Skoda Auto, owned by the VW group, will introduce its second-generation GreenLine cars at the Paris Motor Show just days from now. Like the first-gen GreenLine models, Skoda's second-gen offerings will focus on incorporating technologies like start-stop systems and regenerative braking to boost overall efficiency and reduce emissions. The GreenLine range includes vehicles like the Octavia, Yeti and Superb, which all feature the company's 1.6-liter direct-injection diesel engine, and the Fabia and Roomster, which both come packing Skoda's minuscule 1.2-liter oil burner.
The GreenLine range boasts some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles available anywhere. Skoda's Octavia GreenLine hatchback has a combined fuel consumption rating of 3.8 L/100km (62 miles per gallon U.S.) and CO2 emissions of 99g/km. Even Skoda's range-topping Superb GreenLine claims to be quite green with CO2 emissions of only 114 g/km. But the greenest GreenLine model of them all is the Fabia, a pint-sized vehicle that trounces many hybrid competitors with a claimed fuel consumption of just 3.4 L/100km (69 mpg U.S.) and an unbelievably low CO2 emissions rating of just 89 g/km. With our team about to hit the ground in Paris, you can bet that we'll have more on Skoda's unbelievably efficient GreenLine range soon.
