Skoda has introduced the Octavia Greenline in UK where it kicks off from 20,150 GBP.

The most economical version of the Octavia ever promises to return an impressive 88.3 mpg UK (73.5 mpg US or 3.2 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of just 85 g/km. Underneath the hood is a 1.6-liter TDI engine delivering 110 HP (81 kW) and has been equipped with a stop/start system and a brake energy recuperation system which sends the recovered energy to recharge the battery.

Skoda fitted the Octavia GreenLine with low-rolling resistance tires which are offered only on this model and are inflated at a higher pressure in order to diminish friction with the road. These tires cover the 16-inch Velorum alloy wheels offered as standard along with cornering front fog lights.

From a visual point of view, the only differences compared to the regular Octavia versions are the added "GreenLine" front and rear badges as well as a logo placed on the gear lever. The Czech automaker mentions the model has a BiK rating of 13% for 2014 and VED Band A status so the running costs will be kept down to a minimum.
