Škoda SportLine vs Monte Carlo vs RS Explained
What is Škoda SportLine?
SportLine models – correctly written as one word and with a capital S and L – tend to take their next closest variant in a model’s line-up and add enhancements that give the vehicle a sportier and more agressive look. These upgrades can also include features that enhance handling and performance, although this varies by model.
Models available in New Zealand include the Karoq SportLine, Kodiaq SportLine, and Superb SportLine.
What is Škoda Monte Carlo?
The Monte Carlo badge represents Škoda’s 85 years of success at the Monte Carlo Rally. Today, Škoda Monte Carlo stands for tradition, motor racing, and lifestyle, with the badge paying homage to Škoda’s motorsport history.
Models available in New Zealand include the Kamiq Monte Carlo and the Fabia Monte Carlo.
What is Škoda RS?
Labeled as vRS in some other countries, an RS badge represents both sports styling and sports performance, with RS variants boasting more powerful engines and more refined tuning than other variants in the same model range.
Example RS models include the Octavia RS and the Kodiaq RS.
