New Skoda Octavia engine line-up revealed

JonathanJanuary 28, 2013

The engine line-up for the new Skoda Octavia car has been revealed, with the Czech Republic manufacturer appearing to be adopting a green approach for the vehicle.

In total, drivers will be able to choose between four petrol motors and four diesel units upon the new Octavia’s launch.

However, motorists who take the time to analyse the engines will soon notice that the offerings are dominated by Skoda’s eco-focused GreenTec motors.

Leading the charge on the greener motoring front is the 1.6 TDI GreenTec engine, which enables the new Skoda Octavia to hit 106bhp and achieve 74.3mpg. At the same time, the vehicle’s CO2 emissions are limited to a mere 99g/km.

For those who prefer petrol units under their car’s bonnet, the range leading 1.8 TSI GreenTec engine boasts the ability to deliver 180bhp and 49.5mpg on a combined cycle, while returning just 131g/km of CO2 emissions.

The entry-level models for both the petrol and diesel varieties of the new Skoda Octavia are also impressive.

For one, the 1.2 TSI petrol engine model is able to achieve 86bhp and 54.3mpg, while keeping CO2 emissions to a respectable 119g/km.

Looking at the entry-level diesel unit – a 1.6 TDI motor – the new Octavia is still capable of presenting drivers with 90bhp and 68.9mpg on a combined cycle.

On top of this, the car’s maximum torque is a blistering 250Nm at between 1,500 and 2,750rpm and its CO2 emission rating is just 109g/km.

The new Skoda Octavia launches across the UK in March 2013.

For motorists hoping to find a sportier vehicle from the Czech Republic car maker, the Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI Monte Carlo five-door Hatchback should more than suit.

As well as packing a bold and very striking exterior design, the vehicle is capable of hitting 62mph from rest in a mere 11.7 seconds and returns an impressive 54.3mpg on a combined cycle.
