The multi-award winning Skoda Superb range is now even more desirable thanks to the addition of the new 2.0 TDI CR 140bhp DPF.

By incorporating the very latest Common Rail diesel technology, this new model is even more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly than the 2.0 TDI PD 140bhp it replaces. Combined fuel consumption has improved by 4.4mpg and is now an outstanding 52.3mpg, while CO2 emissions have been reduced by 12g/km to just 143g/km. The standard diesel particulate filter (DPF) also ensures compliance with the latest EU5 emissions regulations.

The use of a single, high-pressure fuel rail and a lower compression ratio has the added benefit of making the Superb even more refined than ever.

All of these improvements have been made without affecting the Superb’s strong performance or its price, which starts from £18,205. The new 2.0 TDI CR 140bhp DPF engine is available from 18th February with a choice of six-speed manual or twin-clutch DSG transmissions, in hatchback or estate bodystyles and in S, SE or Elegance trim.

This new engine option joins the existing 1.9 TDI PD 105bhp and 2.0 TDI CR 170bhp DPF diesel engines in the Superb range.
