Skoda is stoking anticipation of the all-new fourth-generation Octavia RS. The Czech manufacturer has released three official exterior design sketches showing the sporty range-topper for the new 2021 Octavia, which will have its world premiere on 3 March at the Geneva Motor Show.
Signature black RS details emphasise the sporting potential of the elegantly proportioned Skoda best-seller, whose dimensions have grown slightly over those of its predecessor. As the first Skoda RS model to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Octavia RS iV promises family-friendly versatility and sports car-like performance with sustainability and efficiency.
With every fifth Octavia delivered to in Europe being an RS model, the performance flagship is one of Skoda’s most important models. The plug-in hybrid powertrain generates a total output of 180 kW (245 PS), ensuring continued driving engagement.
The design sketches reveal the Octavia RS iV in sedan and wagon format. The most eye-catching design elements are a black Skoda grille and a sporty front apron with large air intakes and distinctive black detailing. Large alloy wheels, diffusers at the front and rear and spoilers on the saloon’s tailgate and the rear edge of the Wagon’s roof underline the dynamic appeal of the Octavia RS iV.
