The Skoda Octavia RS 2016 has a much prettier exterior compared to its predecessors. The designers also altered the grille and headlight cluster, which plagued the earlier models. Changes to the interior are not very obvious, but they include a new button layout and white backlit illumination. On the safety front, this car has electronic brake force distribution, dual front airbags, and traction controls. It even has a headrest in each seat – making it very comfortable. The Skoda Octavia RS 2016 came with a McPherson strut suspension that had lower triangular links.
The Skoda Octavia RS 2016 was available as a wagon and mid-size lift-back, with a choice between two engines: a 2L turbo-charged petrol and diesel engine (2.0 TFSI and 2.0 TDI respectively). Its transmission options consist of a double-clutch and manual transmission. In terms of body and dimensions, the Skoda Octavia RS 2016 has a modified shock absorber, a reinforced rear section – offering better torsional rigidity, spring rates, and a laser-welded roof. Both the lift-back and wagon models were 4572 millimeters long, 1769 millimeters wide, and 1447 millimeters tall.
