2021 Skoda Octavia RS iV sketches revealed, Australia not getting it

Sketches of the new Skoda Octavia RS iV have been released ahead of the car's unveiling at the 2020 Geneva motor show in March. The Octavia RS iV will be the first set of vehicles from Skoda's RS sub-brand to feature a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. European buyers will be able to purchase the new Octavia RS iV in both hatch and wagon guises. The new plug-in hybrid powertrain is rated 180kW, which makes us think it has the same setup as the eighth-generation Golf GTE.

Skoda: Scala RS 'would make sense'

The new Scala hatchback could be the next model in the Skoda line-up to get the sporty RS treatment, according to a new report out of the UK. Speaking with Auto Express, Skoda's board member "with responsibility" for sales and marketing, Alain Favey, said that a Scala RS isn't confirmed for production just yet, but is under consideration. "Officially we have not decided anything, but, yes, we are considering a Scala vRS," he said.
