› The latest EVO-generation diesel engines emit up to 80 per cent less nitrogen oxide
› OCTAVIA now also available as a plug-in hybrid or mild hybrid
› All-wheel drive and four chassis options, including Dynamic Chassis Control with Driving Mode Select
The fourth generation of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA is more economical and eco-friendlier than ever before. The efficient diesel engines from the latest EVO generation emit up to 80 per cent less nitrogen oxide (NOx); their CO2 emissions are also lower as they consume less fuel. The petrol engines have been further optimised and some of them – making their debut at ŠKODA – have been equipped with mild hybrid technology. The OCTAVIA iV plug in hybrid is another premiere in the range, and the line-up also includes a variant powered by natural gas (CNG) – the OCTAVIA G-TEC. There is a choice of four chassis variants, and of course, the new OCTAVIA is available with all-wheel drive.
“When we developed the new OCTAVIA, our focus was on lowering fuel consumption as well as CO2 and NOx emissions. In addition to the OCTAVIA G-TEC, which runs on natural gas, we now – for the first time – also offer a plug-in hybrid, the OCTAVIA iV. The OCTAVIA e-TEC features new mild hybrid technology, which helps to reduce consumption. And thanks to the application of a ‘twin dosing’ method of exhaust gas treatment, the latest generation of EVO diesel engines emit around 80 per cent less nitrogen oxide.”

The new OCTAVIA comes with advanced, modern TDI and TSI engines as well as significantly improved aerodynamics, which not only reduces fuel consumption but exhaust emissions too. The new OCTAVIA also features the new generation of the MQ281 manual gearbox, which reduces CO2 emissions by 1.4 g/km in the WLTP cycle for the 1.5 TSI/110 kW, compared to the previous MQ250 gearbox. Furthermore, the CO2 emissions are 2.4 g/km lower in the WLTP cycle for the 2.0 TDI/110 kW than those of the same engine when paired with the MQ350 gearbox. The engines’ power outputs range from 81 kW (110 PS) to 150 kW (204 PS).
The SCR exhaust gas treatment now featuring two catalytic converters has been further optimised, which means that nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions generated by the diesel engines from the latest EVO generation have been reduced by up to 80 per cent. Using what is known as ‘twin dosing’, AdBlue® is specifically injected in front of the two SCR catalytic converters, which are arranged one after the other. As a result, the EVO engines fulfil the technical preconditions for the future Euro 6d emissions standard. There is a choice of three power variants for the new 2.0 TDI used in the OCTAVIA. The entry-level engine has an output of 85 kW (115 PS) and can be coupled with either a manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG. The variant delivering 110 kW (150 PS) is also available with all-wheel drive, which – together with a 7-speed DSG – is standard for the 147-kW (200-PS) OCTAVIA. In addition to the changes to exhaust gas treatment, the TDI has been refined in other areas too. Among other things, the crankshaft assembly has been made more efficient, which reduces heat losses and thus ensures a higher combustion speed and combustion chamber temperature. Furthermore, the turbocharger now features variable vane geometry. Both of these aspects mean that the 2.0 TDI generating 85 W (115 PS) and 110 kW (150 PS) respectively consume up to 0.4 l less diesel per 100 km than comparable predecessor engines – all while offering more dynamic driving characteristics.
