ith its bestseller, the carmaker continues in its successful tradition of cars for the lovers of more dynamic driving or active lifestyle fans. The top models of the OCTAVIA series offer an even higher level of safety and comfort, new assistance systems, and modern connectivity elements. “The fourth generation of the OCTAVIA model is more versatile, offers more digital technology, and is more environmentally friendly than ever before”, emphasises the car’s qualities Christian Strube, Board Member for Technical Development.

The carmaker has previously introduced its sports version of the OCTAVIA model with its RS iV plug-in hybrid drive. It is now followed by the RS variants with the most powerful new generation petrol and diesel engines, which are both dynamic and economical (you might have read about them in ŠKODA Mobil 11–12/2020). Our customers may choose the 2.0 TDI EVO 147 kW engine with its front-wheel or four-wheel drive. This version features its new electronically controlled sixth generation disc clutch. Its 4 × 4 drive control electronics respond in milliseconds to any changing road situation, and thus support dynamic cornering. The 2.0 TSI EVO unit offers its 180 kW output and front-wheel drive. The electronically controlled axle lock on the VAQ front axle ensures the petrol version’s improved driving characteristics and traction. The RS model’s standard chassis is lowered by 15 mm. However, our customers may order the DCC adaptive chassis, which automatically adjusts its damping characteristics and allows for a highly sports ride in the Sport mode. The supplied progressive steering also contributes to the greater dynamics of the car's steering.

The car with its off-road characteristics, delivered exclusively in its station wagon variant, features its 15 mm higher ground clearance, a package for bad roads, and all-wheel drive. For the first time, it is also available in its version with the most powerful 2.0 TDI EVO diesel engine, with which it can easily pull a two-ton trailer with brakes. The new sixth-generation electronically controlled disc clutch also contributes to low fuel consumption on long adventurous journeys, and the integrated control unit can detect whether the all-wheel drive is currently needed, depending on the driver’s driving style. For off-road drives, the driving stability systems settings can be adjusted by switching on the Off-road function. It also changes the course of the accelerator pedal reaction, and the DSG automatic transmission shifts at greater speeds. The model’s robust appearance is provided by its chassis protection and other silver elements. Body damage is also prevented by the black plastic edges of the fenders, sills, and door lower parts. The standard trim also includes the full LED headlights. The special look of the car’s interior is brought by a mould with its wooden decor or, upon request, in its silver design. The chrome elements on the centre console, instrument panel, and doors or pedals with their aluminium look are impressive as well.
