Skoda Octavia RS all-wheel-drive model ruled out for Australia

There will be no all-wheel-drive Skoda Octavia RS offered in Australia. The Czech brand's new AWD version of its diesel-powered Octavia RS has launched in Europe, but local showrooms won't see the new version, which adds rear propulsion over the standard front-drive model. The AWD model weighs more than the FWD version, but it's quicker from 0-100km/h, too, at a claimed 7.6 seconds for the sedan and 7.7sec for the wagon (0.3sec faster than the FWD versions).
