The Skoda Octavia RS normal petrol develops a power of 230 HP. The variant Octavia RS 245 delivery 245 HP, hence its appellation, that is to say, the same power that the Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance recently presented. Despite the fact that the increase of power may seem mild, this version brings some “additives” that should improve the dynamism of the hatchback, although it will probably still be a vehicle especially dynamic to roll in the circuit.
The engine that we find under the hood remains the 2.0 TSI, which in this version more prestacional generated 245 HP. The engine torque goes from 350 Nm to 370 Nm, available between 1,600 and 4,300 rpm. The limited-slip differential controlled electronically, called VAQ, comes standard, and allows a larger motor to the output of the slow corners, where it is not easy to transmit the torque to the asphalt. Some important data about the performance of the RS 245 are a 0 to 100 in 6,6 seconds and a few recoveries of 80 to 120 km/h in fifth gear covered in 6,6 seconds.
