The press service of the Czech automaker introduced the “charged” liftback Skoda Octavia RS 2021 model year, which is equipped with a TSI gasoline engine and diesel TDI.

Exactly four months after the launch of the Octavia RS iV hybrid, Skoda introduces high-performance versions with more traditional engines. Naturally, the gasoline and diesel versions of the model look almost the same as the electrified Octavia RS iV, except that their bodies no longer have the “iV” badge and plugs for the charging port on the front wing.

The regular Octavia RS can be equipped with a 2.0-liter TSI engine with 245 horsepower 370 Nm). Available exclusively with front-wheel drive, the gasoline version of the model can work with a six-speed manual gearbox and an optional seven-speed DSG “robot”. To accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, this version of the new product will spend 6.7 seconds, and the “maximum speed” will be 250 km / h.

The Octavia RS 2021 will also be available with a 200hp 2.0 TDI diesel engine. (400 Nm), making it the most powerful diesel engine for the new generation Octavia.

The standard equipment includes a drive to the front axle, but an all-wheel drive system is available for extra money, which allows you to accelerate to the first “hundred” in 6.8 seconds and develop a top speed of 243 km / h. Keep in mind that you cannot get a diesel version of the model with “mechanics”, since Skoda will sell the Octavia RS TDI exclusively with DSG.

All versions of the Octavia RS come with progressive steering and sports suspension, which boasts a multi-link rear suspension design. For an additional fee, an electronically adaptable suspension (Dynamic Chassis Control) will be available. In the case of the TSI, the limited slip differential is supplied with a wet multi-plate clutch.

The most expensive versions of the Octavia RS are equipped with a digital instrument cluster and a large-screen infotainment system. In addition, they also get a standard central airbag (first for Skoda), special 18- and 19-inch wheels, exclusive LED fog lights and black body accents.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the new Skoda Octavia received a bi-fuel version. The Czech automaker shared the characteristics of the most economical version of the new “Octavia” – the Octavia G-Tec bit-fuel.
