It’s one of our favourite mid-size offerings and now an updated version of the sporty Skoda Octavia RS is about to land in Australia dealerships.
The 2018 Skoda Octavia RS welcomes some minor cosmetic changes, extra standard features and some tweaks under the skin too.
The big change though is a new high-output version featuring a retuned version of the Octavia’s 2.0 litre turbo-petrol engine.
As standard the MY2018 gets the otherwise-optional Black Pack, along with a 9.2-inch touch-screen interface, blind-spot warning, and adaptive chassis control suspension. There’s also an optional Tech Pack that adds multiple SD card slots, full LED headlights, and a premium sound system.
Going further, the optional Luxury Pack adds leather and Alcantara upholstery, power front seats, heated front and rear seats, lane assist, auto folding side mirrors, and Passenger Protect Assist with two additional airbags.
