New Skoda Fabia Estate Greenline with 83.1mpg and 89g/km of CO2 Priced at £13,740 in the UK
The most environmentally friendly Skoda model to date, the new Fabia Estate Greenline II, goes on sale in the UK in the beginning of July with pricing set at £13,740.
The second generation Greenline models is powered by the VW Group's new three-cylinder turbocharged 1.2-liter common rail turbo diesel engine with 75-horsepower. To help improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions, the Greenline model also gets start & stop technology, a kinetic energy system for battery recharging, gear recommendation system, lowered and aerodynamically-covered chassis and low-rolling resistance tires.
The result is an impressive combined fuel economy figure of 83.1 mpg UK [69.2 mpg US or 3.4lt/100km] and exceptionally low CO2 emissions of only 89g/km. Skoda claims that the Fabia Estate Greenline II can cover a distance of 932 miles or 1,499 km on a single tank of fuel.
The Fabia Estate Greenline II will be followed by a five-door hatchback model featuring the same engine and fuel-saving technologies in October 2010.
