Skoda Fabia Estate GreenLine II and Roomster GreenLine IIMay 7, 2010
Skoda has unveiled the facelifted Fabia Estate GreenLine II and Roomster GreenLine II with new three-cylinder supercharged engines that result in incredibly low CO2 emissions of just 89 g/km for the Fabia Estate GreenLine II.
The new three-cylinder supercharged 75bhp 1.2 TDI engine has Common Rail (high-pressure direct injection), start-stop technology, energy recuperation and gear recommendation.
The 89 g/km CO2 for the Fabia Estate GreenLine II equates to 83.1 mpg. The Roomster GreenLine II has CO2 emissions of 109 g/km and 67.3 mpg.
The new engine also complies with the EU 5 emission standard that, for diesel engines, has stricter regulations for nitrogen oxides and solid particles.
The gear ratios of the car’s five-speed transmission are identical to those of the ordinary Fabia and Roomster models fitted with the same engine.
Skoda claims that the stop-start system can help save up to 4.2 mpg (combined) or up to 7.7 mpg in city traffic.
Energy recuperation means that the vehicle’s kinetic energy is used for battery recharging and has helped to reduce the CO2 emissions by 2-4 g/km.
The cars are also lowered and more aerodynamic, with low rolling resistance tyres, and a gear recommendation system.
