New 2017 Skoda Octavia vRS facelift

More powerful and sharper-looking, the 2017 Octavia vRS is availalble in petrol and diesel options.

The most evident changes to the exterior design can be found at the front. The 'split' headlights, additional creases on the bonnet, angular grille and wider air intakes are part of giving the Octavia the new-look family face that first debuted on the Kodiaq, while optional adaptive full-LED tech also features.

The changes at the rear are limited to some new LED tail-lamps and a revised diffuser design. Skoda's CEO Bernhard Maier, who was present at the reveal, claimed "this is the most time and effort Skoda has dedicated to a makeover". 

Some extra 'Simply Clever' touches have been added, including a torch integrated into the rear boot trim, cupholders that grab hold of the bottle to allow you to open it with one hand, and the option of an electric bootlid. Half leather trim is standard fitment on the vRS, with Alcantara optional.

Mitchell Skoda are expecting both petrol and diesel demonstrator models towards the end of April.
