The Skoda Octavia Greenline II has been awarded ‘Top Green Small Family Car’ in the ‘Small Family Car’ category in the Next Green Car Awards 2011.
The judges, led by Dr. Ben Lane, Managing Editor of Next Green Car, said “with the new Octavia, Skoda continues to excel with a low emission family car that is practical, affordable, with plenty of room inside for five adults to travel comfortably.”
The Skoda Octavia Greenline II is available in both hatchback and estate forms. The Octavia Greenline II is powered by a 1.6 TDI CR 105PS engine that features common rail technology. The Hatch is capable of 74.3mpg and the estate 67.3mpg, CO2 emissions for the estate version are 109g/km the hatch is only 99g/km so road tax is free for this version.
The NextGreenCar.com awards are based around the website’s unique Green Car Rating (GCR). This ranks every car out of 100 by examining CO2 and seven other exhaust emissions across the life-cycle of the vehicle. This calculation makes it possible to compare different fuel types/drive-trains on a single scale. The lower the number, the greener the car. The Skoda Octavia Hatch 1.6 TDi Greenline II has a GCR of just 28.
