Published On September 20, 2011 By at Gaadi

SkodaAuto India, a fully owned subsidiary of SkodaAuto, introduced one of the most anticipated cars, the all new Skoda Laura RS edition today in New Delhi. According to Skoda, the Laura RS will appeal to both the rational and emotional needs of the performance enthusiast and its unique positioning in the segment will make it instantly identifiable among other cars. The vRS continues to thrill with its extensive array of features for improved comfort, convenience and safety. The advanced direct injection technology with turbocharging translates to superlative refinement, class-leading performance and low consumption.

According to Skoda, the new Laura RS is a performance oriented product aimed at car enthusiasts who have an emotional connect with their car. It’s not a product you choose on pure rationale as the RS badge evokes tremendous passion amongst the owners. Designed to provide maximum driving pleasure through performance and precision, the RS also continues to build on SKODA’s reputation for comfort and safety.

The RS takes inspiration for design and performance directly from the racetrack. Sporty Alcantara leather seats with lateral support and an RS emblem set the tone for the interiors, while ensuring comfort of the drivers and passengers even on the longest drive. A three-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel with a six-speed manual transmission continues to combine with high-performance with style and safety.

The Laura RS sports an attractive exterior which reveals its high-performance heritage. Its character is perfectly captured by the 16″ alloy wheels, aerodynamic spoiler on the boot and the aggressive chrome dual exhaust. The understated style of the RS is further reflected in the xenon curve projector headlights with dynamic levelling, corner function, with front fog lights and the LED position lamps. The new Laura RS will be available in four sporty shades of Sprint Yellow, Race Blue, Candy White and Magic Black.

The Laura RS is priced at Rs.1,549,000, ex-showroom, Delhi.
