The Škoda Octavia vRS gets the most powerful diesel engine to date, in the form of a 2.0-liter TDI unit with 200 hp.
So, the diesel joins the petrol and hybrid versions and the fifteen horsepower is more powerful than its predecessor. Although it has less power than the 2.0 TSI model (245 hp), its maximum torque makes up for that – 400 Nm versus 370.
When it comes to intelligent engineering, the aluminum block helps keep the mass at the desired level, and the rings of low-friction pistons help to “spin” things more efficiently. The liquid-cooled turbocharger provides strong performance, while the seven-speed DSG accelerates gear changes.
Power is sent to all four points via a multi-plate coupling. This improved construction is almost a kilogram lighter compared to previous models, and it also uses low friction oil, reduced bearing preload and improved internal components, to make power delivery as smooth and efficient as possible.
All this means that the control electronics react now faster than ever before, maintaining grip at the desired level. Skoda even uses differentials to deliver more power to the outer wheels when cornering.
Visually, it will not be easy to distinguish the diesel vRS from the petrol or hybrid version. All three models get a distinctive radiator grille, lower diffuser and air curtains over the fog lights.
There is also a polished black trim around the windows, mirror housings and roof racks, along with a rear diffuser and spoiler. Chrome exhaust tailpipes and vRS markings also inform the environment that this is a performance vehicle.
The price is expected to start at around 35,000 euros.
