The premium sedan offering from the Czech automaker, the Skoda Octavia has been doing really well in terms of sales numbers for the company - owning to its impressive performance, enviable list of features and extensive engine options. Now however, the Czech automaker is planning to bring its high performance Octavia vRS model on to the Indian shores. This new Octavia vRS, which is now in its third generation was officially presented at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and was finally, launched in the international market at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Its commercial debut in India though, is expected to get underway before the end of 2014.

Design-wise, the Octavia vRS looks similar to its stock sibling, except for a number of sporty updates to bring out the differentiating factors. For instance the new Octavia vRS gets a new bodykit, bold vRS badging at the back, honeycomb-shaped air intakes on the re-designed front grille, bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, a black diffuser at the back, chrome plated exhaust tips, a rear spoiler and red painted brake callipers.

On the inside, the Octavia vRS has been decked with sporty front seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and sill plates and leather wraps on the handbrake and the gear knob. The infotainment system and also the navigation system have been updated.

Skoda Octavia vRS Expected Engine & Transmission

The Skoda Octavia vRS will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. Powering the petrol variant is a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit that is rated at 217PS of max power, while the diesel variant will be served by a 2.0-litre TDI engine that is rated at 182PS. Both engines could be mated to either a 6-Speed manual gearbox or a 6-Speed dual-clutch transmission with optional paddle shifters. The petrol variant reportedly, achieves the 0 to 100 kmph mark in 6.8 seconds, while the diesel variant is said to achieve the same feat in 8.2 seconds.
