Greenline Skoda Superb due in '09
17 March 2008
New Skoda Superb
Skoda has confirmed that an eco-friendly Greenline version of its new upper medium Superb will be launched next year.
Emissions of just 139g/km for the big Ford Mondeo rival come courtesy of a electronically tweaked 1.9-litre diesel engine plus tyre and aerodynamic changes.
The Greenline Superb will be the second of Skoda's eco models, following on from the Fabia Greenline launching next month.
The Fabia, coming in five-door and estate form, puts out 109g/km of CO2, and will cost £11,490 for the saloon, and an extra £650 for the estate. The company sees the wagon as a particular opportunity, given the size of the car for the price and emissions.
A third Greenline Skoda will be added next year when the Octavia gets the treatment.
There are no hints at emissions figures or pricing yet, but the model is likely to appear when the Octavia gets its mid-life facelift during 2009.
