Milotec Lays its Hands on the Skoda Octavia II RS



The second generation of the Octavia is one of the more successful models to come out of the Volkswagen – Skoda partnership. And in RS form, the Octavia is perhaps one of the finest proposals in the family car segment for those looking to trade in some the VW Golf GTi's performance and handling attributes for more space and increased practicality without breaking their budget.

While not as popular as the GTI in the aftermarket scene, there's a selection of tuners that offer plenty of upgrades for the Octavia RS, which is available in Europe with a choice of two powerplants, a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol producing 200-horses, and a 2.0-liter TDI diesel with 170-ponies.
Skoda tuning specialist Milotec is one them and it has introduced a new styling and tuning package for the hatchback versions of the Octavia RS.
On the outside, Milotec designed a new front grille with matching headlamp covers, a revised front bumper with a lip spoiler, carbon wrap for the roof, a rear apron and diffuser and a boot spoiler.
The more aggressive look is complemented by the new 19-inch alloy wheels finished in the same color as the body and wrapped around Hankook S1 Evo tires size 225/35 R19, and a new sport suspension kit from H&R that drops the ride height.
Milotec also offers a selection of interior upgrades such as aluminum pedals and footrest, custom aluminum trim for the dashboard and door panels, and bespoke door sills.
Both the petrol and diesel version of the Octavia RS series can be fitted with a new sports exhaust system from Milotec that increases output by around 5 percent, while the tuner has also developed a new ECU for the 2.0-liter TDI lifting power to 200-horses.
