      Skoda vrs 2019 launch ??

      Hi,

      I am planning to buy Skoda Octavia vrs 2019 and made an advance but yesterday I got a call from my dealership that they are giving back my booking amount. So I just wanted to know whether Skoda is planning to relaunch vrs into India market and when will they be relaunching it.

      Tia

      I read in a news feed that a New Skoda Octavia VRS Challenge edition is being launched..

      Skoda Octavia RS Challenge revealed - Autocar India


      Skoda has taken the wraps off a fully-loaded special edition of its Octavia RS, called the vRS Challenge. Extra kit – over the standard model – is mostly cosmetic, with the RS Challenge featuring the same 245hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that’s under the bonnet of the RS 245 DSG. The motor, which puts out 370Nm of torque, will help the Challenge hit the 100kph from standstill in around 6.6sec.

      The other mechanical upgrade is the motorsport-inspired, VAQ limited-slip differential that is capable of transferring increased engine power to whichever front wheel has the most grip while cornering. The RS Challenge also comes with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) as standard and customers can pick between a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

      Visual changes can mostly be seen on the exterior and include new 19-inch black alloy wheels, a black-trimmed sports exhaust, black folding door mirrors and black RS badging.

      In the cabin, the RS Challenge is fitted with electronically adjustable figure-hugging Alcantara seats that come with a heating function for the front seats. There’s also keyless entry, push-button and a trip computer with a lap timer. Equipment such as the satnav, Wi-Fi and LED interior lighting are shared with the standard RS.

      Why Skoda is not interested in stocking and selling this car just like any other vehicle? Not making enough money or they just don't have a global stock to allot in India. I assume it is imported, is it?

      It is a CKD, assembled in India. However, due to some global environment rules the vRS 230 has been discontinued globally and only the vRS245 will be sold in EU. They might have to homologate the car with ARAI again if they are brining that in, because it has a lot of features not found on the vRS230.

      Skoda Marketing Head has confirmed that there won't be another India vRS launch till mid-2020 on Twitter.

      I thought I?ll buy another car instead of waiting for Octavia Vrs but I?m not able to choose one. I?m not even interested in buying any car other than octavia vrs. So I keep hearing that they might start booking in late summer. Is it going to come to india ? I really really need your opinion should I keep waiting or move on to some other car.
