New ŠKODA Octavia vRS 230 hits the tarmac running

Skoda Octavia vRS 230 Review

ŠKODA has built on the success of the standard Octavia to produce the sporty and dynamic Octavia vRS 230. This high performance hatchback features unique styling points and driving technologies to enhance its acceleration and handling.

The streamlined looks of the Octavia are given an athletic makeover with stylised 19-inch alloy wheels and gloss black details creating the vRS’ imposing road presence. The distinctive ŠKODA front end is retained, and its wide grille gets the addition of subtle vRS badging. A sporty rear spoiler completes the transformation from family car to hot hatchback. Inside, the driver and passengers are fully supported in sports seats clad with finely crafted leather and contrast stitching. Meanwhile, the uprated trip computer now benefits from the addition of a lap timer.

The extra power of the vRS 230 means you can surge from 0-60mph in under 6.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155mph. An electronically controlled slip differential gives you added grip in the corners so you can turn at speed with complete confidence. Enjoy the precision and smoothness of the six-speed manual gearbox which allows you to accelerate faster and access the power you need when you demand it. The fastest road-going Octavia ever returns an impressive 45.6mpg, making it the ideal vehicle for those who enjoy frugality alongside performance.
