The Skoda Superb is now available with a 140bhp 2.0-litre TDI CR DPF common-rail diesel engine.

The unit replaces the 140bhp TDI PD.

Average fuel consumption is boosted by 4.4mpg to 52.3mpg, while CO2 emissions have been cut by 12g/km to 143g/km.

The standard diesel particulate filter (DPF) ensures it's compliant with Euro V emissions regulations.

Prices will still start at £18,205 – the same as the outgoing engine.

The new model comes with a choice of manual or DSG semi-automatic transmissions, and in S, SE, or Elegance trim.

The Skoda Superb offers German quality and Czech pricing, but does that add up to a great deal?

Re: Skoda Superb gets new engine

A welcome addition and a glaring omission from the outset. The current Superb has not been out that long, had I bought one of the Pumpe Duse models I would be more than a little upset by this news.

Great news for the rest of us that are considering this car. I think I'm still favouring the 170 DSG variant though.

Suprb’s 2.o liter diesel is significantly improved over the model it replaces and develops a sensible 140 hp and returns 52.3mpg. Meanwhile thanks to the high-pressure injectors of its common rail system and diesel particulate filter (DPF), it emits only 143 grams of Co2 gas per every kilometer it covers.

A good addition to the range. It cuts emissions, improves MPG and has the same unbeatable price. Its all good. But is there going to be a Superb vRS?
