Skoda teases new-gen Octavia vRS image

The Czech based automaker Skoda has recently released a first teaser image with the new generation of the Octavia vRS, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

After we have seen the new generation of the Skoda Octavia, in its two body styles, just a few months ago, the model is now being placed into the spotlights once again. But this isn’t your regular Skoda Octavia because it’s named the vRS. The 2014 Skoda Octavia vRS is the top of the line version of the Octavia, which is aimed to those of you who want a family car but with “hot hatch” performance.

The 2014 Skoda Octavia vRS is the third generation of the model and it will be powered by the 2.0 liter TFSI engine, the same one from the new VW Golf GTI. The unit will produce about 220 HP (164 kW) and 350 Nm of torque (258 lb-ft). A more powerful version of the new Octavia vRS might be offered too, with 250 HP (186 kW). The 2014 Skoda Octavia vRS will be officially presented to the public on the 11th of July. Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
