Visually, the Skoda Octavia RS differs from the normal Octavia versions by small but fine details, which clearly identify it as a special offshoot. For instance, the black grille is not covered by chrome, but by a black frame. The exterior mirrors are also in a shiny black, as are the borders of the windows. This alone results in a noticeably different appearance. New aprons on the front and rear, special rims and a small rear spoiler round off the visual appearance.
