Skoda launches Euro IV Superb

SKODA has launched a Euro IV-compliant version of the Superb 2.5 TDI, with increased power and torque but lower tax liability.

The engine produces 160bhp and 258lb-ft of torque at 1,250rpm and replaces the Euro III-compliant 155bhp 2.5TDI which powered the car from its launch last year.

The new engine complies with Euro IV emissions regulations and loses the 3% benefit-in-kind supplement in company car tax currently levied on diesels.

Despite increases in power and torque, fuel consumption on the combined cycle is identical to the old engine at 39.8mpg. Carbon dioxide emissions are 192g/km for the manual.

The V6 2.5 TDI is available on Superb models in Comfort trim with a six-speed manual transmission, priced at £20,700 on-the-road, or range-topping Elegance with a Tiptronic automatic transmission for £24,800.
