We’re pleased to announce that the new Octavia vRS and Scout ranges are now open to order at your local Vindis ŠKODA retailer.
The third-generation Octavia range, in true ŠKODA style, was awarded the maximum 5-star EURO NCAP rating thanks to its range of safety features and assistance systems. The Octavia also scored the maximum points in its protection of 1 ½ year infants making it a particularly safe choice for families.
The vRS range is available as either a Hatch or Estate, each showcasing ŠKODA’s sporty design features including sporty front grille, honeycomb air intakes, a black diffuser at the rear, 18” alloy wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights as standard. A sporty, premium feeling interior brings a leather multi-function steering wheel, sports seats, stainless steel pedals and vRS kick plates. Two exclusive colour options for the vRS range are available; Rallye Green Metallic and Meteor Grey.
Both petrol and diesel engine options are available, with a 230PS, 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine offering a 0-62mph time of 6.7 seconds and a 184PS diesel engine, doing 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds. We will be joined later in the year by a vRS 245 model which, as the name suggests, brings 245PS to the table.
Also available to order is the new Octavia Scout model which offers the perfect blend of comfort and practicality with rugged off-road abilities. The Scout model provides ŠKODA’s Rough-Road Package as standard which provides increased ground clearance, silver-coloured underbody protection and bespoke springs and shock absorbers.
On the exterior, 17” alloy wheels still ensure the Scout model is a stylish car for everyday driving and clever storage solutions on the inside mean you never need to leave valuables on show. The new Octavia models offer increased legroom over the outgoing model so there will be no complaints from the family, no matter how long your journey.
For more information on the new Octavia range, and to book a test drive for yourself, please get in touch with your local Vindis ŠKODA retailer. Our helpful teams will talk you through the models and help decide which is the perfect car for you. We look forward to welcoming you in.
