2017 Skoda Octavia

In Picture: Skoda Octavia Facelift 

Unlike the past two-generations of the Octavia RS (both were available in India), there’s tonnes of visual drama in the current model. The sportier styling with redesigned front and rear bumpers, flashy colours and bigger wheels make sure that it stands out in front of the regular model.

Even on the inside, you get an all-black cabin with Alcantara and leather upholstery with contrasting stitching, flat-bottom steering wheel (also available with the Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo) and more goodies than the stock car.

It is powered by 2.0-litre TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines internationally. But we are likely to get the former, the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol. This engine puts out 230PS of max power and 350Nm of peak torque (the regular Octavia 1.8-litre TSI petrol puts out 180PS and 250Nm). While the previous-gen models were manuals in the country, the new vRS is likely to come only with its 6-speed DSG (dual-clutch automatic). A 6-speed manual is offered internationally though.
