In the review the updated Skoda Octavia RS 2018-2019 years – photo, price, equipment, reviews and technical characteristics restyling versions of the Skoda Octavia RS family. The official world premiere of the upgraded Skoda Octavia RS and the Skoda Octavia Combi RS are scheduled for the spring of 2017 in Geneva International Motor Show.

The start of sales of the new Skoda Octavia RS in Europe and Russia will be at the beginning of summer next year, the price will be known after the world premiere in Geneva. Previously, we can say that the updated “er-esque” will be slightly more expensive than the pre-reform model for 1000-1500 euros. So Russian motorists will be able to buy a new Skoda Octavia RS 2017 at a price of 2150-2200 thousand rubles.

It should be noted right away that the new Skoda Octavia RS and the Skoda Octavia Combi RS wagon experienced a planned restyling in full accordance with the strategy of updating the entire Skoda Octavia family. So after the usual versions of Octavia with a new face that evokes nostalgic memories of the Mercedes E-Class (W212), the Czech manufacturer also introduced an updated version of the RS with four faceted headlights. In addition to changes in the design of the front of the body, the renewed “Er-esque” received a stiffer suspension, a more powerful gasoline engine, a modern Columbus multimedia with a 9.2-inch touchscreen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a number of electronic assistants and assistants.

Traditionally, we start with the appearance of the updated model. “Er-eski” by right are one of the most dynamic and fast models of the Czech company, produced serially and, understandably, such cars simply must look aggressive and predatory. So in addition to the new head optics (optional adaptive full-head headlamps are available), there is an expressive black painted falshradiator grille, a solid bumper with huge air intakes and horizontal LED fog lights, stylish alloy wheels from standard 17-inch to optional size R18 and R19, LED parking lights with 3D graphics, LED back-light plate, spoiler on the boot lid, sports bumper with a bright diffuser and a ladder Exhaust pipe tips.

Against the background of prereform versions, the updated Octavia RS visually looks more evil and aggressive. In addition, restyling versions of the Czech “lighters” received an underestimated 15 mm suspension and a 30 mm extended track of the rear wheels – all for a more stable car behavior when driving at high speed and confident cornering.

Registration of the new Skoda Salon Octavia RS almost completely repeats the interior of the civil versions of the Skoda Octavia survivors of the upgrade. But of course, correctly placed accents with monograms RS on the rim of the steering wheel and the handle of the checkpoint, door sills and chairs, even rugs with magic beeches. Front sports seats provide excellent support for the back and hips of the driver and front passenger when driving aggressively. Well, premium finishing materials further emphasize the high status of the model.

As a new equipment, the modern Columbus multimedia system with a 9.2-inch color touchscreen (Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Mirror Link, WLAN and LTE, satellites navigation and the Internet, Skoda PhoneBox system) provides a connection for the smartphone to External antenna and wireless charging), which appeared initially in the new crossover Skoda Kodiaq , Trailer Assist, Blind Spot Detect and Rear Traffic Alert.
