The latest version of the Octavia vRS will be premiered at the Geneva Motor show in March 2017. The new model has 245ps, 15ps more than the previous vRS 230. In fifth gear with a manual gearbox the vRS can accelerate from 37 to 62 mph in just 6.4 seconds (estate 6.5 seconds) and 50 to 75 mph takes only 6.6 seconds (estate 6.8 seconds). For the first time the vRS is available with a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission, the vRS 245 can also be ordered with a six-speed manual gearbox
The 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine makes 370 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 4,300 rpm, making it particularly flexible. The Octavia RS 245 has sports suspension and is 14 mm lower than the standard Octavia. Its rear track is 38 mm wider than that of its predecessor and 19-inch gloss-black alloy wheels come as standard.
