We found a whopping saving of £4476 off the list price of the all-wheel drive Octavia vRS, bringing the price down to mid-spec Octavia territory.

Being a four-wheel drive hot hatch has its advantages: the AWD Octavia offers improved grip and all-terrain capability.
Being one of the most expensive Octavias on sale has its perks: it comes well equipped, with sat-nav, 18in alloys, xenon headlights and climate control as standard.
The running costs associated with the vRS’ 2.0 TDI engine betray its hot hatch dynamics. Skoda claims 57.7mpg and 129g/km CO2 from the Octabia vRS 2.0 TDI 184 DSG 4x4.
Unfortunately, all-wheel drive has its drawbacks, too. Emissions, although impressive, are higher than in the standard vRS, and you won’t get as far on a full tank of fuel.
Should I add any options?
It's one of the most expensive cars in the Octavia range, and is well kitted out, so we’d leave it as-is and enjoy the £4476 saving.
