SKODA, GREAT BUY

Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

Sad to hear your Skoda Oc­tavia RS230 wagon’s gone. Plenty of great per­for­mance wag­ons are avail­able, but they are mostly very ex­pen­sive cars.

The Audi RS6, Mercedes-AMG C63, E63 or HSV Club­sport R8 are all great cars, but they are much more ex­pen­sive than the Oc­tavia RS. The Oc­tavia is also greatly im­proved with a larger rear sway bar, some­thing Skoda should fit to the RS245 mod­els.

Other­wise you could have a cur­rent gen 2014 Oc­tavia RS for less than $30K. At that price, com­par­ing a six-year-old VE to a new Oc­tavia RS isn’t fair (on the VE) and ser­vic­ing an eight-year old RS4 isn’t so fru­gal.
