New limited edition Skoda Octavia vRS Blackline
Skoda has announced a new limited edition version of its flagship Octavia vRS.
Called Blackline, it comes in both estate and hatchback guides and is bundled with a number of tasty options, including 18-inch black alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, satellite navigation, DAB digital radio and vRS branded leather upholstery.
Starting at £21,260, the complimentary kit represents a saving of £1,900. Customers can also take advantage of Skoda’s ‘pay no VAT’ offer, which does exactly what it says on the tin.
The Blackline is mechanically unaltered from the standard vRS. It’s powered by a 2.0-litre TDI engine developing 170hp. It’s mated as standard to a six-speed manual gearbox, though a six-speed DSG automatic is also available.
Customers will also be able to choose from three new colours: Candy White, Black Magic pearl effect and Race Blue metallic.
Buy a vRS Blackline with Skoda Finance and you’ll also get three years free servicing. The deal is based on 7.9% APR representative and includes a £500 manufacturer deposit contribution.
If you’re interested we’d suggest popping down to your local dealer sharpish, as only 500 vRS Blacklines are coming to the UK.
Also being offered is the Octavia SE Connect. Based on the SE trim level, it comes with £1,680 worth of extra kit, as well as being offered with a massive 25% off.
The discount means you can get into the hatchback for just £13,990 on the road. Again, you’d better hurry though, as only 2000 are being made available.
