Skoda launched the Octavia RS 245 in India at the Auto Expo 2020. The bookings were open for this car on 1st March 2020 but the car reached the dealerships a few days back only. The latest news is from the company’s stockyard. We spotted a whole batch of the Octavia RS 245 which revealed the new colour schemes and shades. The most awaited Rally Green colour is also here in the pictures.
Besides the Rally Green, the Skoda Octavia RS 245 comes in 4 more colour shades. These are Race Blue, Corrida Red, Candy White and Black Magic. The colour schemes make the car look even sportier and young. This version of the Octavia is the most powerful version ever born! This one is a CBU unit and comes at a price point of about Rs. 36 lakhs. It is CBU, therefore, the price range is also high. If we compare this to its previous version- the Octavia RS 230, the price has gone up by almost Rs. 12 Lakhs!
The Rally Green shade of the RS 245 may seem loud to many but there is a special place for the green in Skoda’s history. So if you notice a guy driving this colour shade, either he has got massive respect for the shade or simply wants to get noticed!
The Skoda Octavia RS 245 comes with a gloss black RS grille, boot lid spoiler, 18-inch sporty wheels and LED headlights and tail lights. On the inside, the virtual cockpit instrument cluster takes the car to another level! Under the hood is a 2.0-litre BS6 compliant 4 cylinder engine that churns 242hp and 370 Nm of torque. This one is coupled with a 7-speed DSG that drives the front wheels via an electronic XDS+ limited-slip differential (VAQ). The estimated time for a 0-100 sprint is only 6.6 seconds! This one is really power-packed!
