Engines: Premiere of the first EVO-generation diesel engine

› New, lighter 110-kW (150-PS) engine with lower CO2 emissions
› Choice of seven engines and ten engine/drive combinations for the upgraded ŠKODA SUPERB
› SUPERB SCOUT exclusively available with either of the most powerful engines, all-wheel drive and Rough-Road package

The upgraded SUPERB sees a new generation of engines make its ŠKODA debut. The 2.0 TDI outputting 110 kW (150 PS) is the first diesel from the new, particularly dynamic, efficient and low emission EVO generation. There is a total of seven engines, ten different engine/drive combinations and three chassis variants to choose from. The most powerful diesel is available with all wheel drive as an option, whilst for the range-topping petrol version it comes as standard. The new ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT is exclusively available with either of these two top-of-the-range engines and all-wheel drive.

The new 2.0 TDI delivering 110 kW (150 PS) is the Czech brand’s first diesel from the new EVO generation of engines. In comparison to its predecessor, several aspects have been optimised, including the crankshaft assembly and the exhaust, turbo, fuel-injection and thermo-management systems. This results in a lower weight and fewer emissions as well as reduced fuel consumption. In the upgraded SUPERB, the 2.0 TDI producing 110 kW (150 PS) is available with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG and fulfils the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.

Mr Brož, what led to the decision that Volkswagen would develop a brand-new diesel engine?
From the perspective of performance and efficiency, diesels are still one of the most efficient types of engine in the automotive industry. They offer high maximum torque combined with low fuel consumption and – thanks to modern exhaust technology – low emissions. Most notably, diesels come into their own on long journeys. The engines produced by Volkswagen are constantly being developed in order to further optimise them, make them even more efficient and to further reduce CO2 emissions. The new EVO engines are the result of this development work.

How are the EVO engines different from conventional EA 288 engines?
The new EVO generation is considerably different to the EA 288 engines used until now. Thanks to the separation of the cooling for the cylinder head and engine block, the EVO versions reach optimum operating temperature more quickly. Overall, the cooling concept has also been optimised. The VGT vanes for the exhaust-gas turbochargers fitted in the new engines are adjusted electronically using a control unit. This allows for more precise and faster adjustments. The injection system with solenoid valve injectors is designed for a maximum system pressure of 2,200 bar. As the new ŠKODA SUPERB features an electromechanical brake booster, the engine no longer needs a vacuum pump. In addition, we have insulated the engine more comprehensively, allowing us to further improve the acoustic characteristics of the car.

Are there any design-related or structural differences between the individual power variants?
The new EVO generation of engines covers a very broad spectrum of power outputs, ranging from 90 kW (122 PS) to 147 kW (200 PS), and offers maximum torque of up to 400 Nm. in order to be able to achieve such a range, we have developed a so-called efficiency variant for the 90-kW (122-PS) and 110-kW (150-PS) power levels and a performance variant outputting 147 kW (200 PS), which is structurally different as well. In the 147-kW version the engine block and pistons are made of aluminium, whilst the other two engines use steel pistons with longer connecting rods. These two also feature smaller-diameter main and con rod bearings. The performance variant also has a water-cooled turbocharger and uses an electronic coolant distribution unit, which regulates the coolant flow via an electric actuator and a thermostat. In contrast, the efficiency variant employs thermostatic regulation.

Ten engine/drive combinations

Various chassis options

In addition to the standard chassis, ŠKODA is offering other options for its flagship. In the ŠKODA SUPERB SCOUT, the Rough-Road package fitted as standard provides underbody protection for the engine and undercarriage, and raises the ground clearance by 15 mm. in conjunction with all-wheel drive, which comes as standard, this ensures that the new adventurer cuts a fine figure on rougher terrain too. This is also enabled by the additional Off-Road mode in Driving Mode Select. Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is available as an option for both the SUPERB SCOUT and the SUPERB SPORTLINE. The ŠKODA SUPERB SPORTLINE is fitted with a sports chassis as standard, lowering the car by 15 mm. For the top-of-the-range ŠKODA SUPERB L&K, a version of DCC that lowers the car by 10 mm is included in the standard equipment.
