In the morning today, we brought you information on Skoda’s highly anticipated model for the enthusiasts, the RS. Now we have some more information.
The RS is already available at dealers for booking, however the pricing and the actual launch will only take place later in the month with deliveries starting next month only. As of now, a total of 4 colours will be on offer, Candy White, Corrida Red, Steel Grey and Race Blue.
The RS will only be offered in petrol guise, which is the 2.0 liter TSI engine which is on offer in the Audi TT as well. It comes in two states of tune, a 230 PS and a 245 PS. It will be the 230 PS which will make it to the Indian market. The car will be offered with a 6-speed DSG, as spotted in the spy shots.
The RS will have the same kit that is on offer on the top of the line Octavia. Expect the same 9.2″ touch screen system with Android Auto, Apple Car play and Mirrorlink, the Auto park, the ambient lighting and sun roof. The car will most likely be getting 17″ rims as opposed to the 18″ ones that are on offer in the international market.
In addition to that, Skoda will be launching a new model of the normal Octavia, the L&K. The MK3 Octavia never had the L&K trim and for the first time, the trim line is being launched on the new model. It will be offered in two colour options, white and Quartz grey and it will be available from October 2017.
Pricing details of the RS will only be known at the end of the month when the official launch takes place while that of the L&K variant will come later. It is rumored that it will cost Rs 30,000 more than the existing Style Plus version.
