2020 Skoda Octavia RS iV – First Glimpse Ahead Of Geneva Debut. With only days remaining until the Octavia RS iV’s world debut at the Geneva Motor Show, Skoda has released a new video teaser with the sporty compact with plug-in hybrid power.
The range-topping model of the fourth-generation Skoda Octavia comes adopts electrification, a first for any Skoda RS model. The model combines a 1.4-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an 85 kW (116 PS / 114 HP) electric motor for a system output of 180 kW (245 PS / 242 HP) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft).
No performance specs are offered but Skoda says the Octavia RS iV is projected to emit around 30 g/km CO2 over the WLTP cycle. Furthermore, it can cover up to 55 km (34 miles) in all-electric mode thanks to a 13 kWh battery pack.
As with its predecessors, the fourth-generation Skoda Octavia RS looks more dynamic courtesy of a beefier body kit, black bodywork elements and a sporty interior design. Exterior highlights include a black Skoda grille, dynamic front apron with black Air Curtains, and a rear apron with Aero Flaps and a matching rear diffuser in sporty black.
Other distinctive elements are the dedicated bi-color alloy wheels housing red brake calipers as well as the black RS deck lid spoiler (Saloon) or body-color roof spoiler (Combi). Something the eyes can’t see is the standard sports suspension with RS fine-tuning for a more dynamic handling compared to the standard Octavia.
The interior is predominantly black with colorful highlights provided by the contrasting stitching on the sports seats with integrated headrests and leather-covered three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel.
Besides the Octavia RS iV, Skoda’s stand in Geneva will include the regular 204 PS (201 HP) Octavia iV plug-in hybrid model and the new Kamiq Scoutline crossover.
