The first official video with the brand new Octavia RS and Octavia Combi RS has been recently released by the Czech based automaker Skoda.
The new generation of the Skoda Octavia RS, along with the Octavia Combi RS, is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a video, which is showing the model in action, on a track. The 2014 Skoda Octavia RS seems to handle pretty well but if you we’re hoping to hear how that 2.0 TSI sounds under the hood of the model, you’re in for a big surprise, because Skoda prefers to let us listen to music than to other car-made sounds.
The 2014 Skoda Octavia RS is powered by a 2.0 liter TSI engine, borrowed from the Golf 7 GTI, which is producing a total output of 220 HP (162 kW). The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in the model takes 6.8 seconds and top speed stands at 248 km/h (154 mph). The model is also getting a 2.0 liter TDI, used on the new Golf GTD, which is generating 184 HP (135 kW), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).
