As the company will commence series production of the new-gen Octavia from July 2020, the Skoda Octavia RS 245 coming to India is believed to possibly be part of the last batch of cars to be built on the current-generation model. In fact, we even get a glimpse of the split LED headlamps, seen on the current-gen cars, in addition to the chrome exhausts, glossy black butterfly grill with the vRS badging. Other visual elements will remain identical to the Octavia RS sold in India like the sporty front bumper with a wide mesh grille, sporty alloy wheels, black exterior and interior styling among others.

Under the hood, the Skoda Octavia RS 245 is powered by the same 2.0-litre TSI engine that powered the India-spec model, however, it’s tuned to churn out 245 horsepower, which is around 242 bhp and develops 370 Nm of torque. Compared to the previous version, the upcoming model offers an addition 15 bhp and 50 Nm peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic unit, which is paired with a VAQ limited-slip differential to ensure effective power delivery.
However, as this Octavia RS will be brought to India as a full import, it will also be more expensive. Expect prices for the Skoda Octavia RS to be around the Rs 36 lakh mark.
