Hitting the GreenLine high spots
- New Škoda Superb GreenLine is the cleanest and most efficient Superb ever;
- 1.6 TDI 120PS engine returns 76.4mpg and emits just 96g/km of CO2;
- Revised aerodynamics and engine modifications deliver improved efficiency;
- World debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show – arrives in UK late 2015.
MORE than 1,100 on a single tank of fuel is the claim being made by Škoda’s new Superb GreenLine range of cars.
The latest addition to the recently-launched Superb range also claims a predicted combined consumption figure of 76.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 96g/km for the Hatch and 97g/km for the Estate.
To be unveiled at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the newcomer is the most fuel-efficient and cleanest Superb ever built and is powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine developing 120PS.
As with all other Superb models, the GreenLine is equipped with start-stop ignition and brake energy recovery as standard. In addition to the standard Superb’s start-stop ignition and brake energy recovery, both GreenLine models feature longer gear ratios, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and 16-inch reduced rolling resistance tyres.
To meet strict European emission standards, the Superb uses two exhaust gas treatment units: an oxidation catalytic converter and a diesel particulate filter. Nitrogen oxide emissions are reduced through the Superb GreenLine’s SCR system, using AdBlue.
The models have also been engineered with a unique aerodynamic package with the chassis sitting 15mm lower than the standard Superb, while both the Hatchback and Estate models incorporate tailgate and roof spoilers. As a result both models have lower drag coefficients than the standard models at 0.263 for the hatch and 0.275 for the estate.
Further details about the Superb GreenLine, including UK specification and prices, will be announced closer to the launch later this year.
