Not a hot hatch, however, always popular, the Skoda Octavia RS sculpted a great for itself by mixing functionality and efficiency in a relatively budget-friendly plan. And now there’s a new one coming out, most likely set to be exposed towards completion of 2020.
2021 Skoda Octavia RS Spy Shots
Our spies have caught the first images of the new Octavia RS, which is a 4th generation model. Though it’s a wagon, we still anticipate the liftback “sedan” to be used. It looks slightly various from the present variation, though that’s to be expected. The front end features the most changes, as a large grille sits lower in the bumper and is flanked by narrow headlights. The hood appears to have a clamshell design, and the nose (front overhang) is longer.
Like most wagons these days, the new Octavia tries to look more elegant by sloping the roofing system and extending the taillights over the trunk opening. But the Octavia 4 does that to a lower degree and is, therefore, less interesting to look at than something like a Proceed GT and even the Focus ST. The Octavia RS likewise doesn’t have in-your-face air intakes or fender flairs.
2021 Skoda Octavia RS Engine
Engine-wise, absolutely nothing has been leaked up until now. However, we have several theories. Either Skoda will push the advancement of its 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TSI a bit further, or it will decrease the downsizing and hybrid routes. In any case, a lot is riding on this, as Octavia is their most popular model, and in many markets, the RS is the most popular trim level.
Because the exhaust pipeline appears to be phony on the right of the car, we think this model may be a diesel, much like the Kodiaq RS, though with a bit less power. It’s also front-wheel-drive, though just a small number of the present Octavia RSs are sold with AWD.
