Skoda Auto is presenting a comprehensive portfolio of second-generation environmentally-friendly GreenLine cars at the Paris International Motor Show. For the Skoda Yeti, a compact SUV, and the Skoda Superb Combi the introduction of ecological technology means two world premieres. Modern engines and new technology that Skoda Auto offers as a part of its attempts to minimise the car industry's impact on the environment are now available to drivers across all model ranges. They offer not only Simply Clever solutions such as a start-stop system and braking energy recuperation, but also top-quality engines utilizing the latest technology that provide for environmentally-friendly and economical running of a car.

The 1.6 TDI CR 77 kW (Skoda Octavia, Skoda Yeti and Skoda Superb) and 1.2 TDI CR 55 kW (Skoda Fabia and Skoda Roomster) engines are top-quality technology focused on making cars as economical and environmentally-friendly as possible. Like all other diesel engines offered by Skoda Auto, they are equipped with particle filters. Both drive units offer smooth, quiet running and dynamic handling. The engine units are economical and flexible thanks to supercharging and direct fuel injection; the harmonious torque curve enables both a sporty and a comfortable ride. Maximum torque of 250 Nm is available from 1,500 min to 2,500 min for the 1.6 TDI CR engine, for the 1.2 TDI CR engine the torque reaches a maximum of 180 Nm at 2000 min.

Design measures in second-generation GreenLine versions lead to marked fuel savings and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. The Skoda Fabia GreenLine and the Skoda Fabia Combi GreenLine have combined consumption of only 3.4 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres, with CO2 emissions of 89g/km. The Skoda Roomster, a compact MPV, has a consumption of 4.2 litres per 100 kilometres, a record in its category. CO2 emissions are 109g/km, which is also a top parameter in this class.

The Skoda Octavia GreenLine is supplied as a hatchback and a combi. The hatchback version has combined consumption of 3.8 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 99g/km; the combi will travel 100km for 4.2l with CO2 emissions at 109g/km. This therefore makes the Skoda Octavia GreenLine one of the most environmentally-friendly cars in its segment. The Skoda Yeti proves that SUV-category cars can be economical and environmental-friendly. Despite the larger front area, the GreenLine version offers combined consumption of only 4.6 litres per 100 kilometres (119g/km of CO2). Even with these low values, the Skoda Yeti GreenLine remains a very agile car. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in only 12.1 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 176km/h.

GreenLine versions are also offered for the top-of-the-range Skoda Auto cars, the Skoda Superb and now the Skoda Superb Combi. Both versions have combined consumption of only 4.4 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, with CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

With the GreenLine models Skoda Auto has created a highly modern range of cars with extraordinarily low consumption, even in classes to which almost no attention has been paid until now in terms of consumption. There are eight different versions with at least one car in each model series.
