Skoda announces details for new Superb GreenLine prior to Frankfurt debut
Arriving in the UK in late 2015, the latest addition to the Superb range brings a predicted combined consumption figure of 76.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 96g/km for the hatch and 97g/km for the estate. These provide the new Superb GreenLine with a potential range of more than 1,100 miles on just one tank of fuel – comfortably enough to drive from Milton Keynes to Barcelona.
The new model powered by a 118bhp 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that features a host of advanced fuel-saving technologies and engineering features. As with all other Superb models, the GreenLine is equipped with start-stop ignition and brake energy recovery as standard. In addition, both Superb GreenLine models feature longer gear ratios, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and 16-inch reduced rolling resistance tyres.
To meet strict Euro 6 emission standards, the Superb utilises two exhaust gas treatment units: an oxidation catalytic converter and a diesel particulate filter. Nitrogen oxide emissions are reduced through the Superb GreenLine’s SCR system, using the reducing agent AdBlue.
The Superb GreenLine has also been engineered with a bespoke aerodynamic package. The chassis sits 15mm lower than the standard Superb, while both the Hatchback and Estate models incorporate tailgate and roof spoilers. As a result, both models have lower drag coefficients than the standard models (0.263 Hatch, 0.275 Estate).
Further details about the Superb GreenLine, including UK specification and prices, will be announced closer to the launch later this year.
