The iconic Skoda Octavia RS is widely regarded both here and overseas as being one of the best vehicles you can buy, if you enjoy a car which can balance the practical needs of daily life with an engaging and rewarding driving experience.
Capable of transporting the family, luggage and probably the dog as well, the Octavia wagon is one of the most cleverly designed vehicles around, offering excellent front and rear leg room for 5 and fantastic luggage space.
Built of the VAG (Volkswagen Audi Group) MQB platform, the Octavia is at the forefront of design and safety offering the latest safety innovations for occupant protection with multiple airbags, Driver fatigue alert, Passenger accident activation system (Crew protect), Headrest safety, EBV, ESC, ASR along with the latest integration of safety technologies around on road handling which utilises ESC and ABS to seamlessly control the car in adverse conditions.
Add to this the RS features which include Bi-Xenon lights with AFS, high performance brakes, sport steering, RS Mode for tuning steering response and audible engine characteristics, beautiful sports interior with carbon fibre highlights, an amazing Columbus infotainment system, flat bottom sports steering wheel with paddle shift all working through a stunning 2.0 turbo charged engine and highly efficient 6 speed DSG transmission capable of exceptional levels of performance while producing great fuel economy.
The balance control and poise of the RS, even when pushed, is near faultless and controllable, even at the limit.
Add to that the passenger comfort, refinement of the ride and equipment levels, all at an economic price, and great cost of ownership (30000km or 24 month service cycles!) and consumption, and frankly, they are near impossible to beat, if at all!
Don't take our word for it though, come and see for yourself and you be the judge.
