The Octavia is Skoda’s most popular model, and has been in the UK since 1998 – with the fourth generation joining us in 2020. The car was an early success with customers who appreciated its sturdiness and value for money.
The vRS version was introduced in Gen 1 – it stands for ‘victory racing sport’. The ‘V’ had to be added in Ireland and the UK because of Ford’s established use of the ‘RS’ marque for its performance models. It follows a simple recipe: take the spacious Octavia and put the range’s most powerful engine in it, tweak the suspension to deal with the extra speed, and the vRS is born.
The vRS is always of a top-level spec and the quickest in the range. The Generation 3 version uses a 245 bhp petrol engine with a top speed of 155mph and 0-62 in 6.7secs. Both body variants of the vRS became popular with services in the UK; as a police car, a rapid response vehicle for medics, and as an unmarked traffic car because of its discreet styling.

A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
