The 2017 Skoda Octavia RS230 finishes off what is, without doubt, one of the most practical, family-friendly and sporty ranges on the market today.
The Octavia RS is the quirky Czech brand's best-selling model. Not just in the Octavia range, but in general. More people know Skoda for the Octavia RS than anything else. Put another way, that would be like Subaru selling more WRXs than anything else, or Mercedes-Benz having the AMG C63 as its top seller.
There’s no denying: here in Australia, we love our performance cars. Across all brands, performance cars do better than almost anywhere else in the world as a percentage of overall sales. So it’s with that in mind, that Skoda has brought in the higher-spec, manual-only RS230.
