Skoda Octavia 1.2 TSI and 1.6 TDI CR DSG introduced

The Skoda Octavia family hatchback and estate range is now even more attractive thanks to the addition of two new engines. A new, downsized 1.2 TSI 105bhp petrol engine is now offered along with the very latest 1.6 TDI CR 105bhp diesel engine with DSG dual-clutch transmission.

The state-of-the-art 1.2 TSI 105bhp is now available with both 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG gearboxes, in either hatchback or estate bodystyles and in S and SE trim levels. This engine first saw service in the recently introduced Yeti crossover, where it instantly impressed with its punchy performance and frugality thanks to its combination of a small-capacity petrol engine with turbocharging and direct injection technology.

It’s a similar story in the Octavia, where the 1.2 TSI hatch combines low CO2 emissions of 134g/km with a 0-62mph time of just 10.8 seconds; exceptional for its capacity of 1,197cc. Fuel economy is similarly impressive, with a combined figure of 49.6mpg. This new engine is available with both 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG transmissions.

Meanwhile the recently introduced, latest-generation 1.6 TDI CR 105bhp diesel is now also available with 7-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox, combining smooth, effortless performance with CO2 emissions of just 123g/km. The 1.6 TDI CR 105bhp DSG is available with the same bodystyle and trim combinations as the 1.2 TSI as well as in Elegance guise.

These new additions to the Octavia range continue to improve an already multi-award-winning formula of practicality, comfort, value for money and low running costs.
