The new front section with a wider radiator grille, which has been extended with additional headlamps featuring a crystalline look, and the even wider air intakes with honeycomb structure in the redesigned bumpers are masculine and dynamic. The four full-LED headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), as well as the LED side-mounted headlights integrated into the bumpershape the new front end. At the rear, the saloon’s spoiler and the estate’s roof spoiler set independent accents.
The rear is dominated by a powerful black diffuserelement and broad red reflector lamp above. These elements are unmistakable characteristics of the upgraded ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS. In addition, the model now features LED-technology license plate illumination and taillights in the classic C-design as standard.
The 15 mm lower sports suspension and the rear track, 30 mm wider than the predecessor, as well as the red brake callipers underline the dynamic character of the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS. 17-inch wheels are available as standard, while 18- or 19-inch wheels are available as an option. On request, 19-inch light-alloy wheels are available in silver.
Progressive steering, Performance Mode Selectwith Performance Sound Generator (option), the stability program ESC with electronic cross barrier XDS+ and Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) add to the intensive driving pleasure of the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS. DCC allows the driver to choose between Comfort, Normal or Sport modes.
