2017 Skoda Octavia RS facelift revealed ahead of Australian debut: New looks, more power for hot Czech

The updated Skoda Octavia RS was unveiled overnight with a smidge more power for the petrol model. Visually, the Octavia's controversial new headlight arrangement is a little less obvious in the RS, as the sports model has a completely dark grille that blends into the secondary headlamp units. The RS models are distinguished from lesser Octavias by their more aggressive front fascia, a full width red reflector and black diffuser style element at the rear, and LED tail-lights.
