Skoda Octavia Greenline details revealed

The forthcoming Skoda Octavia Greenline is set to have impressive economy figures when it goes on sale next year.

It will be powered by the same 1.6-litre turbodiesel engine currently in the Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion, with a predicted average economy of 88mpg. It will also offer tax-busting CO2 emissions of 87g/km.

At the other end of the scale, senior Skoda sources are not ruling out an even hotter version of the new vRS models launched earlier this week.

A Skoda engineer told What Car? the company is considering hotter versions of both petrol and diesel models, possibly with four-wheel-drive transmission to cope with the extra horsepower and assist handling.
