Skoda has unveiled the next-generation of its Greenline models

Skoda has unveiled the next-generation of its low CO2 Greenline models at the Paris motor show.

The new line sees two reworked engines – a 103bhp 1.6 TDI and a 74bhp 1.2 TDI – with stop-start and braking energy-recuperation technology fitted.

The Fabia Greenline and the Fabia Estate Greenline, both fitted with the 1.2 engine, now emit 89g/km of CO2.

The Roomster compact MPV, which will also use the 1.2 unit, has CO2 emissions of 109g/km, which Skoda claims is the best in class.

The Greenline models of the Octavia, Yeti and Superb use the 1.6 engine. The hatchback version of the Octavia will emit 99g/km of CO2 and the estate variant will emit 109g/km of CO2.

The Yeti and the Superb Estate have not been previously included in the Greenline range.

The Greenline version of the Yeti emits 119g/km of CO2, will accelerate from 0-62mph in 12.1 seconds and has a top speed of 109mph. Both the Superb and the Superb estate will emit 114g/km of CO2.

114g/kg for something the size of a Superb estate is quite remarkable really. With that engine it'd be a bit of a slug though...

You're correct it is a good figure for a car of that size. However, these low powered eco models do well in the lab tests but tend to do badly in 'real world' situations where the engine has to work hard just to move the thing.

I doubt the mpg figures most people get won't come anywhere near those claimed. I would suggest that the 2.0tdi, with the eco-tweaks would get better real world mpg figures.

Re: New eco Skodas for Paris

Are those emissions figures accurate ?

Surely a Superb Estate would be worse than a Yeti 114 v 119g/km or is it all down to drag factors . The estate must be a lot heavier too .

Ill stock my neck out and say that Skodas are possibly the most reliable cars on the road today
My daughter bought a year 2000 Fabia 1.4 mpi in 2003 with 15k miles and sold it last December with 74k miles. It still drove well and looked good but it was not without faults during her ownership. In 2004 it failed the MOT and had the steering rack and inner track rod joints replaced. In 2007 the head gasket was replaced and head skimmed. In 2008 play in steering again, had inner track rod joints replaced. It also had a low water buzzer that beeped at you most of the last five years of ownership that dealers thought could be either the ecu faulty or a poor connection that was deemed uneconomic to fix. Then there were problems with the boot release sometimes, the rear washer failed and the glove box lid catch broke. So overall not fault free but it was a nice car. She replaced it with a six month old Honda Civic 2.2 diesel as she wanted more reliability and performance, only time will tell if the Honda has less faults develop.
