SKODA’S LEANER RS LINE-UP

The broom has been put through the local line-up of Skoda’s Octavia RS models. Gone are the lower output jobs, manuals and the diesel. The RS range is now condensed to four variants: the choice is either the Octavia RS or RS245, in sedan or wagon, both running a 180kW/370Nm turbo four and seven-speed dual-clutch. The more expensive RS245 gains adaptive dampers, keyless entry and start, and a suite of additional comfort and convenience features over its more affordable sibling.
