Skoda Superb Greenline claims 1,100 miles out of single tank of fuel

Skoda is to add a Greenline model to its Superb hatch and estate ranges.

The new Greenline model will offer predicted combined consumption figure of 76.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 96g/km for the hatch and 97g/km for the estate - which Skoda claims offers a potential range of 1,100 miles.

The car is powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 120ps, and is equipped with start-stop ignition and brake energy recovery as standard. Both Superb Greenline models also feature longer gear ratios, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and 16-inch reduced rolling resistance tyres. 

The chassis sits 15mm lower than the standard Superb, while both the hatchback and estate models incorporate tailgate and roof spoilers to channel air around the rear of the car. 

UK specification and prices will be announced closer to the launch later this year.

    Much as I enjoyed watching Jeremy Clarkson and co they pushed car manufacturers to ever wider and lower profile tyres. I run a Merc E300 which is supposed to be economical yet an even wider tyre is fitted than on my old E220. The lower profile tyre makes for a harsher ride and in the wet the propensity for aquaplaning is much increased. In addition to that the wider tyre means more water has to be moved increasing the fuel consumption. If I wanted to hoon about I would use an appropriate car not my hopefully economical minor luxo barge.
