2013 Skoda Octavia RS Surfaces On Consumer Website

TMR Team | Dec 14, 2012

The flagship model in Skoda's new 2013 Octavia range, the turbocharged RS model, has been given an unscheduled unveiling.

The images shown here were caught by an eagle-eyed fan on Skoda's own website, appearing on the configuration page for the new Octavia revealed this week.

Details for the new RS were not revealed, although it is expected that power will be supplied by the 162kW 2.0 litre turbo engine that drives Volkswagen's new 2013 GTI hatch.

In its current form, the Octavia RS is available in petrol and diesel form. The petrol model offers 147kW and 280Nm, while the diesel outputs a lighter 125kW and a heftier 350Nm of torque.

In the regular 2013 Octavia, power will be provided by a range of petrol and diesel options, including an 89kW 1.4 litre petrol, a 131kW 1.8 litre petrol, and an 81kW 1.6 diesel.

As expected, the new RS gets a hotted-up styling kit, including a new front bumper with larger intakes and LED light strips, along with larger alloy wheels.

There is also a tweaked skirting design along the sides, a boot spoiler and a new rear bumper with a diffuser-styled bottom panel flanked by a pair of wide exhaust tips.

With these images now revealed, watch for more details on the Octavia RS to appear in the near future.

      Obviously it shares Audi DNA (in fact, it shares actual parts with its Audi stablemates) - Skoda is part of VWAG after all.

    Nice presence and good to see the evolution of the design rather than revolution, better for current owners and resale prospects. Specs read very well and Skoda is deserving of greater market presence in Australia. Just need to review servicing in Australia and align new VW capped offer with Skoda as well please?
