Skoda adopts a green focus for the new Octavia

The engine details of the new Skoda Octavia have been announced, with eco-focused GreenTec engines forming the heart and soul of the line-up.



Such environmentally-friendly motors can be spotted in both the petrol and diesel offerings, which are being packed into the Czech Republic manufacturer's newest family car.



For example, the 1.2 TSI GreenTec engine is capable of achieving 57.6mpg on a combined cycle and boasts 105bhp. Despite these powerful characteristics, the motor's CO2 emissions are limited to a mere 114g/km.



Keep on progressing along the petrol line-up of the new Skoda Octavia and drivers will soon come across the range-topping 1.8 TSI GreenTec unit. This engine can deliver 180bhp, present 49.5mpg on a combined cycle and cap CO2 emissions to a respectable 131g/km.



Those who opt for a diesel Skoda Octavia instead will find that the GreenTec engines begin with a 1.6 TDI model in this particular line-up.



Drivers who choose this engine will have the opportunity to step behind the wheel of a vehicle that is capable of 105bhp, boasts an economically-friendly 74.3mpg and still restricts CO2 emissions to an impressive 99g/km.



The all-new Skoda Octavia hits roads across the UK in March 2013.
