Rare first-gen Skoda Octavia Combi vRS found abandoned

The car was available in L&K trim with a diesel engine as well as a performance ‘vRS’ variant with a turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol unit.

A rare first-gen Skoda Octavia Combi vRS has been spotted abandoned in Surat, Gujarat. This particular car is finished in yellow.

The Combi is the estate version of the Octavia and was sold in India for a brief period. The car was available in L&K trim with a diesel engine as well as a performance ‘vRS’ variant with a turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol unit. This engine put out around 150 BHP and 210 Nm.

However, even though enthusiasts loved the car, it failed to sell due to its high price. Many customers who wanted a performance variant went for the vRS sedan. The estate is a rare sight on our roads today, and a Combi vRS even rarer.
