The distinctive feature of the 1.5 TSI engine with 110 kW (150 PS) is its Active Cylinder Technology (ACT), a progressive cylinder deactivation system.
If and as necessary and when the engine is not loaded heavily, the ACT system can deactivate the middle two cylinders to reduce the car’s fuel consumption. The process of reactivating the two deactivated cylinders has no impact on the smoothness of the engine run.
The engine therefore runs more efficiently and, depending on the driving style, saves fuel.
Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) is available for the ŠKODA SCALA, ŠKODA KAMIQ, ŠKODA OCTAVIA, ŠKODA KAROQ and ŠKODA KODIAQ (front-drive version).
