Skoda introduces frugal Superb GreenLine in Europe

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.
