First look at new Skoda Octavia RS iV

Twenty years after the debut of the first Octavia RS, Skoda has released three official exterior design sketches of the all-new Octavia RS iV.

The fourth generation Octavia RS is set to premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3.

The design sketches reveal the Octavia RS iV in coupé-style saloon and dynamic Combi estate format.

The most eye-catching design elements are a black Skoda grille and a sporty front apron with large air intakes and distinctive black detailing.

Large alloy wheels, diffusers at the front and rear and spoilers on the saloon’s tailgate and the rear edge of the Combi’s roof underline the dynamic appeal of the Octavia RS iV.

Skoda tells us this is the first RS model to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining family-friendly versatility and sports car-like performance with sustainability and efficiency.

The new model features a plug-in hybrid powertrain generating a system output of 180 kW (245 PS).
