Skoda will launch the second-generation of its fuel efficient ‘GreenLine’ range at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

Skoda Yeti GreenLine and Skoda Superb Estate GreenLine, the newest members of Skoda’s family of green cars, will also their world debut in Paris next week.

The 1.6 TDI CR 77 kW (Octavia, Yeti and Superb) and 1.2 TDI CR 55 kW (Fabia and Roomster) engines are top-quality technology focused on making cars as economical and environmentally-friendly as possible. Like all other diesel engines offered by Skoda, they are equipped with particle filters.

Both drive units offer smooth, quiet running and dynamic handling. The engine units are economical and flexible thanks to supercharging and direct fuel injection; the harmonious torque curve enables both a sporty and a comfortable ride. Maximum torque of 250 Nm is available from 1,500 min-1 to 2,500 min-1 for the 1.6 TDI CR engine, for the 1.2 TDI CR engine the torque reaches a maximum of 180 Nm at 2000 min-1.

The Fabia GreenLine and the Fabia Combi GreenLine have combined consumption of only 3.4 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (84 mpg UK), with CO2 emissions of 89g/km. The Roomster, a compact MPV, has a consumption of 4.2 liters per 100 kilometers (67.25 mpg UK), a record in its category. CO2 emissions are 109g/km, which is also a top parameter in this class.

The Skoda Octavia GreenLine is supplied as a hatchback and a combi. The hatchback version has combined consumption of 3.8 liters per 100 kilometers (74.3 mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of 99g/km; the combi will travel 100km for 4.2l (67.25 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions at 109g/km. This therefore makes the Octavia GreenLine one of the most environmentally-friendly cars in its segment.

Despite the larger front area, the GreenLine version of the skoda Yeti offers combined consumption of only 4.6 liters per 100 kilometers (61.4 mpg UK) with 119g/km of CO2. Even with these low values, the Yeti GreenLine remains a very agile car. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in only 12.1 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 176km/h.

GreenLine versions are also offered for the top-of-the-range Skoda Auto cars, the Superb and now the Superb Combi. Both versions have combined consumption of only 4.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (64.2 mpg UK), with CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

With the GreenLine models Skoda Auto has created a highly modern range of cars with extraordinarily low consumption, even in classes to which almost no attention has been paid until now in terms of consumption. There are eight different versions with at least one car in each model series.
