The New Octavia vRS Facelift​ now available to order

The beautifully created Octavia vRS gets a new facelift just weeks after the new Octavia received new infotainment and connectivity systems, the New vRS is now available to order.

The vRS is available as a hatchback and an estate. The latest vRS has two four-cylinder engines to choose from:

  • 2.0 TDI diesel engine has the same 184PS output as the outgoing model
  • The performance of the 2.0 TSI petrol engine has increased to 230PS, making it the fastest and most powerful Octavia to date.

The newly designed front section features four full-LED headlights, with adaptive front-lighting system (AFS), and LED side-mounted headlights housed in the bumper. At the back, the car features a LED-technology license plate illumination and trademark C-shaped tail lights.

Both the hatchback and estate models include sports seats available in leather and fabric or Alcantara. The multi-function sports steering wheel has a perforated leather crown and shift paddles on cars with direct shift gearbox (DSG).

The estate versions come with an LED removable lamp and both versions with an umbrella under the driver seat.

The facelift also comes with new driver assistant technology. The new systems include blind spot detection, which warns the driver of vehicles in the blind spot, trailer assist which manoeuvres the car when reversing with a trailer at low speeds and rear traffic alert, which monitors rear and side traffic when parking.
