This is a very rare Manual Diesel Octavia RS. It is the perfect blend of fun, practicality and economy. It is a very easy car to live with everyday, the ride is excellent around town, and fuel economy is better than an average light car. For city driving it averages just above 7L/100km, and on the highway it will go over a 1000km on a tank – I drove from Canberra to Sydney and back on half a tank. The car has been well maintained and has been parked undercover at night. It also has a full service history done by the dealer servicing department with all invoices available. This car is also fitted with the leather option, with front leather sports seats, and the RS logo embossed on the backrests of the front and rear seats. The rear seats are fitted with both top tether points as well as ISOFix brackets for car seats – great for car seats for children. It also splits 60;40 as well as having a rear seat arm rest with a ski port. The boot is far and away the biggest in its class, and trumps several cars in the classes above it as well, you can easily fit 4 adults and their luggage in this car without problems. The 2011 model year has the Columbus Satellite navigation system as standard and it works brilliantly, has a good, clear touch screen and the directions are also shown in the display between the instruments, making it very easy to use. This system also includes a 20GB hard drive for storing music in the car, as well as a DVD Drive, SD card reader and an AUX plug. In terms of convenience features, you have dual zone climate control, automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, rear parking sensors with optical display as well as sound, and the glove box and centre console are both cooled by the air conditioning. And point it at a bit of windy road and you will have the biggest smile on your face, it handles like a dream, there is no body roll when you push it hard and the power delivery from the engine means that you need something at least 3 times the price to keep up. I will also include a TDI Tuning box from the UK, which can be installed and taken off in 5 minutes, this gives an increase in power of about 30KW and an additional 50NM of torque (meaning +150KW and +400NM) without affecting the fuel economy.
This car is a real pleasure to drive, it has always been garaged, has a full service history and is in excellent condition. Excellent fuel economy. The car can be viewed in Crawley or Lesmurdie Skoda is owned by Volkswagen and are built off the underpinnings of the Golf. The Octavia RS is principally a Volkswagen Golf GTI underneath with a Skoda body on top. The core mechanicals and chassis are shared.
