Skoda Octavia vRS 230 planned, power hike set for Geneva unveil
New 227bhp Skoda is fastest series production car produced by the brand
Skoda is to unveil a new higher-performance variant of its Octavia vRS at the Geneva motor show. Called the Octavia vRS 230, it boasts 227bhp, which is 10bhp more than the previous version.
Alongside the performance hike, the vRS 230 will also come with an electronic differential as standard and a revised interior. New seats and trim, as well as subtle exterior changes will mark the car out from a standard vRS.
Performance stats include a 6.7-second 0-62mph time and a top speed of 155mph. Skoda plans to launch the vRS 230 as a hatchback and an estate. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but we do know that the car will be going on sale in June.
The vRS 230 will be making an appearance at the Geneva motor show, so expect more details to arrive when that occurs.
