dynamic ambience. The radio and telephone (Bluetooth) can be operated from the steering wheel. A colour Maxi-DOT display forms part of the instrument cluster. The LED ambient lighting bathes the interior in atmospheric light that can be set to one of ten colours.

Sports chassis and mechanical limited slip

Compared to the Octavia models in India, the sports chassis lowers the body of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 by 15 mm. The standard Hawk Anthracite alloy wheels are 17 inches in diameter. The DSG with Sport mode, as well as the electronically regulated XDS+ limited-slip differential are also part of the standard equipment. At corners, by gently braking the inner wheels, the system transmits more torque to the outer wheels, resulting in better cornering. The XDS+ gets activated once the lateral acceleration reaches 0.15 g. The dynamic character of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS 230 is additionally highlighted by the car’s progressive steering.  The variable ratio steering enables RS drivers to have sportier control of the car during hi-speed driving as well as comfort control when parking.
