Skoda has a lot to show at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show which starts on March 3.

Skoda Octavia RS 230 –
Featuring a ‘racy’ design for its exterior and interior, the Octavia RS 230, as the name suggests, makes 230 hp from its 2.0-liter petrol engine. Fitted with an electronically controlled differential front axle lock the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds and hits a top-speed of 250 km/h, making it the fastest series-produced Octavia of all time. The Octavia RS special edition’s market launch is set for June 2015.
Skoda Fabia and Fabia Combi Monte Carlo Editions –
The sporty Monte Carlo editions on the new Fabia twins add black 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels, an optional sports suspension, black design elements on the exterior, a tinted panoramic glass roof, a three-spoke sports leather steering wheel and finally a black interior and sports seats with individual design.
Skoda Special Edition range –
Skoda says that at the end of December, the company will be celebrating its 120th birthday, and 110 years since the first L&K automobiles left the production halls.
The ‘Edition’ models’ exterior feature body-colored door mirrors, bi-color alloy wheels, foglights and tinted rear window and rear side windows. The ‘Edition’ interior offers a leather-finished three-spoke steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake, decor in brushed aluminium and textile floor mats bordered with grey stitching.
