Škoda offers two limited-edition Octavia versions for the UK

Article by Anita Panait, on September 7, 2012

Škoda is offering two UK limited-edition variants of its Octavia family car: the Octavia SE Connect and Octavia vRS Blackline. Škoda is also laying out exceptional offers for both limited edition Octavia versions. The Octavia SE Connect is inspired by the highly popular SE trim, but it is fitted with £1,680 worth of additional equipment.

Starting September 4, 2012, Škoda will be giving a 25 per cent discount off the Octavia SE Connect, which brings its OTR price from the initial £18,650 down to just £13,990, while the price of the estate body style is also brought down from £19,690 to £14,760 OTR. The Octavia SE Connect is powered by a 1.6 TDI CR 105PS DPF engine coupled with manual transmission.

The version is considered ideal for both fleet and retail customers as it returns just 119g/km of carbon dioxide emissions. Featured as standard for the Octavia SE Connect are 16-inch ‘Crateris’ alloy wheels, rear acoustic parking sensors and GSM II telephone preparation and metallic paint. The version also features Škoda’s mobile device interface (MDI) connectivity package and Maxidot functionality.

The Octavia vRS Blackline, meanwhile, is the limited-edition version of Škoda’s performance flagship Octavia vRS family car. Offered with a range of extra equipment worth £1,900 at no additional cost, the Octavia vRS Blackline, comes in both hatch and estate body styles. Fitted as standard are 18-inch black alloy wheels and acoustic rear parking sensors as well as Amundsen satellite navigation system, DAB radio and vRS leather upholstery.

The Octavia vRS Blackline comes in three exterior colours: Candy White, Black Magic pearl effect or Race Blue metallic. The Octavia vRS Blackline is powered by Škoda’s 2.0-litre TDI CR 170PS DPF engine.  Customers could choose between a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG automatic transmissions. Prices for the Octavia vRS Blackline range from £21,260 to £23,495 OTR, depending on the chosen body style and gearbox. As an additional treat, Škoda’s legendary ‘pay no VAT’ still applies.
