New Car: 2018 Skoda Octavia RS wagon review Our Skoda Octavia RS test car was thus equipped. Including other options – metallic paint and auto tailgate (both a reasonable $500) plus 19-inch Xtreme anthracite alloy wheels (an equally reasonable $700 to replace the standard 18-inch Alaris wheels) – you’re looking at a car in excess of $50,000 drive-away. For perspective, a GTI DSG – while smaller in size – is similar money and is equipped with the Adaptive Chassis Control as standard. Our experience is that it’s a feature worth having. With our test car thus equipped, the RS is still a bit clumsier around town than a GTI in the way it deals with bigger surface irregularities, though the suspension reduces the firmness to make it entirely liveable on a daily basis. In Sport, the damping is terrific. It ensures the Octavia RS remains controlled vertically across high-speed dips, and laterally through corners. Composure isn’t ruffled by bumpy bitumen, either. The wagon certainly isn’t short on welly to put to the ground, and it sounds great doing so. Press the vRS button on the console, and in addition to notifying the car you want sportier responses, the familiar 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo features an artificially enhanced note via a sound generator. Sounding grumbly and gravelly on a light and medium throttle as you push through the engine’s chunky mid-range, it morphs into an urgent snarl as you head for redline. Plaudits to the seven-speed DSG for holding revs past the redline, and obeying all driver commands, when using the paddle-shifters that are small, but move with the steering wheel to be always perfectly positioned. The boot is large and clever. A double-side (rubber/carpet) mat covers the floor, there’s a multitude of nets, hooks and tie-downs, and the boot light is a removable LED mini-torch. Convenient release levers lower the split-fold rear seats, though a step means the floor isn’t completely flat. A temporary spare wheel sits under the floor. Yet, especially with this wagon variant that delivers excellent pace, practicality and understated (if slightly polarising) design for its price, it’s easy to understand why the RS is the hero model in Skoda showrooms.

Sinead McCann reviews the Skoda Octavia RS 245 for CarsIreland.ie. The Skoda Octavia is a fine example of a spacious, practical, reliable family car, but it's not often described as exciting. Except when you stick on RS badge on it that is.

A quick launch control start in the FWD Octavai RS230 - as you can see, the car need a LSD diff at front - the 245 RS is supposedly a lot better.
