Skoda Octavia Hatchback vRS

Category : Others · (1) Comment · by Feb 9th, 2012

Spotted a rarely seen Skoda Octavia Hatchback vRS in the Bermaz Ampang showroom. It comes with Carbon fiber wrap on roof, front Grille, side door, spoiler and dark grey 18″ Neptune Wheels.

Škoda Auto is an automobile manufacturer that based in the Czech Republic and it became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group in year 2000. Distribute in Malaysia by Dunia Prestasi Auto Sdn Bhd under Berjaya Group.

One thing is confusing me, what is the difference between a Skoda Octavia Rs and Skoda Octavia VRS? According to what i found, there is no difference between rs and vrs. “vRS” is the model in the UK, “RS” is the model in other countries. Refer to links below for more information:

  ii) vRs or RS that is the question

This name confusing issue happened because of Ford, as mentioned by forum user from briskoda.net as below:

– RichB86 : “my cars documents say RS but its definatly a VRS its to do with the copyright laws as ford threw there toys out of the pram about it.”

– skorob2007 : “…because Ford got all stroppy over the use of the RS moniker, Skoda UK marketed it as the vRS…”

– ColinD : “Issues with Ford! It’s a dam shame when this happens. I understand that RS is perhaps a “brand” for Ford, like Honda’s Type-R’s…”
