ŠKODA India has commenced the online bookings of it’s Octavia RS 245.
The RS 245 comes equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-litre TSI power unit which is paired to a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission and delivers a staggering, wait for it, 245 PS… which is evident by its name anyway. It churns out 370 NM of peak torque output in the rev range of 1600-4300 rpm range.
This beast can accelerate from a standstill to a 100 kmph in around 6.6 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph, making it the fastest Skoda offered in India. The car also features a vRS button which changes the character of the vehicle including the handling dynamics, stability control and all the electronic assists change; it no longer is an average daily driver but turns into a beast to tame the streets on your weekend long drives.
The exteriors haven’t changed much from it’s RS avatar, It’s sleeper looks might fool some, but for the true beholder, it is a beauty to cradle on.
It boasts all-new glossy black dual-tone Vega alloy wheels which are 18 inches. The chassis is lowered by 15mm when compared to a standard Octavia.
The interiors are the same as that of RS. Wrapped in Alcantara leather and faux carbon finish on some panels here and there.
It comes with all the additional features you would want to satiate your hunger for luxury. Android auto, apple car play, ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), EDS (Electronic Differential Lock), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), & nine airbags to name few of what the new RS 245 packs.
The RS 245 will be offered in 5 colours – Rally Green, Race Blue, Corrida Red, Magic Black, and Candy White and it’s priced at an ex-showroom price of 35.99 lacs
Well if you are planning to buy the RS 245, then you must hurry as it will be exclusively sold through a centralised platform www.buyskodaonline.co.in and reservation window starts from 1st March 2020 with an amount of INR 1 lakh.
But wait before you wander off in the dreams of your RS 245, Skoda is planning to sell only 200 units of this car. So if you have Rs 42 lacs for a luxurious super sedan, you must hurry and book these before they go out of stock as this limited run sleeper will be all worth it.
