A year after the premiere of the Skoda Octavia RS at the Frankfurt car show, the range of drive units for the model has been expanded to include a 2.0 TDI PD engine.

The heart of the new product is a 2.0 Turbo Direct Injection PD engine with adjustable geometry of the turbocharger blades and a maximum power output of 125 kW (170 PS) at 4200 revs/min-1. The engine achieves its greatest torque of 350 Nm at 1800 revs/min-1. The Skoda Octavia RS 2.0 TDI PD can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds, its maximum speed is 225 km/h (combi: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.6 s, Vmax 224 km/h). Combined consumption is therefore a favourable 5.7 l/100 km (combi: 5.8 l/100 km).

The new Skoda Octavia RS 2.0 TDI PD is fitted as standard with a no-maintenance diesel particulate filter and also an oxidising catalytic convertor, which means it significantly exceeds the EU4 emission standard.

The new 2.0 TDI PD drive unit in the Octavia RS and Octavia Combi RS comes in combination with a six-gear mechanical gearbox.
