Skoda Octavia vRS review – better than a Golf GTI?

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

Introducing the all-new Skoda Octavia vRS!

So, what will you find in the vRS that you don’t get with the normal Octavia? Well under the bonnet, you’ll have a choice of petrol, diesel or hybrid engines. We’ve got the petrol here, which is a 2-litre turbo petrol that can produce 245hp & 370Nm.

As for design upgrades, you’ll find redesigned & sportier bumpers at the front and back, as well as an updated grille. Whilst inside, you’ll find a number of upgrades, from sports seats through to alcantara on the dash. And of course, don’t forget masses of red stitching throughout! After all, red means sporty, of course.

So, it all sounds pretty good, right? But is it enough to tempt you away from the all-new VW Golf GTI? It may be slightly cheaper than the GTI, but is that enough? You’ll have to stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

    I just don’t get these cars. Why would you buy one!? An AWD Mazda 6 MPS from 2005-2006 shits all over them, for a quarter of the price. A “performance” car of that size with 245HP in 2020 is comical and at £31,500, if you’re not worried about performance, you can get a decent German. Maybe I’m missing something🤷‍♂️

    Czech here. Actually it is not pronounced Skoda but Shkoda, because the original name is Škoda, where Š is read like Sh.

    We're quite liking the new Octavia vRS, but what do you think – would you choose it over the VW Golf GTI or Ford Focus ST? VOTE with a LIKE in the comments we've posted below!

    This car isn't really trying to beat the Golf GTI or the Civic type R – it is built as a more practical alternative – massive boot even on the liftback

    The Octavia seems to have a nicer interior than the new Golf or the A3. But embarrassing for VAG.

    Taxi everywhere drivers will love it! And how pissed would VAG be if the brand they deliberately pitch lower than VW gets a better rating 😆
    Anyway more importantly, the only two sentences I can say in Czech are…How much for both of you? And how fast is your Skoda??

    Its RS not VRS V in the logo is just a design
    There was one og skoda that was called VRS

    In India we get old Octavia VRS which is personally speaking more cooler with dual headlight

    As a Czech, this is car is nice and everything, but quite underwhelming for its price (the car is actually more expensive in the Czech Rep than in the UK). They easily could have made it more powerful (even a fricking Yaris has more hp), also the fake V6 sound in the ''sport'' mode is horrendous.

    HERE it costs 58,900 pounds converted to our price

  • The Brain Dead

    in that price range the quality of the interior materials are good enough.

    7.1 seconds to 60? That's fairly shit, to be fair. I've seen Yianni go faster than that on foot when the ice cream van passed him.

    When are you going to review the cupra leon or fortmentor?

  • Matthew Goodwin

    How are more powerful cars getting slower?! My 56 plate megane 225 Cup (stage 1 remap) used to do 5.9 to 60.

    Mat you can take the parcel shelf and slide it on the back of the rear seats. The plastic that normally holds the shelf can also be used so slide it there. Simply Clever 😁

    Mat when deciding to go out with a girl:
    Should I….
    Avoid it?
    Consider it?
    Shortlist it?
    OR just go right ahead and BUY IT?

    Even my diesel focus spins in second and third in these conditions and it has half the power of this
