New 2.0 engine for Octavia

SKODA has revised its Octavia model line-up with the introduction of a new 2.0-litre 115bhp petrol engine, improved specification and a price cut at the top of the range. The new engine replaces the 125bhp 1.8-litre unit, and while it drops 10bhp, it offers improved torque and fuel consumption - up from 33.6mpg to 34.9mpg on the combined cycle.

The 2.0-litre engine expands the GLX trim line-up to three models, joining the 101bhp 1.6-litre petrol and 90bhp 1.9-litre TDI engines. The 2.0 GLX costs £13,999 on-the-road as a hatchback and £14,699 as an estate. The new 2.0-litre engine also joins the SLX line-up, again replacing the 1.8-litre unit. As well as the new engine the SLX range receives a price cut of £300, taking the 2.0-litre hatchback to £15,199 on-the-road and the estate to £15,899. The 110bhp

1.9-litre TDI drops to £16,199 for the saloon and £16,899 for the estate. The SLX specification is also improved with standard features now including electronic climate control instead of a sunroof, remote control central locking and a single CD player.
