Skoda launched the all-new Octavia RS in Singapore today, with prices set to start from S$199,900 including COE. The new Octavia RS has been given a refresh both inside and out with an updated design and added assistance systems, comfort and connectivity features. 

Skoda has retained the 2.0 TSI and 7-speed DSG engine and gearbox combo in the Octavia RS that still produces 245PS and 370Nm of torque, but now with an added focus on efficiency. This means the Octavia RS will go from 0-100km/h in just 6.7s and on to a top speed of 250km/h. 

Owners will also get a new electronic limited-slip differential as standard for added traction and increased driving dynamics. The Octavia RS also receives the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system with 15 levels of adjustment found in many other performance offerings from the Volkswagen-Audi Group. In addition to the refreshed powertrain, the Octavia RS also has progressive steering as standard.

The Octavia RS has also received an update to its suite of assistance and safety features as standard. These include Front Assist with integrated City Emergency Brake, Lane Assist, Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert, Driver Alert System, Exit Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

On the exterior, the Octavia RS has been redesigned to create an exceptionally aerodynamic body with a drag coefficient of just 0.24. This also results in lower emissions and fuel consumption. They've achieved this through aerodynamically optimised bodywork such as air curtains in the front bumper, aeroflaps, a rear diffuser, and the rear spoiler. The Octavia RS comes with 19" alloy rims and red RS brake callipers as standard as well.

The Octavia RS also has full LED headlights front and rear with dynamic turn signals and a Coming/Leaving Home animation as standard. There are also RS-specific front and rear aprons and multiple pieces of black trim to give an added look of sportiness. The Octavia RS comes with five paint options including the new Mamba Green.

The front sports seats are also upholstered in Alcantara as standard. The Octavia also gets 30-colour ambient lighting as standard. You also get the 10.25" Virtual Cockpit with an additional Sport display layout and an RS-specific animated welcome logo as standard as well. Infotainment is taken care of through the centre 10" display.
