THESE are the first official pictures of Skoda's sizzling new Octavian RS hatchback and estate.

The Combi (estate) version is here in late July, with the hatchback arriving a month later.

It will be one of the most anticipated arrivals because of its power, pace and price. If it is anything like the previous one, it will be a cracker.

I understand that there are discussions still going on over prices but I think it is fair to say you can expect the 2-litre TDI 184bhp entry-level diesel to start at around €32,500.

You can also expect the following standard equipment: 18in wheels, Start-Stop technology, half-leather sports seats, bi-xenon headlights with LEDs and twin exhausts.
