Skoda UK has announced that every model from its Greenline fleet is now available on the Motability scheme. Over twenty different variants offer customers high levels of safety, practicality and a generous specification. Andy Thomas, Sales Operations Rental and Motability Manager at Skoda UK, comments “the addition of the entire GreenLine model range further reinforces our continued strategy of building brand presence on the Scheme. Sales during the first quarter of this year have been extremely encouraging, a trend that we will be looking to continue as we move through 2014.”
To help customers choose the right vehicle according to their individual needs, Skoda UK has launched its new-look Motability website (www.skoda.co.uk/motability). The upgraded portal supplies dedicated offers and product information for each model available on the scheme, in addition to a downloadable Motability Price Guide.
New to the Motability Scheme is the recently-launched Skoda Octavia GreenLine III 1.6 TDI 110 hatch and Estate. This model allows motorists to benefit from one of the lowest emissions in their class at 85g/km CO2 (VED Band A), a combined cycle fuel economy to match at 88.3mpg as well as a substantial load capacity of up to 1,740 litres. There is ample space for the storage of luggage and mobility equipment, whilst Skoda’s Simply Clever storage solutions further enhance practicality.
Carrying a nil Advance Payment and zero road tax, the Skoda Fabia hatch and Estate line-up has also been extended on the programme to include the GreenLine II 1.2 TDI model in both guises. They join the five-door Skoda Rapid Spaceback hatch which brings nearly 1,400 litres of space whilst delivering exceptionally low running costs thanks to emissions of just 99g/km and an impressive fuel consumption of 74.3mpg. The facelifted Yeti and Yeti Outdoor 1.6 TDI GreenLine II crossover models are ideal for those requiring an elevated driving position and access to more rugged environments. The Yeti features a new front and rear, new alloy wheels and fresh up to date interiors. The exterior features a distinctive front grille and redesigned headlights and available as an option for the first time Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. The front headlights are now rectangular and are located further under the front bumpers. The layout of the rear includes a new form of tailgate with distinctive tail lights now in even more precise moulded C-Design, optionally available with LEDs, and, in line with the new Skoda look, two cubist triangular elements alongside the new Skoda logo. The new Yeti models have got an all-new fresh interior that includes new 3-spoke steering wheels in seven variations, new fabrics and patterns for the seat covers as well as new decorative trims on the dashboard.
