Goes on sale in a short while

The 2013 Skoda Octavia RS Liftback and Combi were spotted in a parking lot at a shopping center in Czech Republic.

Both of them can be had with a Golf VII GTI-sourced 2.0-liter TSI engine developing 220 HP (162 kW) or a Golf VII GTD-sourced 2.0-liter TDI producing 184 HP (135 kW). As standard, these engines are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox but a six-speed DSG can be had at an additional cost.

The manual TSI liftback hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 154 mph (248 km/h), while the manual TDI liftback needs 8.1 seconds to complete the sprint and will keep on going until reaching 144 mph (232 km/h).

Aside from the Golf VII GTI/GTD engine transplant, both Octavia RS models come with a lowered ride height (12mm liftback / 13mm combi), 17-inch alloys (up to 19-inch available), sports suspension, electronic differential lock built into the electronic stability control system, along with a more aggressive body kit. Inside they have a new instrument panel, leather-covered sports steering wheel, stainless steel sill plates and pedals, sports seats, black trim and "RS" badging.

Note: The light grey car with roof rails is a standard Skoda Octavia Combi, while the black one (also with roof rails) is the 2013 Skoda Superb Combi facelift.

It's always funny when you hear some guy swear that a Skoda was faster than his BMW and the highway.

Still dont like the way they make the logo appear on the grille... But cant wait to testdrive it (despite some regression on the interior quality compared to previous generations)
