2014 Skoda Octavia RS Combi Quick Look
Super fast Autobahn Drive & Sound with the all new 2013/2014 Skoda Octavia III RS (VRS), as the petrol powered 2.0 TSI delivering 220 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Luckily this car had the optional “Sound generator” that let’s this 4-cylinder sound almost like a V8;-) It might be a bit odd that through resonances the in-cab sound is markedly beefed-up, but I think this is a good thing since this car makes a very exclusive and realistic noise! If you listen closely there will be some strange noise within the audio while accelerating. This is actually not from the sound generator but from a loose (plastic) part on the roof console that started vibrating at certain speeds. Of course thats’t not the way its supposed to be and the dealer was able to fix it immediately. Besides that I was positively surprised by the car as the engine has plenty of power and “easily” runs 250 km/h (speedo) on an open Autobahn. The ride is comfortable enough for families and long travels and the consumption of around 10.5 litres / 100 km was acceptable considering we floored it during the whole test.
