A few months ago, Skoda unveiled the all-new Octavia RS iV. The first performance plug-in hybrid developed by the Czech manufacturer has a 1.4 liter petrol unit and an electric motor for a total of 245 horsepower and 400 Nm peak of torque.
Now, Skoda unveiled two new engine options for the Octavia RS. We are speaking about a diesel and a petrol variant.
The petrol version of the new Octavia RS uses a 2.0 liter unit which can deliver 245 horsepower and 370 Nm peak of torque. The engine can be matted to a six speed manual transmission or a seven speed DSG. With the automatic gearbox, both body versions can run from not to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds, while the top speed is clocked at 250 km/h.
On the diesel side we have also a 2.0 liter unit which can deliver 200 horsepower and 400 Nm peak of torque. The diesel variant is available only with a seven speed transmission and it can be optionally ordered with an all-wheel drive system. The not to 100 km/h is done in 6.8 seconds with the AWD.
