Skoda to launch Octavia RS in India on August 30
  • The performance trim of the 2017 Skoda Octavia is also expected to come with a few crucial technology upgrades.

Skoda has announced the launch date for the Octavia RS in India. The performance variant of the 2017 Skoda Octavia will be introduced in India for the first time ever, and makes for a significant entrant in the Indian auto market. The Octavia RS is expected to come with a 227bhp petrol engine, coupled with 6-speed automatic and manual transmission variants. The D-segment sedan was always meant as a luxury prospect in India, aimed at professionals looking for a mid-range luxury sedan. With the RS, the Octavia will not only join India's limited portfolio of performance cars, but also become one of the least expensive ones in its class.


Internationally, the Skoda Octavia RS includes intelligent technology like Lane Assistance, Blind Spot Monitoring, Front and Rear Proximity Assist, and handsfree parking. At least some of these features are now expected to make it to the Octavia RS in India, thereby making it one of the smartest cars in its segment. It also gets Skoda's top-of-the-line, 9.2-inch Columbus infotainment system with integrated HDD for local media storage, among the standard features. It also gets a 10-colour interior ambient lighting scheme, double-stitched black and red leather upholstery, and a lot more.

The Skoda Octavia RS is expected to be priced well within Rs. 30 lac when it launches in India later this week. Stay tuned, as we bring you live details and updates on the Skoda Octavia RS, on August 30.
