The exterior mirror housings and the trapezoid tailpipes are also black. The radiator grille and the tailgate both sport the vRS logo featuring a gloss-black ‘V’. Features such as the spoiler at the back of the hatchback or roof spoiler on the Estate are further attributes of the car’s emotive and sporty design.The ŠKODA OCTAVIA vRS 245 can also be recognised as a high-performance sportster acoustically thanks to the husky sound of its exhaust system.
The Octavia vRS 245 also gets a new 9.2-inch infotainment display with navigation and an optional LTE module. One can also use the Skoda Connect App to connect their smartphones to the car. There is also an inductive charger for smartphones.
Of course, we don’t see the Octavia vRS 245 coming to India but we do know that the updated Skoda Octavia vRS will come to India in the middle of this year.
