As most of UK resident fear of harsh winter and sometimes hate to drive in the snow, Skoda thought of a solution. It recently introduced the new four-wheel drive version of Octavia vRS in UK.

The Octavia vRS 4x4 marks a further expansion of the vRS range, and is available in both hatch and estate form. The new vRS 4x4 is priced from £27,315 (£28,515 Estate) and brings all-wheel-drive capability to the vRS range for the first time.

Powered by a 2.0 TDI 184PS diesel engine and equipped with a six-speed DSG gearbox as standard, the vRS 4x4 uses best the total torque output of 380 Nm offered between 1,750-3,250rpm.

Designed to maximise grip in all conditions, the four-wheel-drive system constantly monitors traction at each wheel and directs power to whichever axle requires it. And there is also multi-link sports suspension and electronic differential lock XDS+ for dynamic cornering, progressive steering and numerous assistance systems.

In terms of performance, Octavia vRS 4x4 hatch models can sprint from zero to 62mph in 7.6 seconds (Estate 7.7 seconds), which is some 0.3 seconds quicker than the two-wheel-drive model). Despite this, the vRS 4x4 still returns 57.7mpg on the combined cycle (56.5mpg Estate). CO2 output figures are 129g/km for the hatch and 131g/km for the estate.

The vRS 4x4 comes packed with standard equipment, including  Amundsen touchscreen satellite navigation system, 18-inch Gemini anthracite alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, sports suspension and dual-zone climate control with humidity sensor.
