Available at Birchwood ŠKODA in Eastbourne

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA vRS comes in a wide range of trim levels, ensuring that this practical and well-equipped family car is a desirable proposition for all types of drivers. Sportily-inclined motorists will certainly enjoy what the vRS has to offer, thanks to its noteworthy levels of pace and power, not to mention its abundance of style.


The vRS certainly looks the part, with, for example, a classy front fascia that boasts a gloss-black radiator grille. The vehicle’s flanks are fitted with gloss-black 19-inch alloy wheels, which are further enhanced by eye-catching red brake callipers. At the rear of the car is a striking sports exhaust, which also possesses a gloss-black finish. The OCTAVIA vRS is available in a range of dazzling colours, including grade-exclusive paint finishes such as Sprint Yellow and Meteor Grey.

​Comfort and technology

Inside the vehicle, front-row travellers are treated to sculpted sports seats, just two stand-out features in a cabin that is upholstered in soft-to-the-touch Alcantara and leather. In addition to adjustable seating, the driver further benefits from a heated three-spoke steering wheel, which also facilitates control over the vehicle’s range of infotainment features. These include an eight-speaker sound system – with FM/AM tuner and DAB digital radio – and an Amundsen satellite navigation set-up, each accessible via an eight-inch touchscreen.

Performance, engines, economy and efficiency

The OCTAVIA​ vRS is propelled by a 2.0-litre diesel or petrol engine, with respective power outputs of 181bhp and 227bhp. This four-cylinder unit is paired with a six-speed (manual or sequential automatic) gearbox and can achieve 0-60mph in as little as 6.8 seconds (petrol-fuelled variants).  Despite the vRS’ potency, it is still capable of returning up to 62.8mpg and producing emissions as low as 119g/km (diesel-powered models).
