UK exclusive: ŠKODA Octavia vRS Challenge

05.02.2019

Building on one of the UK’s most popular, award-winning family cars, ŠKODA have added a very special trim to the Octavia line-up that’s exclusive for the UK.

The vRS Challenge trim is available in both Hatch and Estate models and adds additional features worth over £4,500.

Completing the sporty look, and dark theme to the vehicle, are 19” Xtreme black alloy wheels, black vRS badging and a sports exhaust with a black trim. Inside, popular Alcantara adorns the seats, which despite their sporty look remain ultra-comfortable being electronically-adjustable and heated for both driver and front passenger. Not forgetting the cars racing roots, a lap timer is available for when you’re really looking to push the vehicle to the limits.

The Octavia vRS Challenge shares equipment with the standard vRS range including satellite navigation, an 8” touchscreen, integrated Wi-Fi, LED headlights with adaptive front light system, LED interior light pack that bathes the cabin in a choice of ten colours, and a sports, leather multifunction steering wheel.

Featuring ŠKODA’s 245PS, 2.0 litre petrol engine with 370Nm of torque, and a 0-62mph time of just 6.6 seconds, you can also opt for a manual or automatic gearbox. Dynamic Chassis Control provides the perfect driving experience, whilst an electronically regulated, VAQ limited-slip differential (which was originally developed for motorsport) allows extra control of the vehicle, providing power, and ultimately increased grip, where it is needed the most.

The Octavia vRS Challenge is open for order at your local Vindis ŠKODA retailer, so get in touch for more information today.
