Get ready for latest Skoda Octavia vRS

February 4, 2020

Skoda has released teaser images of its all-new Octavia vRS iV which will have its world premiere on March 3 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Signature black vRS details emphasise the dynamic design language of the elegantly proportioned Skoda best-seller, with dimensions that have grown slightly over those of its predecessor.

As the first Skoda vRS model to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Octavia vRS iV is unique in the way it combines family-friendly versatility and sports car-like performance with sustainability and efficiency.

Twenty years after the debut of the first Octavia vRS, the new car is all set to open the next chapter of what has become a remarkable success story. The Octavia vRS is extremely popular within the model series: in the core European Skoda markets of Germany, the UK and Switzerland, every fifth Octavia delivered to customers is a vRS model.

Customers appreciate the combination of a generously-sized interior, versatility and sporting performance. Featuring a plug-in hybrid powertrain generating a system output of 180kW (245PS), the latest car boasts superior fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, making it particularly sustainable.

The design sketches reveal the Octavia vRS iV in coupé-style hatch and dynamic estate format. The most eye-catching design elements are a black Skoda grille and a sporty front apron with large air intakes and distinctive black detailing. Large alloy wheels, diffusers at the front and rear and spoilers on the saloon’s tailgate and the rear edge of the estate’s roof underline the dynamic appeal of the model.
