Škoda Octavia RS Czech liftback universal. But lags behind sports competitors.

Škoda Octavia has proven itself as a practical car. With a spacious interior, good ergonomics and a spacious luggage compartment. The RS version has become the most powerful in the manufacturer’s lineup. Offering consumers a mixture of dynamics and comfort.
From the “civilian” version, the “charged” Octavia is distinguished by the RS nameplate. Also, bright stitching in the cabin and sports seats with a developed profile. In addition to external transformations, the car’s chassis settings have changed. There is an improved brake performance and stiffer suspension settings. The Škoda Octavia RS is powered by a 220-liter 2-liter gas turbo engine. Which is combined with a 6-speed mechanics or “robot” DSG with wet clutches.


One of the main parameters of a sports car is acceleration dynamics and maximum speed. Acceleration 0-100 “RS” makes in 6.9 seconds. And its maximum speed reaches 248 km / h. Almost 7 seconds to “hundreds” – is this a sport?
For comparison, the 2019 Ford Focus ST with a 2.3-liter “turbo gasoline” accelerates to 280 in 5.7 seconds with 280 forces. And the Honda Civic Type R shows a similar result with a 2-liter 320-horsepower turbo engine.

From the “charged” Škoda Octavia can also be achieved 5 seconds.

It is on acceleration and 300 “hp.” under the hood. But for this it is only necessary to “chip”. The only thing is that these 300 forces Škoda Octavia RS can not realize because of the factory front-wheel drive performance. Therefore, before you “chip” the Czech liftback, you need to implement an all-wheel drive system in it. At the same time, it is worthwhile to understand that chip tuning of the engine is expensive. But to remake “RS” to four-wheel drive is much more expensive.

It turns out that the “charged” Škoda Octavia RS is a dubious choice. After all, sports cars are bought for the sake of the possibility of instant “bailout” from a place. But “Czech” in the factory version can not give this. The RS version is a purely niche product. Which is acquired as a compromise between dynamics and practicality for every day. But you can disagree with this opinion. And write yours in the comments.
