Your Guide to the Skoda Octavia RS Wagon

Skoda Octavia RS 230 exterior

The Skoda Octavia 2019 range is a popular component of the Skoda line up. This makes them a great option if you’re looking for a practical family wagon. However, you can still enjoy a little sporty excitement with the Skoda Octavia RS Wagon. This fantastic model offers character, practicality, style, and fantastic functionality. So, here we’ll explore this model in more detail to help you determine if it is the right option for you.

The Engine

One of the most special features of the Skoda Octavia RS Wagon is actually hidden from view. Inside the engine bay, the engine has been designed to offer superb power and torque without compromising on fuel efficiency. The petrol option provides 162 kW of power that can go zero to 100 kilometres per hour in just 6.8 seconds, yet has a thrifty consumption of only 6.2 litres per 100 kilometres. 

The diesel unit does have less power at 135 kW, but it provides an impressive 380 Nm torque and an even more frugal 5.3 litres per 100 kilometre fuel consumption rate. 

Safety

In a family wagon, safety must be a priority, and the entire Skoda Octavia range delivers. The RS Wagon features a strong, smart body design with incorporated features such as strengthened materials around all door frames to prevent damage on impact. There is also an advanced multi collision brake system that kicks in to brake the wheels if a side impact deploys an airbag. When one of the nine airbags deploys, the hazard lights are automatically activated, and the brakes will keep the vehicle in the correct lane to prevent a secondary accident. 

All of these features have combined to ensure that the Skoda Octavia retains its five star ANCAP safety rating, so you can have complete peace of mind when your family is with you on the open road. 

Inside the Cabin

The RS Wagon is a versatile vehicle that should appeal to families where drivers want a balance of performance and practicality. This is reflected in the interior, which is well put together using quality materials. While the front seats are not actually racing buckets, they will keep you well planted in corners without needing gymnastic abilities to get in and out. There is also lots of room in the back for children or adults, so there should be no squabbles on longer journeys. 

There is also a massive boot capacity to provide plenty of space for every day gear and holiday items. So, whether you want to take a family road trip or need to tackle the school run with all the acutrements of after school activities, you’ll have plenty of room.
