Review: Skoda Octavia RS

Skoda New Zealand's recent advertising campaign makes a bold statement "it's amazing how quickly you get over a name."

Although "Skoda" has  been associated with questionable engines and dubious bodies during the miserable cold war years, the brand is now attempting to re-live the glory days of the 1920s and 1930s when Skoda was a serious European racing brand to be reckoned with

The Octavia RS is a modern take on that heritage, this sleek, turbo charged road weapon is a simple, no nonsense, drivers car.

Well priced and well specced, but have we got over the name?
