Fleet news logo

A turbocharged, three-cylinder petrol engine has replaced the 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine previously in the Skoda Octavia range. 

From its engine size of 999cc, the new 1.0 TSI produces 115 PS and provides 200 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 3,500 rpm.

The new three-cylinder TSI’s fuel consumption is 8% lower than that of the previous engine. The hatchback with 7-speed DSG can return 62.8mpg emitting 105 g CO2/km, while the manual gearbox lowers the latter to 104g/km. Choose the Octavia Estate and this increases to 61.4mpg (106g/km) and 62.8mpg (105g/km) respectively.

An optional aero package which further increases efficiency includes a lowered sport chassis, active air flaps, a tailgate or roof spoiler for further improved air flow and low rolling resistance tyres. Fuel consumption drops to 64.2mpg and the CO2 emissions to 102g/km in both the hatchback and the Estate with manual gearbox.
