Skoda Octavia is a well-known name in the Indian Automotive Industry. The Octavia was first launched in the country in 2002 and it became an instant hit, gathering a lot of love and appreciation from the Indian audience. The Octavia has been in the market since the past 18 years and along with the regular Octavia there is another iteration of it which owns a sweet spot in the heart of the Auto Enthusiasts and it's none other than the Skoda Octavia vRS. The Skoda Octavia vRS is the only true-blue performance-oriented sedan in India in the sub-40 lakh price bracket!
Skoda Octavia vRS is a hell of a machine and is admired by everyone in the Motoring Fraternity. The vRS badge was first introduced in India in 2005 as the Czech carmaker launched the performance-oriented Gen-1 Skoda Octavia vRS and it made everybody go bonkers. A few years later in 2011, Skoda dropped another bomb in the form of the Gen-2 Octavia RS which was essentially known as the Laura vRS. Then came the facelifted third-gen Octavia vRS in 2017 and it was a monstrous car in true form, giving owners grinning moments on every single ride.
