The Skoda Octavia RS is a great car built on a study platform of the main Octavia chassis. The VRS edition has a faster engine than standard and has been lowered to look more sporty and appealing, especially to the younger driver and also making th Skod brand more appealing to the younger generation.
It is very spacious and can allow for 4 people sitting comfortably and for long journeys. These cars are built to be reliable and easy to maintain and so far the costs have been very good. I would… Read Full Review

The petrol Octavia vrs is by far the best car I have ever had. The acceleration especially in 2nd and 3rd gear is terrific. My last car was 2.0 litre Honda Accord sport which I thought was quite good until this new vrs. There really is no comparison. I was unsure of owning a Skoda having grown up right in the middle of all the Skoda/Lada jokes but one test drive soon wiped that away. My son is in his early 20's and he loves driving it just as much as me. Take a test drive with a salesman who… Read Full Review

The car is good in pick up wise, body built and fitness. The car is bad for indian roads since the ground clearance is not at all good and the cabin space should also be improved. Where as in the compitative world the maintenance of the vechile should be less… Read Full Review

The Skoda Octavia RS is a good all rounder, power, room (3 adults in the back is tight but ok), good looking, best colours are black and silver, you will pay extra for 2nd hand cars with all the extras but cruise control well worth hunting for. I have had one for nearly 6 months and been more than happy with it. I have a problem with the central locking at the moment which can be a pain when filling up with fuel due to the petrol cap being linked to it. Can get to the cap release in the boot… Read Full Review

I like the Skoda in general and the RS looks good, it just needs something more to make it stand out from the rest of the Skoda family. The spoiler looks a bit normal and perhaps a bit too large. In general the car could do with a bit of a body revamp, just to make it look cooler… Read Full Review

A fantastic performance hatch in all respects. Race blue is spot on. Very nice interior trim, loads of room, please go and buy one. Very quick, comfort, economy on grown up journeys!, stereo, space, equipment, price, just about everything else. front wiper arms do not lift from screen when lovingly washing it. I keep hurting my fingers when scrubbing the brake calipers! Nothing else… Read Full Review

I have owned my Skoda Octavia RS for just under a week, having previously owned a 2.0 WRX Impreza Wagon PPP, which cost the earth to run, hence why I now own a Octavia. I wanted the performance without the cost and boy have I found it.
The Octavia is a fine car, excellent quality build, super performance (OK not as fast as the Subaru, but it could be with a few tweaks here and there and some little mods and a bit of a re-map) anyway back to the point, I recently went on a journey only 200 or… Read Full Review

My regular 2.0L TFSI vRS is having some back ordered bits fitted, so I asked if I could 'borrow' a 2.0L TDI vRS whilst the work was being done, just for comparison sake. I've only had the car a day so this is by no means an in-depth review, just my initial observations. Whilst not quite chalk and cheese there are some differences between the TFSI & the TDI vRS's. The TDI feels quite front heavy and not as sharp on the initial turn in as the petrol model and the acceleration in the first two… Read Full Review

Wanted one of these for a couple of years. First time I drove it was blown away, what performance for such small outlay. As for the badge don't worry most discerning motorists have wised up and realise what a cracking motor they are. Mine is black, have read the comments about keeping it clean, but when you fall in love with a motor like this cleaning it is a joy. Haven't stopped grinning since I got it!… Read Full Review

I work as a driving instructor for the fire service. We tested BMW, Vauxhall, Ford and Skoda.... The Skoda out performed all the others, especially in the handling and ergonomics side of things. It has great build quality and I didn't feel that I needed to blush either just because it was a Skoda. I want one...bring on those hot hatches!… Read Full Review

Having thought about what new company car to get and being offered a Skoda L&K, I drove a Octavia VRs and placed the order. Picked the car up Monday 12th June with a 190 mile journey ahead of me.
First impressions - Looked great, drove well - Very easy to control, great road presence, unbelievably comfortable considering I'm 6ft 2", just felt glad that all the mickey taking over ordering a Skoda would be in vain. A fantastic vehicle with bags of space.
Heres the advice bit - I looked at… Read Full Review

I've had the Skoda Octavia RS since new and its done 32500 miles.
I've just had a new water pump and thermostate fitted to the tune of £400.
I can't fault the preformance and handling of the car it's A1
The parts however are a bit unreliable… Read Full Review

I have owned my Skoda Octavia RS now for 3 months, it is my 3rd Octavia having already owned the 20 valve SLX and 2.0 Elegance. I doubt whether there is another car that will go this fast for the money in it's category. It is also very economical when driven sensibly 35-40mpg. Having tried all the premium brands of fuel, Shell Optimax delivers the best performance. If your looking for economy, practicality and blistering performance for not a lot of money, this is the car to buy… Read Full Review

Only had the Skoda Octavia RS a couple of weeks, so I apologise that the review is not really in depth!
Now it's run in, I have to say the performace is superb. I get it in the right gear (like any turbo) and it flys!!
It's comfortable, handles well with a golf club friendly boot, and seems to be fairly easy on fuel if you are easy with the throttle (been getting an average of about 36-37mpg)
No problems with reliability so far, but it has only been a fortnight!
I feel I should point out that… Read Full Review

I already own a 2001 Octavia vRS and have had it since new. Having already covered over 91,000 miles, I still think it's amazing. However, this is a review for the new 2.0T FSi engined Octavia vRS, which I have been interested in buying as a replacement. After three in depth test drives, I have decided no, and here is why...
It looks decent, as predicted. It has a pleasing shape, the usual subtle body mods. However, I can't help feeling that some of the older model's macho look has gone. The… Read Full Review
