Global Specs for 2.0 TSI - 220bhp. If this comes to India, we will most likely get the 1.8TSI but with ~180bhp.

If this car comes I'm definitely buying it. Looks Fantastic.

Hope they don't change anything for India spec.

Please don't add Chrome anywhere Skoda.

Thats one smoking hot VRS. But I am sure they will not bring this to India. I dont care about the chrome as it can be got rid of easily but just wish they get it in the same state of tune (atleast the same engine, we can remap it ) as the European version.

The front grille looks mean and ready to gobble up anything in the way.

We probably will get the 180 bhp engine which would still be faster than the 160 bhp we have currently, I guess. Maybe VW can get the GTI (or Jetta GLI) with the 220 bhp engine. Given how much apetite is there in India for high performance petrols, that is very unlikely to happen though.

Smoking!!!! But isn't that a RS edition

Hope we get the 2.0L or atleast 1.8L TDI churning out truck loads of power. Love the smoked lamps and DRLs

Bring it on Skoda. I am in love with it already! The vRS should be launched along with new Octavia in India. Skoda should not make us wait for it.

Ohhhhhh man the '14 vRS looks smoking hot. So sporty, yet so classy.

I don't like the look of the current Laura vRS at all. The facelift headlamps are weirdly shaped and the body kit looks out of place on the car. Plus, it stands too tall. The old Octavia vRS remains a favourite.

The 1.8L TSI is as good as it gets in the D1 segment. Awesome acceleration & reasonable practicality. I wouldn't complain even if the new Octavia came with 160 horses on tap.

Baah! vRS = High-revving petrol only. Though, a diesel would enjoy far more market success.

Drooooool is all I can do. Skoda's been teasing us all enough with the "Resuscitate Brand Octavia". And this one is the master of it all.. I ll "try" and keep calm but this one just smokes every other performance sedan in the sub-30L range I think!!!

IMO, the brand Laura needs to restricted to the "usual" sedan class while Octavia can be used for the smoking ones!! Just so that there is no confusion...

Look at the Jetta and Passat chasing each other's tail... Yikes!

Very true GTO. Even i dont like the current Laura vRS. IMO 160 horses is more than adequate on our Indian roads and 1.8 TSI engine is a gem.

Even today my old Octavia is seriously fast in stock form.

This looks killer.

+1 to V&V and GTO. The Laura vRS does not look aggressive enough.

As per ACI, the new 1.8TSi in Octavia will produce 180 BHP and would be the first one to get launched in India followed by top of the line TDi with 150 BHP on tap.

I just hope for once, Skoda gets the European spec vRS with the latest generation Octavia.

Cheers,
Ardy

The renderings look great...I hope they consider bringing in a VRs station wagon with a strong 6 or 7 speed DSG !!
