Based on the acclaimed third-generation Octavia launched earlier this year, the new Octavia vRS model makes its world debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Delivering a combination of sportiness, space and functionality, the new Octavia vRS takes Skoda performance to a new level. And with prices starting from £22,990, it also sets new standards for value.

Equipped with a host of standard features designed to fully exploit the car’s performance potential, the new Octavia vRS is set to continue the UK’s love affair with the vRS badge. With new technologies combining to make the car lighter and more affordable to run, the new model is the most complete vRS package ever offered.

“The new Octavia vRS has a very special place in the heart of everyone at ŠKODA.” Says Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director ŠKODA UK. “It unites our love of motorsport, sharp design and bold engineering, and is one of the most exciting cars we’ve ever made. We’re confident that the new Octavia’s unique mix of space, practicality and performance give it a real edge in an area of the market where we have enjoyed fantastic growth over recent years.
