SKODA’s new OctaviavRS 4x4 is set to tackle the winter roads in style, having just stormed into dealerships across the UK.
The four-wheel drive Octavia is a game-changer for the vRS range, featuring a 2.0 TDI 184PS diesel engine, six-speed DSG gearbox and confident four-wheel-drive system, all for £27,315 (or £28,515 for the Estate version).
Racing from zero to 62mph in 7.6 seconds, the Octavia vRS 4x4 packs a serious punch, yet still remains economical to drive, returning 57.7mpg on the combined cycle. Fuel emissions also remain low, with CO2 output at 129g/km.
Standard equipment in the vRS 4x4 offers equally good value, including an Amundsen touchscreen satellite navigation system, 18-inch Gemini anthracite alloy wheels. Bi-xenon headlights, sport suspension and dual-zone climate control with humidity sensor.
With sales of Octavia vRS models currently standing at 30,000 in the UK since 2001, the new 4x4 will be released to an eager audience, hoping to re-create the same popularity with buyers who prioritise performance, value and practicality.
