Wow, Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge adds more kit and chassis tech, Cek Now!


Black trim inside and out, racing-inspired limited-slip differential and lap timer define sportiest vRS yet

 Skoda has launched a fully loaded special edition of its Octavia vRS hot family car, called the vRS Challenge.

The new version of the hot family car features a claimed £4535 worth of extra equipment over the standard vRS while costing just £2460 more. It's available in both hatchback and estate forms.

The extra features are mostly aesthetic, with the vRS Challenge featuring the same 242bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine featured in the vRS 245 DSG. This means the Challenge will crack 0-62mph in around 6.6sec in hatchback form and puts out 273lb ft of torque.


That being said, the vRS Challenge does come with a motorsport-inspired VAQ limited-slip differential, which is capable of transferring increased engine power to whichever front wheel has the most grip under cornering. The vRS Challenge also comes with dynamic chassis control (DCC), which is an £850 option on the standard model. Customers can choose between a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Visual changes are mostly to the exterior, including 19in Xtreme black alloy wheels, a black-trimmed sports exhaust, black folding door mirrors and black vRS badging.

Inside, the vRS Challenge is fitted with electronically adjustable figure-hugging Alcantara seats that are also heated in the front. There’s also keyless entry and start and a trip computer complete with a lap timer. Otherwise, equipment such as sat-nav, wi-fi and LED interior lighting are shared with the standard vRS.

The vRS Challenge is available from today at Skoda dealers, priced from £30,085 for the hatchback and £31,285 for the estate.
