Czech automaker Skoda has taken the wraps of the Superb GreenLine hatchback and wagon models. Both cars are based on the latest generation Superb mid-size and will be shown in the flesh in a couple of weeks at the Frankfurt Motor Show featuring an ultra-economical four-cylinder, 1.6-liter TDI engine producing 120 PS. This will enable the models to have a fuel consumption of just 3.7 liters / 100 km with corresponding CO2 emissions of 95 g/km in the case of the hatchback. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that Skoda says a single tank of diesel will last for more than 1,780 km.
The Superb GreenLine will come exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission that has longer gear ratios. To achieve that impressive fuel consumption, Skoda’s engineers have fitted the model with a start/stop system, brake energy recovery, aerodynamically-optimized body and also made some tweaks to the underbody and chassis while Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) was added as well.
According to the VW-owned company, the hatchback now has a drag coefficient of 0.263 whereas the estate model has 0.275. Both models will be available starting this fall in the following trim levels: Active, Ambition and Style, just like the regular variants.
