2016 Skoda Superb Greenline variant has been unveiled ahead of its first public appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 17. The ultra efficient variant of the car is available in both sedan and estate body styles.
Powered by a 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine which produces 120 PS, Superb Greenline has an astonishing mileage of 27.02 kmpl (3.7L/100 km) and an impressive CO2 emission of 95 g/km. The company has achieved this through advancements in powertrain and fine tuning the car’s aerodynamics. With a full tank of fuel (66 litres), the new variant is claimed to have a range of 1,780 km (1,106 miles).
The oil burner is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission with longer gear ratios. The car also benefits from regenerative braking, start-stop and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems.Regular variants of the sedan will be launched in India sometime next year.
The ride height has been lowered by 15 mm, resulting in considerably improved aerodynamic efficiency. Further a roof spoiler for the Combi and a boot spoiler for the sedan version have been added. These improvements have resulted in lower drag co-efficient of 0.263 for sedan and 0.275 for the Combi.
Greenline variant is also equipped with low rolling resistance tyres with 16-inch alloy wheels (17-inchers optional). Apart from the Greenline badge on the boot, the visual differences include tinted rear glasses and windshield, and standard front fog lights with cornering function.
