What DSG is used in the Skoda Octavia vRS?

I am thinking about buying a 2019 Skoda Octavia vRS Challenge 2.0 TSI 245 DSG. Is this a seven-speed wet box or some other type of automatic gearbox?

It will be a DQ500 seven-speed dual wet clutch DSG. Better than the old DQ250 six-speed dual wet clutch DSG, but can still be sluggish and frustrating to drive. It needs fresh oil and a filter every three years or 38k miles but is nothing like as problem prone as dry clutch DQ200.
