Skoda’s network of over 130 dealers in the UK are now taking orders for the frugal Skoda Fabia GreenLine (1.4 TDi).
Boasting nearly 69mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 figures of 109g/km, GreenLine models not only do their bit for the environment but should also make forecourt trips mercifully infrequent. Buyers can opt for either hatchback or estate versions of this latest addition to the Fabia family, which cost £11,490 and £12,140 respectively.
In estate guise the GreenLine boasts class-leading economy and environmental credentials. In fact, there is no greener or leaner estate currently on sale in the UK for the money.** This feat has been achieved thanks to additional aerodynamic panels being fitted to the underside of the chassis, the replacement of the spare tyre with a puncture repair kit and the raising of the front bumper by 35mm.
All of this means that on a single tank of diesel a GreenLine driver can expect to cover an incredible 689 miles***. Compare this to the standard 1.4 TDI Fabia 2 – on which the GreenLine is based – and buyers should be able to eek out an extra 75 miles between fill ups.
Available in Amazon Green, Magic Black, Brilliant Silver or Candy White (and with unique GreenLine decals) the newest Fabia is available to order now with the first customer deliveries expected from the 21st of April 2008.
*As of 27th October 2008.
** The Mini Clubman 1.6D has exactly the same CO2 and mpg figures, but costs £3,260 more.
*** Figures based on combined fuel consumption.
