The 2014 Skoda Octavia GreenLine, the most fuel efficient variant of the brand’s best selling model, has made its motorshow debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Octavia is the sixth GreenLine model among the seven carlines.

Like its cousin VW Golf BlueMotion, the Octavia GreenLine is powered by a 110PS 1.6 litre TDI diesel engine. The transmission is a 6-speed manual unit. The Czech automaker has incorporated a number of fuel saving measures to squeeze every drop of fuel.

For starters, the ride height has been lowered. Frugal-minded start-stop system and brake energy recuperation have climbed on board. The gear ratios are optimized for lower fuel consumption and in addition the car uses low rolling resistance tires. As a result, the combined fuel economy stands at 3.3 litres/100km (30.3kpl) while the CO2 emission is limited to an impressive 87 g/km. All of this is possible with a conventional diesel engine and not a hybrid!

The Octavia GreenLine can be distinguished from normal variants by badges on the front grille and the boot lid.

    Is Skoda bringing this model to India? It will be super-hit because of great mileage even better than small cars.

    I want to buy this car. Can you tell me when it will be launched?

    1. Hello Pawan, VW didn’t launch the Polo Bluemotion here, but they did use some parts from that bin such as the gear shift prompter and the gear ratio values. I assume low rolling resistance tyres would be expensive and the lower ground clearance would be a disaster in India. To answer your question directly, Skoda doesn’t seem to have any plans for the Greenline now.

    That means, some performance is trade off yet linear. No problem if it promises to deliver such tasty fuel efficiency.
