Skoda Octavia vRS 245 UK pricing and specification announced

Skoda has revealed the most powerful Octavia vRS yet and it’ll cost from £27,595.

The Czech manufacturer’s flagship model has seen its 2.0-litre petrol engine tuned to make 242bhp and 370Nm of torque. The 0-60mph time is 0.2 seconds faster at 6.4 seconds, with the electro-mechanical front differential helping traction under acceleration.

There’s a six-speed manual as standard as well as an optional seven-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox. The latter shifts incredibly quickly but isn’t very responsive at low speeds, so acceleration times are identical between the two options.

Buyers can opt for a hatchback or estate version of the vRS 245 – those who need the extra practicality need not worry because the estate handles just as well as the hatchback.

The 245 models get improved specification with unique 19-inch gloss black alloy wheels, a laptimer and heated and electrically adjustable vRS sports seats trimmed in Alcantara all available as standard.

There’s also an eight-inch integrated touchscreen with satellite navigation, full LED headlights and LED daytime running lights, plus a three-spoke multi-function sports wheel all available as standard across the vRS range.

The Skoda Octavia vRS 245 starts from £27,595 for the hatchback and is available to order now.
