The heat is on as ŠKODA unleashes new Octavia vRS 245 in the UK

21/06/2017

​It’s the vRS that packs the mightiest punch ever: the new Octavia vRS 245 has just touched down in the UK. Delivering 245PS and 370Nm of torque, the new sporting flagship of the range launches with an equally headline-grabbing price that starts from £27,595.

Milton Keynes 21 June 2017: A key new model in SKODA’s revised 2017 Octavia line-up, the new vRS 245 offers 15PS more than the previous range-topping model, and comes with a raft of additional equipment to deliver the brand’s sportiest drive to date. Available in both hatch and estate forms, the vRS 245 model is also offered with a choice of a six-speed manual or a new seven-speed DSG transmission.

Powered by a modified version of the existing 2.0 TSI four cylinder vRS powerplant, the vRS 245 can sprint from 0-62 in just 6.6 seconds (Estate 6.7 seconds) and has exceptional in-gear flexibility. In fifth gear, for example, the vRS 245 with a manual gearbox sprints from 37 to 62 mph in just 6.4 seconds (Estate: 6.5 seconds) and from 50 to 75 mph in only 6.6 seconds (Estate: 6.8 seconds).

And it’s not just an increase in engine power that marks the Octavia vRS 245 as something special. Thanks to the standard fitment of an electronically regulated VAQ limited-slip differential, drivers can fully exploit the car’s performance - even in challenging conditions. The VAQ limited-slip differential was originally developed for motorsport and works with an electronically regulated multi-plate clutch located between the differential and the powered axle on the right-hand side. When needed, 100 per cent of the power can be directed to one front wheel. When cornering, the differential transfers an increased amount of engine power to the outer front wheel (wheel with the most grip) as required.

In terms of equipment, the vRS 245 builds on the already impressive specification of the standard vRS with a host of additional items. Externally, the vRS 245 is distinguished by striking 19-inch ‘Xtreme’ gloss black alloy wheels, gloss black front grille, door mirror housings and exhaust tailpipes. Inside, the vRS 245’s cabin features heated and electrically adjustable vRS sports seats trimmed in Alcantara and decorative trim panels finished in gloss black. The colour multifunction trip computer, located in the main instrument panel between the speedometer and rev counter, also includes a lap timer as standard.

Other equipment highlights shared with the standard vRS range include Amundsen satellite navigation with eight-inch display and integrated Wi-Fi, full LED headlights with adaptive front light system and LED daytime running lights, LED interior light pack (10 colours) and a Super sport three-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel with vRS logo and paddles for DSG-equipped models.

The Octavia vRS 245 is available to order now, with UK deliveries in July.

​Winter may be approaching, but ŠKODA retailers across the country have launched a range of finance deals to keep the summer holiday spirit going. Thanks to low rate PCP finance, no minimum deposit and up to £2,000 of deposit contributions, ŠKODA's range of award-winning cars are now even more affordable. 
The recent world premiere of the new Kodiaq SUV may signal the start of ŠKODA’s broader SUV campaign, but the ŠKODA Yeti – the brand’s first SUV – is enjoying a rise in popularity. Now in its seventh production year, debuting in 2009, the ŠKODA Yeti has been one of the most successful compact SUVs ever.
ŠKODA’s global deliveries in August increased to 80,700 vehicles. Compared to the same period last year, this represents growth of 14.2% (August 2015: 70,700 vehicles). Thus, the traditional Czech brand has continued its growth trend. The top model ŠKODA Superb and the ŠKODA Rapid in particular contributed to the brand’s success.
20 years ago, on 3 September 1996, former Czech President Vaclav Havel gave the starting signal for the production of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA in the newly opened part of the plant at the company's headquarters. This also marked the beginning of a unique success story: Over the following two decades, the ŠKODA OCTAVIA became a worldwide bestseller and is still the best selling model of the brand from Mladá Boleslav. The popular compact car paved the way for ŠKODA’s success.
​This is how ŠKODA's new large SUV looks inside: Shortly before its world premiere, the Czech automobile manufacturer gives a first glimpse inside the new large SUV. The photos emphasize that ŠKODA has implemented its modern, clear, expressive design language in the cockpit. At the same time, the images highlight

the brand's uncompromising standards in terms of functionality and build quality. ŠKODA is once again setting new standards in interior space: The ŠKODA KODIAQ features the largest boot in its class and is available as a seven-seater.

​Mladá Boleslav, 10 August 2016 – ŠKODA delivered 83,700 vehicles to customers worldwide this July (July 2015: 82,800 vehicles). This corresponds to a growth of 1.0% over the same period last year. The Czech manufacturer made significant gains, particularly in China (up 16.1%) and Russia (up 11.6%). The ŠKODA SUPERB continues to enjoy great popularity, with sales increasing 92.7% over last year.
