Diesel-only cee'd Sportswagon targets fleet users

By / 8 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

The Europe-only model goes on sale today, with low maintenance and insurance costs designed to keep costs down for businesses. It’s lower and narrower than its predecessor, and features a slightly smaller boot, at 528 litres with the seats up and 1642 with the rear bench folded flat, against 534 and 1664 litres for the first generation car.

Two diesel engines will be available from launch, as found in the hatchback. The entry-level 1.4-litre offers 89bhp, matching the output of the 1.6 CRDi in the outgoing car, but gains 5mpg and sheds 10g/km CO2 to return 119g/km and 67.3mpg.

A more powerful 126bhp 1.6 CRDi is also available, which now emits 116g/km CO2, 8g/km lower than its predecessor, and returns 64.2mpg. This can also be fitted with an automatic gearbox, at £1,100, which offers 50.4mpg average fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of 149g/km.

Trim levels will match the hatchback, comprising 1, 2, 3, 4 grades with a 4 Tech version at the top of the range. All models include USB and Bluetooth connectivity, heated door mirrors, 12-volt power sockjet in the boot and alloy wheels for cars with the 1.6-litre engine.
