Skoda Auto has just launched a new Fabia Estate Greenline II and Roomster Greenline II. The models follow on from the launch of the revamped Fabia and Roomster, and contain new technology designed to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels.
The new models are the first of Skoda’s second generation of environmentally-friendly GreenLine models. Like the new Fabia and Roomster, the GreenLine models have been given a face-lift and are fitted with new technology which is designed to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions levels.
One of the biggest differences in the second-generation GreenLine models are that they contain a turbocharged 1.2 TDI engine with a fuel consumption of only 83.1 mpg and CO2 emissions of 89g/km for the Fabia Estate Greenline II and 67.3 mpg and 109 g/km for the Roomster GreenLine II. Fuel consumption for the Fabia can only be matched by the Volkswagen Polo Bluemotion, but with the new Skoda model prices yet to be announced we’ll have to wait to determine which is the best value for money.
The new Fabia Estate Greenline II and Roomster GreenLine II introduce state-of-the-art technology known as energy recuperation which involves effective utilisation of the vehicle’s kinetic energy for battery recharging – a simple system that helps to continuously save fuel.
Skoda is also introducing a gear recommendation system to the GreenLine II models which will improve economy and helps the driver make maximum use of the engine’s potential.
