According to Skoda, a new model is on its way and we are actually talking about the Skoda Octavia vRS which will have a starting price of GBP22.990 in the UK. The model will have its world debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and will reveal a list of innovations in terms of engineering, a new and dramatic design and also a lot of new elements that improve the performance of the car. The new technologies are combined to make the car lighter and more affordable to use. According to the carmaker, the new model is actually the most complete vRS package ever offered by Skoda.
The carmaker offers it as a hatchback and estate forms which are inspired by its predecessors. The hatch offers 590 liters of boot space with the rear seat in position while in the same time the estate delivers 610 liters of luggage room. When the rear seat is folded this space increases to 1.580 liters and 1740 liters, respectively. In terms of engine there are two options. The first one is a 2.0-liter TSI petrol capable of generating 220 PS and there is also a more powerful diesel unit which will be offered in the form of a 2.0-liter TDI capable of producing 184 PS. The two units will use a 6-speed manual transmission or a DSG automatic one. The carmaker has engineered a new chassis that features a lowered ride height and advanced multi-link rear suspension design. The new Octavia vRS is now available for order now, and it will be on sale in the UK starting with the 1st of August. This is all we know so far on the matter.
